Land Management Thematic
Land Management is a role playing unit which is partly done on paper, partly done via Moodle. We accomodated 90 students in our last role play, and were able to introduce a highly integrated unit which included conservation, governments, land rights, and commerce. This is the latest iteration of the course, and has the tools needed to run this unit fully.

Over the course of a month, we were able to role play a simulated society based on 5 islands. The students were fully engaged, and thirsting for more learning following this intense block of study. We had ~4 hours per week to run the simulation, and learned as much from the students as the students did from us. An amazing unit, more reminiscent of a MMORPG than a traditional classroom.
