Abstract:

This series of studies demonstrate the usefulness of information technology, simulations, role playing, and internet conferencing in helping students understand the world more fully by developing their sense of empathy.
One takes students to a different time, when an international crisis almost led to a nuclear disaster, and explore their emotions toward the Cold War.
A second permits religious leaders in the Middle East to transcend space, national borders that prevent them from talking to each other, and share their ideas with students.
A third aims at transcending studentsÂ’ attitudes about the Middle East and examine their empathy toward nations in the region.
The simulations and internet conferences have taken place and been studied on websites created by William Stover and Michael Ballen and sponsored by Santa Clara University. The Conflict Resolution Simulation site www.scu.edu/crs presents several existing simulations and templates for creating new ones that can be used by instructors of international studies and political science at no cost.
The Cuban Missile Crisis simulation, the first study presented in this paper, is found on the site as well as a contemporary Middle East diplomatic simulation that has involved universities, faculty and students in North America, Europe and the Middle East. Instructors can join these simulation during the scheduled times or create their own version using the available templates.
A third deals with international legal adjudication that has been useful in the teaching of international law. Finally, the site contains a method for facilitating dialog among Christians, Jews, and Muslims.
