First-Time Instructor Guide

Bring real world experience into your classroom!

We look forward to working with you!

Thank you for considering our simulation for your class!


All of Interpretive’s simulations include our fully administered services. We take care of the logistics of managing your simulation event, which allows you to focus on teaching. When you choose to adopt our simulation, you are partnered with one of our customer relationship managers (CRMs) who are there to answer your questions and help you integrate the simulation into your class. In addition, our experienced customer support specialists will answer all student technical simulation questions submitted online, within 24 hours.

One of the real benefits of the simulation experience for faculty and students is the meaningful conversation that occurs as core concepts are brought to life. Our customer support team is experienced at only answering appropriate technical simulation questions, so as not to interfere with this interaction.
