MindEdge offers "Leading the Courtney Museum" Non-Profit Management Simulation

August 28, 2009

MindEdge is now offering a new non-profit management online simulation, "Leading the Courtney Museum," as an innovative learning opportunity.

Chief Learning Officer Magazine recently identified games and simulations as one of the top five learning trends for 2009. MindEdge has brought its decades-long involvement in online education for adults to bear on its self-paced, interactive simulation. "Leading the Courtney Museum" is a ten-hour learning experience designed to challenge and engage participants while exploring key real-world leadership issues confronted by non-profit managers.

The learner assumes the role of executive director of the troubled Courtney Museum and deals with a series of personnel, marketing, financial, and board/community relations issues. As the learner makes tough decisions, an adaptive scoreboard reflects the impact of those choices on the Museum's prospects. Commentary from experienced non-profit leaders provides qualitative context and explores the consequences of choosing different paths for reviving the Museum.

Learners can experience "Leading the Courtney Museum" as a stand-alone program, or in conjunction with MindEdge's seven-course non-profit management certificate. The simulation is offered through the Winchester Center for Management Development and MindEdge's continuing education and training partners. MindEdge's non-profit courses have been approved for Certified Fund Raising Executives (CFRE) International continuing education points.
