Keywords

Abstract

In this chapter, we report some of the difficulties we have encountered as we have attempted to design simulations that are authentic to a professional environment while also adequately scaffolding learning tasks so they are both achievable and motivating for students. We specifically report our study of these tensions in the context of adding an ethical dilemma to a cybersecurity simulation.
