Development of the SLIPPs Simulation scenarios (IO 4) was led by Prof. Loredana Sasso and Prof. Annamaria Bagnasco, University of Genoa, Italy, working with the SLIPPs
sim-scenario sub group.


The simulation scenarios draw on the wider work of the entire SLIPPs project team including:


• The SLIPPs Learning event recording tool (SLERT)

• The data gathered using the SLERT and the selection and analysis of that data


The following SLIPPs partners were members of the sim-scenario sub group:


Dr. Giuseppe Aleo University of Genoa, Italy.

Assoc. Prof. Alison Steven Northumbria University, UK (SLIPPS lead)

Mrs. Arja Sara-aho Saimaa University of Applied Sciences, Finland

The sub-group discussed the SLERT data, the formats of the scenarios and agreed the topics to be covered.

The 'Guidelines for scenario development' were compiled by the University of Genova.
