ROLC Provides Simulation Training for Law Enforcement Professors in Mongolia






On March 18, the Rule of Law Collaborative (ROLC) began teaching a series of online workshops to train law enforcement professors from the University of Internal Affairs in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia to incorporate practical simulation training in their classrooms.  Karen Hall, Deputy Director of the Collaborative is leading the training, and will cover the topics of adult learning, preparatory training, establishing learning outcomes, simulation structure models, developing stories, developing evidence, facilitating simulations, designing and immersive setting, evaluation, and iteration, among other subjects.  Participating professors will have the chance to design their own simulations and seek feedback from the instructor.  The online training will take place during the spring and culminate in an in person simulation in Ulaanbaatar for 60 law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and judges focused on investigating financial crimes.  

This project is the culmination of a long partnership with the The Asia Foundation’s local Mongolia office and follows two previous in-country criminal justice simulations that ROLC produced for The Asia Foundation.  The U.S. State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs funds the program that is focused on curbing the illegal trafficking of minerals.
