Khaled, Anne; Gulikers, Judith; Biemans, Harm; van der Wel, Marjan; Mulder, Martin – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2014
The intentions with which hands-on simulations are used in vocational education are not always clear.

This makes it difficult to pinpoint the added value that hands-on simulations can have in an innovative vocational…
