What is a Role Play?
A role-play exercise is an assessment activity in which students act out an imaginary scenario that closely mirrors a situation that could occur in the real world. Role-plays can be used to allow students to experiment with different styles of interaction, practice new communication techniques or explore complex issues. They are generally used in classes dealing with social issues (social sciences, management sciences, etc.) or communication strategies (interviewing techniques, conflict management, etc.). Essentially, a role-play is a form of interactive case study.
