Role-plays serve a unique purpose in providing practice and feedback for aircrew team development training in the classroom. When compared with other training strategies, role-play provides targeted practice and feedback of specific behaviors at low cost, with the trade-off being the amount of fidelity it provides. This article presents guidelines for designing role-plays to elicit crew resource management (CRM) behaviors and providing feedback to trainees on their performance. Through careful design procedures, a role-play exercise can provide both targeted practice and feedback and serve a useful purpose in the overall training design of a CRM training program.
