Teaching topics related to Cyberinfrastructure (CI) is most effective when students have opportunities for hands-on learning. Participation and pedagogic challenges stem from the need to provide students with access to CI platforms, and to expose students to a variety of different learning scenarios. By using simulation, a software artifact that mimics real-world executions, these challenges are obviated as the only requirement is that students have access to a computer and as simulated executions can target arbitrary hardware and software stack configurations. This research effort has been initiated by Dr Rafael Ferreira da Silva.
