In role-play-based learning, the role-play provides the anchor and scaffold for all learning and teaching activities (see Ip, & Linser, 1999; Linser, Naidu, & Ip, 1999). Role-play is widely used as a valuable learning and teaching strategy in social sciences and humanities subjects where very complex processes are prevalent. This learning design comprises the playing out of identified roles by learners which is followed with reflection upon the activity and its analysis in order to focus attention on the expected learning outcomes for the study.
