The article presents an experience of simulation-based training developed in 2014 with students enrolled in the master programme in Management of Educational Services at the University of Padova. The training programme, devoted to the development of competences in the field of human resources management, has been integrated with vLeader, an online simulator designed for the improvement of leadership competences. As part of the evaluation of the programme’s effectiveness, a test for measuring personality traits according to the Big Five model and a learning journal to support reflection on simulation have been proposed to the students. Data collected with the two tools were crossed through an automated textual analysis of the learning journal contents in order to explore connections between reflections prompted by learning journals and personality traits of students involved.
