Exploring the Dynamics of Globalization: Supply Chain Vulnerability to Natural Disasters
Kalafsky, Ronald V.; Conner, Neil
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v39 n1 p173-181 2015
Global supply chains play an increasingly important role in the economy and should therefore be addressed within geography coursework, especially given concerns that geographers have not fully explored various angles of globalization. This article explores the use of an online case study on supply chains and their vulnerability to natural disasters in two entry-level, undergraduate courses. Results from a post-study survey suggest that students increasingly prefer online sources of information and that online case studies can foster a greater understanding of global economic processes such as supply chains and how these can be influenced by natural phenomena at different scales.
