Teaching Teachers about Supply Chain Management to Influence Students' Career and Education Choices
Gardner, Leslie L.
Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education, v11 n2 p185-192 Apr 2013
Since teachers are influential in high school students' career choices, enabling high school teachers to introduce educational and career opportunities in supply chain management is a viable strategy for reaching high school students about these opportunities. This article presents a pilot program of supply chain workshops to educate high school and middle school teachers and guidance counselors about the opportunities in supply chain management and logistics and to enable them to integrate supply chain concepts into their teaching. These workshops incorporate a mix of slideshows to introduce concepts, hands-on activities to illustrate how the concepts work, and field trips and guest speakers to demonstrate concepts in real world applications.
