An Experiential Approach to Benchmarking Curriculum
Grandzol, John R.; Grandzol, Christian J.
Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education, v9 n3 p401-409 Sep 2011
Continuous curriculum improvement derives from a variety of perspectives, opportunities, and approaches. In this brief, we describe a process that facilitated student participation in curriculum development. We took our Supply Chain Management students to a regional conference affiliated with APICS and had them assess their knowledge readiness compared to professional standards. We used these data to identify our curriculum's strengths and weaknesses and to encourage faculty collaboration to adjust it accordingly. Our approach can be generalized to any academic discipline.
