Miller, Christine. (2001) "Technology mediated learning experience for MBA students participating in a transnational team project". In: UNSPECIFIED, Madison, Wisconsin. (Unpublished)
This paper describes a technology-mediated project designed to bring together groups of graduate level students to participate in an intensive business simulation. Both groups of students are enrolled in MBA programs: one group at Wayne State University School of Business in Detroit, Michigan and the other at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. A prototype of the project was conducted as a directed study with six-member student teams from each university in the winter 2000 term, following which it was agreed that the exercise had a great deal of value and should be continued. The project was conducted as a formal class for the first time in the winter 2001 semester; consequently, this paper describes a work in process. The project is multi-dimensional from both the design perspective, and from the perspective of learning objectives. Although we describe the simulation/experiential learning component of the course, the paper will focus on the aspect of technology utilization in both teaching and learning and cross-cultural dimensions of the project.
