The workshop was opened with an ice-breaking session followed by two simulations – The Food Truck Challenges and Managing Markets and Segments. Following the presentations and debrief, the workshop was closed for the day. The second day started with group work on Teaching Plan, Team Presentations, Simulations Teaching (as an instructor) followed by open house questions on using simulations as pedagogy, challenges, evaluations, preparations, etc. The workshop sessions were both informative and inspirational, and can enable teachers to engage the students with real life management situations that require them to make critical decisions while challenging ingrained assumptions. Simulations allow the students to acquire knowledge through experimentations and explore the impact of multiple variables within each simulated business scenario. It is an innovative pedagogy for Management students.
