The Virtual Organizations are a unique and innovative set of learning tools specifically designed to teach and assess the problem solving skills necessary for success in the twenty-first century. They bring theory to life by allowing the student to take the theories learned in class and apply them in realistic settings with realistic data to solve real-world problems. To solve the problem, the students will have to analyze the information within the company and in the Virtual Organizations environment, and the student will have access to all information - even sensitive and confidential information. In this Best Practices session, the presenter will demonstrate the use of Virtual Organizations as incorporated in curriculum for institutions of higher education.
