In this story, Professor Lohmann discusses the implementation of an online business simulation to create a more engaging and authentic learning context for students, in response to various learning and teaching challenges faced in his course. In addition to online simulation, more authentic pieces of assessment and the fostering of teamwork and collaboration were also incorporated into the course design. Because of these approaches, aviation management students were able to understand that management decisions in one department have implications across the business and its ability to attract passengers and profit.
