Resumé

A kind of teaching for active learning has been experimented with at SDU Sønderborg as part of the course Supply Chain Dynamics. In this course the students learn about complex systems, system dynamics as well as supply chain instability and oscillation, the course lecturer invited the author to experiment with novel workshop methods and techniques, where objects are used to illustrate and model business issues (Heinemann et al, 2011, Buur et al, 2013). The idea was to see how students could be engaged in a different and more interactive way to learn about these topics, by assigning the students a task of modeling the dynamics of a firm’s supply chain. Following Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences (1983), it is argued that each learner possesses a unique blend of diverse intelligences, and should therefore empower learners, rather than restrict them to a single modality. Consequently teaching should reflect this diversity by embracing and experimenting with multiple forms, including activation of students by students’ interaction and manipulation with objects.
