Integrating Manufacturing, Management and Marketing into International Service LearningFour faculty members from the Manufacturing, Management and Marketing (3M) fields haveoffered a cross-disciplinary and hands-on international service learning course in Spring 2012.There were 20 students enrolled from the college of engineering and college of business. Thecourse was offered with on-ground and on-line components, and it has been managed usingthe Desire2Learn (D2L) and Turnitin course management systems. Faculty members coveredthe 3M topics during the semester and have taken their students to - - University, - for almost20 days for the study-abroad component of the course. Four teams have been formed to workon various service learning projects which have components in design, modeling,manufacturing, marketing, testing and packaging in it. This project has been made availablethrough a grant from the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) of - - University.International Service Learning combines academic studies, volunteer service and full culturalimmersion to give students a deeper, more meaningful study abroad experience. This initiativeprovided the linkage between service learning, cultural immersion and the creation of a globallearning community. The active learning technologies employed was a hybrid model of on-ground traditional classroom sessions supported by D2L and Turnitin with virtual online teamscomprised of students from various majors at - - University. The goal was to simulate PeterSenge’s learning organization model of building a shared vision, team learning, personalmastery, systems thinking and the creation of mental models.Students’ progress on learning to solve problems, think critically and work on teams inculturally diverse settings were evaluated by faculty and external international judgesthroughout every stage of project, ultimately during final presentations. Students were alsoasked to complete a short survey provided by the QEP Director that includes questionsmodeled on several items from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) that relateto critical thinking, real-world problem solving, service learning and service to the community.This paper will report the accomplishments and findings of this project from the manufacturingperspective.
