Developing an Academic Logistics Course Using the Action Research Approach

Irit Talmor, Arie Reshef


Academic institutions that offer practical programs face several challenges, such as teaching heterogeneous classes, maintaining relevant and up-to-date syllabi, and competing with other institutions. These challenges are relevant to academic logistics programs as well. One way to tackle these challenges is through continuous improvement of teaching methods and course content. This article presents a process of developing and improving an introductory academic course in management and logistics for a Bachelor of Arts (BA) program using the action research approach. The study’s results encourage curriculum developers in academic institutions to view the curriculum and its creation as an ongoing process, and to explore varied ways to teach it. Our findings also highlight the value of a student-centred approach to academic teaching and curricula development that calls for acute awareness of potential variation in students' experience and abilities.
