The Simulated Workplace initiative transforms the classroom environment into a viable company workplace. The initiative enhances instructional delivery and changes the culture of career and technical education (CTE). It also permits students the opportunity to take ownership of their individual performance as it impacts the overall success of their education. Students will collect evidence of their work within their company and submit annual reports. The reports will show either growth or decline in the company’s net worth. These reports will be used by the students and instructor to determine what adjustments their company needs to make, if any, to improve profitability.
