Experiential Learning: Beyond the Classroom and Connecting with the Industry

Abstract

To address dynamic needs of the industry, student learning must extend beyond the classroom. Considering the packed nature of traditional curriculum and logistics, incorporating new courses is challenging. A model is presented where the desired learning is acquired by engaging students in research partnerships, and without unduly extending the duration of their degree program. The success of this model has been demonstrated over many years by deployment of a variety of solutions for a diverse group of stakeholders, and an ever-growing demand for expansion. A few selected projects are presented in this paper to illustrate the skills acquired by students which include training in state-of-the-art technologies, creative thinking, research publications, and prospects for immediate hiring upon graduation. The benefits to faculty and industrial partners are also highlighted. Finally, the paper presents the challenges encountered which range from space, turnovers, transitioning, data access and perception of shadow IT. The ideas presented are applicable to all emerging areas.
