Integrating Corporate Competence with Real Cases into Higher Education Curriculum
Keywords:off campus teaching approach, corporate competence, company case
Industrial competence and real business cases can be great attributes to higher education curriculum. For engineering higher education, there is a need for these attributes, not only to enrich the curriculum, but also to reduce the gap between theories and practices. An innovative teaching approach is integrating these attributes into off campus industrial lectures conducted during company visits. This paper writes about implementing and learning experiences on such off campus teaching approach at Ã˜stfold University College (HIOF). The paper documented students´ surveys, feedback and reflections on their off campus industrial lectures, and stated great learning outcomes through real company cases.
