Industry Fellows

The Industry Fellows model involves a community college or university faculty member and a practicing industry professional (the industry fellow) in the joint curriculum review, planning and delivery of a course related to the professional's domain of expertise. Working together exploits what each does best. The faculty member provides a broad, theoretical, understanding of the discipline, while the industry fellow brings knowledge gained from professional practice within particular settings. The faculty member retains full responsibility for all academic aspects of the course: planning and writing the syllabus, developing the assignments and examinations, and assigning grades. The professional works with the faculty member in reviewing the course curriculum, joins the faculty member in the classroom on a regular basisregularly as a co-lecturer, interacts directly with the students, and evaluates a sample of the student work on an advisory basis.
