Educational Intensification: A Partnership Between Industry and Academia
We observe that increased interactions between faculty, students, and industrial researchers enrich the student educational experience. These interactions develop a more diverse and inclusive workforce. Our observations indicate more direct, varied, and intentional approaches to academic-industry interactions build stronger partnerships. In this paper, we present examples of what we deem Educational Intensification. We describe Educational Intensification and present novel methods to increase the academia-industrial interaction, including industrially-presented short-courses and faculty sabbaticals in industry.
