the most practical idea
apprehend/incorporate the knowledge obtain during college in a more accurate manner for improving his job performance.
the most disruptive idea
my favorite idea
if we could get transferred the experiences of our parents, teachers, bosses, etc. and automatically incorporate as our own, many things would no longer be a problem for any body! Each generation would be more and more competent, emotionally and intellectually because nobody would begin to learn from scratch.
But the question is, we would become semi-gods? would we become a perfect race? and more important that anything....
if the accompanying process of universities did not end when the person graduates but just after a year of being inserted in the labor market, the transition probably would not be so difficult for many students, it would generate more value for both companies as for individuals. I think that educational institutions are challenged to rethink their models to this new era.
if students achieve a balance between study and work during college, so as not to delay the studies, or disconnect from the reality of work, is the most practical way of effectively and usefully incorporate the knowledge gained in college and have a smooth transition after graduation.
Summer Internships are an ideal tool to accomplish this.
