Enhance Learning through Field Exposure

Having been in school for over a few decades as a teacher and student makes me experience and see that schools actually bring their students to various commercial establishments of electronics, textile, food processing, or steel drum among others and industry exposures including apprenticeships or immersion to enforce new learning and / or enhance academic contents.

Thus, the Commission on Higher Education forces colleges and universities to include field apprenticeship to enhance learning. This shall give way to first - hand learning that students can't possibly have in a typical classroom arrangement.

And, now that summer is just around the corner, I am quite sure that most schools shall hold their field apprenticeship where most classes are off. I just wish that students shall indeed make the most of their field exposures.
