Abstract

The aim of this article is to explore the features of industrial-education collaboration through inservice attachment training programme for polytechnics' lectures in Malaysia. The programme was initiated as a call for lifelong learning due to information overload, the advent of high-functionality systems, and a climate of rapid technological change. These have created new problems and challenges for education and training in producing quality and employable technical graduates. The analysis is based on a survey conducted on 157 polytechnics lecturers and 140 employers using questionnaires. The results show the agreement on all the features of the collaboration which grounded in the work based learning theories. However in the existing context, there are several features salient to lifelong learning need to be improved for more effective experiential learning collaboration. Several suggestions are presented.
