Abstract
While team teaching has its difficulties and is used relatively infrequently, research suggests potential benefits. An innovative team teaching approach was designed where faculty and industry professionals coordinate instruction and are in the classroom at the same time. Students associated this approach with greater depth of knowledge and a richer experience. There are costs associated with this team teaching approach, however the benefits to faculty in the form of enthusiasm, experience, and engagement transfers, combined with the value from incorporating industry, suggest that in the right circumstances team teaching is a viable and valuable format.
