Adapting Germany's apprenticeship model

Thomas Lichtenberger describes the value of Germany's apprenticeship model and suggests that it has merit as a possible model for the U.S.A. However, he recommends that those interested in the model adapt it to different educational and cultural contexts. This is such a great example of how transfer and adaptation of best practices across nations can benefit everyone and it demonstrates the premise of Enhancing Student Learning and Development in Cross-Border Higher Education (Robert & Komives, 2016) that all use of educational practices across borders needs to be carefully analyzed and modified in order to be effective.
