Discipline boundaries of science and technology education are inevitable. Often, such barriers are an obstacle to industry-based learning leading to preventable complexities. Industry-based learning is a complex scenario, rather than conventional learning, leading to the study of liquid learning, which is a timely concept to investigate learning without boundaries. Liquid learning consists of accountability, expectations and driven by outcomes with different learning choices. Liquid learning is a significant phenomenon requiring awareness in the science and technology education. This paper aims to discuss some practical issues when designing industry-based learning without boundaries. A case study approach is reviewed and presented.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
