Title: A multi-institutional approach to delivering shared curricula for developing a next-generation energy workforce

In this study, we consider collaborative power systems education through the FEEDER consortium. To increase students' access to power engineering educational content, the consortium of seven universities was formed. A framework is presented to characterize different collaborative education activities among the universities. Three of these approaches of collaborative educational activities are presented and discussed. These include 1) cross-institutional blended courses ("MS-MD''); 2) cross-institutional distance courses ("SS-MD''); and 3) single-site special experiential courses and concentrated on-site programs available to students across consortium institutions ("MS-SD''). As a result, this paper presents the advantages and disadvantages of each approach.
