Active learning and respecting each individual as an adult is necessary.  The context of the information presented should meet the goals of the class as well as the goals of the student.

With any lecture, it is important to know your audience.  The same holds true when instructing students.  Every class is filled with a diverse group of individuals with backgrounds that are exstremely different.  I agree with the idea of using group study to divide the diverse population (experienced versus the less experienced) so that each member could share their experiences with each other, their point of view, and transfer knowledge.

Internships are contractural relationships that have pre-determined objectives that are required to be met.  While in an intern status, the intern would need to document thier hours and ensure that the arrangement is adequate (from their perspective) to meet their objective requirements.  At the same time, the supervisor should be monitoring the progress of the intern throught the intern phase through visits, projects, and presentations.  This enhances the learning experience and establishes a portfolio going forward.

Internships require a great deal of responsibility as they are similar to preceptorships.  It provides people with the opportunity to learn the company or industry.  It also requires an great deal of supervision while the enrollees are learning.
