Dopp, Joan; Nicholson, Athyleen
Representatives from education, business, industry, labor, and government met in a 3-phase Cooperative Education Workshop to establish common agreement on criteria and improvement of cooperative vocational education in community colleges of the state. With emphasis given to feasibility studies, training agreements, legal implications, and philosophical views, this manual was developed as an aid to administrators and teacher coordinators interested in implementing, evaluating, or developing cooperative programs. Major sections of the manual are: (1) What Is Cooperative Vocational Education, (2) Steps In Planning, (3) Responsibilities Of The Instructor-Coordinator, (4) Responsibilities Of The Employer, (5) Legal Responsibilities, (6) Initiation and Maintenance of Good Public Relations, and (7) Evaluation Of A Cooperative Vocational Education Program. Also included are several sample work forms used by the coordinator. (JS)
