Employee Training for Productivity: Report of a 1980 Assembly on Industry-Education Cooperation.
Yarrington, Roger, Ed.
Four background papers prepared for an assembly on industry/education cooperation and a summary of discussions and recommendations which came out of the assembly are contained in this report. After Henry Halsted's introduction to the report and to the theme of the relationship of industry and education, Herbert E. Striner's paper, "The Joint Role of Industry and Education in Human Resource Development," is presented. Mr. Striner discusses current approaches to vocational competence in Germany, England, and Japan and their relevance to the United States. Next, Craig D. Musick, in a paper entitled "What Employees Need in Training and How to Promote Cooperation between the American Society for Training and Development, the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges, and the American Vocational Association," suggests teaching about the free enterprise system, providing environment training, strengthening basic skills, and underscoring work ethics. In "Community Colleges and Industry: A Stronger Partnership for Human Resource Development," Don C. Garrison recalls that vocational competence was a major educational goal in 1918 and asserts that it is still a challenge today. He focuses on what education offers industry and what community colleges need from industry. The Assembly report concludes the paper. (AYC)
