A Model for Linking Vocational Education and Industry.
Thomas, Hollie B.
A developmental research activity was undertaken to create and field test a systematic process designed to assist vocational educators to form linkages with business and industry. The literature was synthesized to ascertain what has been learned about the linkage process and coordination theory and has served as a basis for writing a manual for practitioners. A process of field reading of the document produced was used to determine its suitability for the intended purpose. The major headings/elements in the model included (1) prelinkage activities, (2) methods of establishing linkage arrangements, (3) procedures for developing linkage plans, (4) procedures for implementing linkage plans, (5) the evaluation of linkage activities, and (6) recycling the linkage process.
