Establishing Foundations for University/Professional Association Collaboration: The Profession Selection Process.
Queeney, Donna S.; Melander, Jacqueline J.
The selection of professions that became part of the Continuing Professional Education Development Project, a joint research and development effort of The Pennsylvania State University and the Kellogg Foundation, is discussed. In addition to establishing collaboration between the university and the professions, the project sought to develop and implement practice-oriented continuing professional education programs through the application of the Practice Audit Model to six selected professions. The six professions are accounting, architecture, clinical dietetics, clinical psychology, medicine, and nursing. The selection process involved four stages: identification of the professions, acquiring detailed information about the current status and climate for continuing education within each profession, considering the likelihood that the profession and academic base would be able to maintain the programs and relationships developed in the project, and identifying the profession's and the academic base's commitment to the project. A flowchart of the practice Audit Model is included. Appendices include: a checklist of criteria for the professions, a list of criteria used in the selection of project professions, and a lists of responsibilities of team members. (SW)
