An Internship Program for the Training, Exchange, and Transition of Vocational Education and Business, Industry, Agricultural, and Government Personnel. A Pilot Study (July 1, 1970-June 30, 1971). Director's Final Report.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Dept. of Vocational Education.
Briefly described in this document is a pilot project involving 13 internships which were designed to: (1) provide improved leadership training for vocational and technical personnel, (2) provide improved teacher education through full-time, on-the-job experiences in industry, business, or agriculture, (4) initiate an exchange program between vocational and technical education on the one hand and industry, business, and agriculture on the other, and (4) build a handbook of operational guidelines for others interested in developing programs of professional internships in vocational education. The 13 participants, after being carefully selected and prior to placement, received an orientation to the purpose, procedures, responsibilities and functions of the program. Evaluation of the project was enhanced by bi-weekly coordination visits and the use of a daily diary. The program was termed a tremendous success. Included in the appendixes is the Guide for Professional Internships--Vocational Education. (JS)
