Procedures for Conducting an Apprenticeship Work-Study Program.
Millstein, Eugene J.; And Others
This manual describes procedures for conducting a program to train personnel for educational research and development (R & D). It is intended as a guide for any institution planning to administer such a training program. The program may be utilized in several ways. They are: (1) for training various types of personnel for educational R & D; (2) as an independent training program; (3) for inservice training; (4) as an adjunct to regular academic training; and (5) in helping to meet the economic conversion problem, that is, preparing unemployed professionals for new fields. The manual is divided into four areas. They are: (1) a program overview which includes program objectives, rationale, and description; (2) the instructional model including the curriculum outline, instructional system, and apprenticeship; (3) recruitment and general program management considerations, that is, publicity and application and selection procedures; and (4) job placement activities focusing on job hunting strategies and relevant federal programs. The manual is based on a 1971 pilot program experience that cross-trained physical scientists for work in educational R & D. (Author)
