A Manual for Coordinators of Cooperative Education.
Seaverns, Charles F., Jr.
This manual was developed with two specific purposes in mind: (1) To present in some detail, information about cooperative education which should serve as a functional guide to those individuals who contemplate becoming a coordinator of cooperative education, and (2) To stimulate the development of more effective coordination techniques by coordinators already engaged in the placement, counseling, and guidance of cooperative education students. Divided into nine chapters, the guide discusses: (1) the rationale of cooperative education, (2) the role of the coordinator, (3) the basic tools used in coordination, (4) strategies for obtaining cooperative jobs, (5) means of preparing students for placement, (6) the placement process, (7) how to conduct a follow-up after placement, (8) strategies for handling student problems, and (9) ingredients of a good training and professional development program. Several calendar designs and a variety of useful report forms are appended as well as selected readings in the field. (Author/SN)
