Internship, Leadership and the Advanced Degree in Vocational-Technical Education at Rutgers. Educational Information Series. Monograph Number 1.
House, Elaine W.
The Department of Vocational-Technical Education at Rutgers officially came into being in 1963. An internship program was developed as an integralcomponent of the doctoral program, with the approval of members of a symposium assigned the task of determining the purpose for an internship in vocational-technical education. On the basis of an evaluation, it was concluded that the internship has fulfilled three of its four objectives: the internship was related to the field of specialization; the work setting was relatively, if not completely, unfamiliar; and the intern functioned as professional, observer, and student. It was too soon to evaluate the success of the fourth objective--to serve as a realistic transition from past to future employment--since most of the interns have yet to graduate from the program. An appendix containing guidelines for the internship and one containing sample memoranda of understanding complete the booklet. (AG)
