Cooperative Education in Community Colleges: A Sourcebook for Occupational and General Educators.
Heermann, Berry
The special function of cooperative education in the community college setting is described in this book and procedures that could be used by administrators in operating such a program are outlined. The book has three major divisions. Part One traces the development of cooperative education and its associated philosophies, offers a model for a comprehensive cooperative education program, and examines program potentials and possible pitfalls. Part Two sets forth planning and organizational guidelines, and Part Three explains numerous operational subtleties that are crucial to an effective program, including the important "defined-outcomes" methodology. Part Four contains sample forms for use in a community college cooperative education program. Specifically, the book examines the philosophies of vocational and general cooperative education, the community college institutional setting, the applicability of defined outcomes, the role of the employer, instructor, and coordinator, the selection and development of employers, organizational alternatives, promotion of the program, guidance activities, evaluation and feedback, and other topics critical to the administration of community college cooperative education. A bibliography is included. (Author/KM)
