Fifty Views of Cooperative Education.
Hunt, Donald C.
Presenting a diverse collection of beliefs, the readings cover many facets of the administration of cooperative education programming. Opinions of 31 experts are offered, drawing from leading cooperative education colleges and from major business, industrial and governmental organizations participating in cooperative education. The document consists of the summarizations of presentations at several one-week institutes on Administrative Training in Cooperative Education conducted between 1972 and 1974 by the Midwest Center for Cooperative Education at the University of Detroit. Following an overview of the field and its philosophy is a collection of employer's views on why employers participate in cooperative education and how employers select cooperative students. In discussing the school and the employer, topics considered include recruiting employers and comparison of students' and employers' needs. Some thoughts on cooperative program management, coordinator responsibilities, non-technical disciplines in cooperative education, forms, and community colleges are discussed in relation to the administration of cooperative education programs. Further areas of interest treated are: academic credit for cooperative training experiences; faculty and public relations; minority students; and Federal funding. (MW)
