A Need for Articulation: Sponsored Experiential Learning--El Paso Community Based Agencies and El Paso Community College.
Reyes, Roberto
El Paso Community College (Texas), a task force school in the Cooperative Assessment of Experiential Learning project, is experimenting with a sponsored experiential learning system. An important requisite for a valid sponsored experiential learning program is an articulation agreement between El Paso Community based agencies and the college. The purpose of this research study was to measure the response of students, agency supervisors, and community college faculty involved in the experiential learning program concerning problems in communication and cooperation among all parties. A semi-structured interview questionnaire instrument was distributed to 15 members from each of the three components involved in the program. Responses were received and processed for all 45 subjects. The results of the survey strongly favored increased communication and cooperation between agency supervisors and faculty. Agency supervisors and faculty deviated in their degree of intensity toward how and to what extent articulation between the community based agencies and the community college could be achieved. Recommendations based on survey responses are included, and the survey instrument and a list of the community based agencies participating in the program are appended. (Author/AH)
