New Horizons in Cooperative Education: Project Report [July 1, 1974-June 30, 1975].
San Mateo Community Coll. District, CA.
The cooperative education programs provided by the three community colleges which comprise the San Mateo Community College District (California) offer three alternative plans: (1) Alternate Semester--two students hold one full-time job during the year, each spending one semester on campus and one off campus; (2) Parallel--concurrent part-time work experience and on-campus classwork; (3) New Careers--a career development plan for evening students who hold full-time jobs. The New Horizons in Cooperative Education project was designed to research and develop a number of innovations in cooperative education, including measurable learning objectives on the job, comprehensive liberal arts/vocational programs, improved methods of sharing results, and trends of the future. This report evaluates the effectiveness of the project in terms of 18 factors (student retention, academic success, cost effectiveness, etc.). As a means of providing information about various innovations occurring within this project, a sampling of information is provided throughout the remainder of the report in the form of 11 Progress Indicators. These brief sections provide a closer look at selected New Horizons activities. (NHM)
