Business-Industry-Labor Linkages: A Handbook for Improving Personnel Development Programs. Handbook Section 1. Staff Development: Creating a Staff Development Plan for Business, Industry, Labor Involvement.
Dieffenderfer, Richard A.; And Others
One of eight sections of a handbook for use by vocational teacher educators in improving vocational teacher education linkage with business, industry, and labor, this first section focuses on use of staff development programs as a means to increasing faculty interaction with the private sector. Although the guidelines are intended for use by faculty members of vocational teacher education departments, the materials are considered easily adaptable for use by vocational educators at the postsecondary and secondary levels. An introduction outlines the whole handbook and lists behavioral objectives for this section. Basic activities common to most staff development programs are described as a model staff development approach. Then suggested alternative forms and procedures are presented to aid departments in developing plans that are uniqwe to their own situation. Possible study topics for courses or workshops are listed (e.g., business, industry, and labor training techniques and approaches; business, industry, and labor linkages within other university departments). A chapter on administrative details deals with the investigating and establishing of policies and procedures and contains a checklist of planning steps. (JT)
