Business-Industry-Labor Linkages: A Handbook for Improving Personnel Development Programs. Handbook Section 2. Advisory Committees: Utilizing Business, Industry, Labor Advisory Committees.
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 second section is designed to promote the use of advisory committees to foster such linkages between teacher education departments and 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 planning and utilizing advisory committees are described as a model approach. Suggested alternative forms and procedures are presented to aid departments in developing plans that are unique to their own situation. A chapter on administrative details deals with the investigation and establishment of policies and procedures and contains a checklist of planning steps. Worksheets are provided to focus attention on gathering information, organizing details, and defining department objectives that are critical to involving business, industry, and labor representatives on advisory committees.
