Business-Industry-Labor Linkages: A Handbook for Improving Personnel Development Programs. Handbook Section 3. Cooperative Internships: Establishing Cooperative Internship Programs Involving Business, Industry, and Labor.
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 third section is designed to promote the use of the cooperative internship approach to utilizing resources of the private sector. (Cooperative internships, as defined here, encompass the period of time spent in business, industry, or other agencies for the purpose of providing the intern with supervised occupational or professional experiences, with or without a salary.) 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 cooperative internships are described as a model approach. Then 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 investigating and establishing of policies and procedures and contains a checklist of planning steps. (JT)
