Business-Industry-Labor Linkages: A Handbook for Improving Personnel Development Programs. Handbook Section 5. Workshops: Involving Business, Industry, and Labor through Workshop Programs.
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 fifth section is designed to promote vocational teacher education department linkages with the private sector through the use of workshops. (Workshops is defined broadly to include such activities as seminars, conferences, and institutes.) Focus is on the organization and management of workshops as an effective method for professional development. An introduction outlines the whole handbook and lists behavioral objectives for this section. Basic activities common to most workshop planning are described as a model approach. Suggested alternative forms and procedures are then 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. (This handbook and related ones are considered easily adaptable for use by vocational educators at postsecondary and secondary levels.) (JT)
