Business-Industry-Labor Linkages: A Handbook for Improving Personnel Development Programs. Handbook Section 6. Site Visits: Conducting Business, Industry, and Labor Site Visits.
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 sixth section deals with the use of site visit experiences for promoting vocational teacher education department linkages with the private sector. (Site visits, as defined here, encompass all organized trips/tours to business, industry, and labor or other institutional sites. They can involve students, inservice teachers, and faculty and have as their main goal the achievement of educational objectives.) Although the guidelines for planning and implementing site visits are intended for use by faculty members of vocational teacher education departments, the materials are considered easily adaptable for use by vocational educators at postsecondary and secondary levels. An introduction outlines the whole handbook and lists behavioral objectives for this section. Basic activities common to most site visit 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. (JT)
