Business-Industry-Labor Linkages: A Handbook for Improving Personnel Development Programs. Handbook Section 7. Resource Persons: Involving Resource Persons from 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 seventh section focuses on the various ways private sector resource persons may be effectively selected and utilized by vocational teacher education institutions. (Resource persons, as defined here, encompass persons from any geographical area who may have specific aptitudes, knowledge, or skills available to groups.) Although the guidelines for utilizing resource persons 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 planning for the use of resource persons 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)
