Refining the Concept of Collaboration in Career Education. Monographs on Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This monograph represents a collaborative attempt to contribute to the definition and understanding of career education. The monograph begins with a conceptual view of career education as a collaborative community effort. The concepts themselves have been derived from interactions with over 200 persons selected as (1) philosophical leaders in the career education movement and (2) individuals representing a variety of community organizations holding potential for contributing to the career education efforts in selected communities across the nation. The second portion of this document is devoted primarily to the thoughts of twenty-four individuals, each from a particular kind of community organization coupled with selected community career education coordinators. These thoughts are summarized under the following categories: (1) Determining What Needs to Be Done in Career Education Collaborative Efforts; (2) Who Is Responsible for Initiating Collaborative Efforts in Career Education?; (3) Career Education and Economic Education: Should They Join Together?; (4) What Should Be the Composition of a Community Collaborative Council?; (5) What Kinds of Issues Should Be Considered by Community Collaborative Councils?; (6) Should There Be a Separate Council for Vocational Education and Another for Career Education?; (7) How Can a Community Collaborative Career Education Effort be Sustained?; and (8) How Can an Effective Public Relations Effort for Career Education Be Conducted? (The thoughts and ideas included in this monograph were gathered from a series of mini-conferences reported in ERIC documents CE 020 110-111.) (BM)
