Experiential Education Policy Guidelines. Research and Development Series No. 160.
Miguel, Richard J.
Sixteen guideline recommendations developed by an experiential education advisory panel are presented. Policy guidelines are intended for use in developing experiential education programs. Each issue is briefly delineated; major points that were offered for the panel's consideration are highlighted. The issue statements concern the following areas: learner objectives, site selection, evaluation, structure for learning, diversity of experiences, identification of learners, access to various employment levels, program expansion, commitment to programs, worker protection, legal requirements, paid experiences, academic credit, employment credit, preparation of educational personnel, and preparation of workplace personnel. Immediately following each issue statement is the panel's guideline recommendation including the rationale, safeguard, and potential benefits. For example, the first recommendation is that experiential education goals should be translated into specific learner objectives and should be stated in terms that reflect shared understanding among all participants.
