A Model for the Linkage of Vocational Education at Post-Secondary Private Schools and Industry, Business, and Labor. A Research Monograph.
Banathy, Bela H.; Duwe, Axel
This monograph describes a program designed to (1) link private postsecondary vocational education with business, industry, labor, and other societal sectors and (2) establish interorganizational coordination that is beneficial to all participants. (In a companion monograph, available as CE 024 328, linkage and interorganizational cooperative arrangements are reported relevant to public postsecondary education.) The linkage program was carried out through a project conducted by the Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development and the International Institute of Food Industries. The monograph presents first an executive summary of the project, followed by a characterization of the situational context of the linkage programs (chapter 1). (The final report of the project is available as CE 024 329.) Chapter 2 describes the linkage model. In chapter 3 the linkage is portrayed in the form of a case study. Findings are summarized in chapter 4. Appendixes include guidelines for program design; first, second, and final drafts of the curriculum for the department of culinary arts; a facilities planning guide; and issues that have emerged and are expected to emerge, in this format: issue, motivation, carriers, and proposals.
