A Model, Case Study, and Implementation Guide for the Linkage of Vocational Education Programs in Public Post-Secondary Institutions and Business, Industry, and Labor. A Monograph.
Banathy, Bela H.; And Others
To aid vocational educators in establishing interorganizational linkage and coordination with business, industry, and labor with the goal of improving instructional, learning, and work experience arrangements for their students, this monograph provides three products of a project to design and implement a model for program linkage and coordination. (An executive summary of the project is provided. The final report is available as CE 024 329.) Section 1 describes and defines linkage concepts and presents a generic model for linkage. Section 2 consists of a case study of a public postsecondary education linkage program involving the Community College Centers of the San Francisco Community College District, the Presbyterian Hospital in San Francisco, and the Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development. The study relates the activities of that program to the processes outlined in the model. (A companion monograph concerned with linkage of private institutions with business, industry, and labor is available as CE U24 327.) Section 3 includes an implementation guide to linkage followed by three linkage phases explicated in the model: (1) prelinkage activity, (2) linkage for the design of coordinated arrangements, and (3) formalized coordinated arrangements. This guide also contains a supplementary guide to evaluation. (Author/YLB)
