Building Models for the Linkage and Coordination of Vocational Education at Public and Private Post-Secondary Schools and Business, Industry, and Labor. Final Report.
Banathy, Bela H.; And Others
The Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development (FWL) conducted a project which focused on the design and validation of models for the linkage and coordination of vocational education at public and private postsecondary institutions with business, industry, and labor. The general procedure followed was to adapt organizational linkage and coordination models derived from an analysis of relevant research and literature. A major portion of the project facilitated the development of a linkage program between the medical assistant program of the Community College Centers of the San Francisco Community College District and a local hospital. Simultaneously, project staff abstracted from the experience the principles and concepts relevant to the design of the public postsecondary linkage model. (A detailed description of this experience is available separately as CE 024 328. An iplementation guide is included.) Another portion of the project designed a private postsecondary model as part of a coordinated research program of the FWL and the International Institute of Food Industries. (A detailed description is available as CE 024 327.) (Project materials and questionnaires are appended.) (YLB)
