But for Me It Wouldn't Work: Implications of Experiential Education Policy Guidelines. Information Series No. 165.
Rose, Marcia, Comp.; And Others
A conference is reported in which experiential education practitioners addressed the utility and acceptability of the policy guidelines for work oriented experiential education developed by a national advisory panel of management, labor, education, and community representatives. The first part of the report contains the full text of the five presentations and eight panel discussions and the second part includes summaries of the invited practitioners' assessment of the guidelines along with suggestions and recommendations for their implementation. The following issues are dealt with in relationship to work-oriented experiential education: 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, and preparation of educational and workplace personnel.
