Cooperative Education in Community Colleges of Arizona.
Arizona State Board of Directors for Junior Colleges, Phoenix.
This document presents the results of a project to improve and clarify the Cooperative Education curricula offered by the community colleges of Arizona. The first section overviews cooperative education by discussing and/or defining concepts related or inherent to cooperative education: relevancy, skills application and skills development, alternate and parallel plans, coordination, employment/training, student participation, and advantages to students, employers, and the college. A glossary is divided into terms related to cooperative education and terms not related to cooperative education. The definitions given are an attempt at a common terminology for Arizona Community Colleges. The next part presents these exhibits: a list of minimum requirements to qualify for cooperative education funding and blank and sample application forms for approval of programs in cooperative education. A final section summarizes innovative methods for implementing cooperative education at five Arizona community colleges: Maricopa, Mohave, Pima, Navajo, and Cochise Community College Districts. Emphases include procedures for assigning semester credit hours, methods for phasing on-the-job work experience with a related vocational class, and student qualifications for entering the program.
