Fifty Views of Cooperative Education.
Hunt, Donald C.
A series of opinions on many facets of the administration of cooperative education programming is presented. Part One reviews the philosophy of cooperative education including Lawrence Canjar's "convert" speech, a comparison of experiential and cooperative education, and discussions of parallel programs. In Part Two employers discuss cooperative education. Representatives of such companies as the Ford Motor Company, Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, and the Chrysler Corporation examine why employers participate in cooperative education, and representatives from such companies as the Detroit Edison Company and the J. L. Hudson Company explain how employers select cooperative students. Recruiting employers and a comparison of students' and employers' needs are the topics of the third section. Administration of cooperative education programs is considered in the fourth part, including some thoughts on cooperative program management, some administrative pitfalls, coordinator responsibilities, a look at liberal arts and cooperative education, and a cooperative education in community colleges. Part Five explores the issue of academic credit for cooperative training experience, and faculty and faculty relations are described in Part Six. The final part surveys trends, wisdom, and information in articles on the evaluation of cooperative education, placement by computer, federal funding, the Cooperative Education Association, the history of the National Commission for Cooperative Education, and the use of veterans' benefits with cooperative education.
