Career Education Linking Agents: Perspectives and Roles.
Richards, Edgar L.
Designed to give career education linkers an organizing perspective from which to view their career education work, this half-day workshop contains a total of eleven activities dealing with directions to the trainer; an introduction to linking; and roles, activities, and skills of the linker. Individual activity topics are an overview of the workshop, an introduction to linking, the definition of a linker, areas of linker involvement, tools of the linker, boundary spanning, linker roles, linker activities, tying roles and activities together in problem solving, skills required of linkers, and self-assessment. Each activity contains a statement of its purpose, its estimated time, an explanation of its format, and specific implementation activities. Thirteen activity handouts are provided. These include a workshop agenda, lists of knowledge resources, case studies, a linker self-assessment, lists of linker skills and roles, school improvement activities, a definition of a linker, and examples of linker roles. (Five other career education workshops covering career education concepts and practices, program design, program improvement, opinion surveys, and school improvement processes are available separately through ERIC--see note.)
