Employer/Community Resources: Site Recruitment, Employer Instructor Development, Site Utilization. Handbooks for Experience-Based Career Education.
Anderson, Nancy; And Others
This is one of a set of five handbooks compiled by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory which describes the processes for planning and operating a total Experience-Based Career Education (EBCE) program. Processes and material are those developed by the original EBCE model--Community Experiences in Career Education or (CE)2. The area of operations to which this handbook is devoted is recruiting, developing, and using private and public sector sites to support student learning and career development. Site Recruitment, the first of three sections, details procedures for involving employers and other community site personnel in the EBCE program. Employer Instructor Development describes how participating site personnel are prepared for EBCE responsibilities. It focuses on planning and conducting development sessions. Site Utilization deals with the use of employer and community volunteers and sites to deliver student learning. Topics include learning site analysis, site maintenance, and information exchange. Each section has three basic parts: (1) preview, including definition of the EBCE element discussed, purposes and underlying assumptions of that element, and people involved in delivering it; (2) steps to follow; and (3) narrative section explaining process behind each step. Extensive appendixes contain supplementary materials; an index to all the handbooks is also provided. (YLB)
