Warmbrod, Catharine P.; And Others
This book contains a descriptive listing of 219 exemplary programs and practices existing nationally that involve the sharing concept between postsecondary occupational education and industry. Its purpose is to identify models and guidelines for sharing facilities, equipment, materials, and personnel for mutual educational and financial benefit. The list of 219 programs is organized by state, with the colleges having exemplary programs within each state listed in alphabetical order. Name and position of contact person(s) and a brief description of the exemplary program or practice are provided. Forty-eight of these programs and practices are highlighted with fuller descriptions, containing information on the activity, implementation procedures, contributions by industry and college, benefits to industry and college, and critical elements for success. They are organized by type of activity: (1) apprenticeship training, (2) Comprehensive Employment and Training Act programs, (3) community-wide collaboration, (4) community-based education, (5) contract services for industry, (6) cooperative education and field experiences, (7) economic development services, (8) faculty "return to industry" programs, (9) program development sharing, and (10) specialized programs. Guidelines for industry-education cooperation are presented. Appendixes include a report of the needs-sensing workshop that identified this research and development topic, the survey questionnaire that provided information for this book, and a program index.
