Industry-Education-Labor Collaboration: An Active Guide for Collaborative Councils.
Based on actual experiences of 150 collaborative councils (including work-education and industry-education-labor councils), this handbook presents issues, questions, and examples that should be considered by anyone initiating collaboration between education organizations and the private sector. Chapter 1 overviews some community problem-solving that involves collaborative councils in action. Chapter 2 describes a collaborative council, what it does, and how it relates to other community organizations. Appropriate leadership is the focus of chapter 3. In chapter 4 motivators for involvement in collaboration are discussed for the various sectors. Topics covered in chapter 5 on council organization include issues to be addressed, approaches in addressing goals and objectives, size of area to be served, structure, incorporation, and need for a paid staff. Chapter 6 discusses funding sources and fundraising responsibility. Suggestions for sustaining involvement are provided in chapter 7. Chapter 8, a special chapter for rural councils, addresses common problems and solutions. Chapter 9 focuses on self-evaluation and contains some basic questions. Appendixes include sample profiles of seven local collaborative councils, list of handbooks and related resources, funding information sources, national resource organizations, and list of newsletters.
