Litchfield, Carolyn G.
As part of a project to improve and expand the training opportunities available in vocational education programs through cooperative education, a series of media programs was developed. These programs were designed to aid coordinators in making suitable placement and improving the job orientation and training of student learners and to influence employer and student trainee views and expectations regarding cooperative education. This booklet contains the scripts for four slide/ tape presentations. The first script, "What's It All About?" identifies the purpose of the cooperative program and stresses the benefits to student, the community, and employers to be gained through cooperative education. The second script, "The Student's Role in Cooperative Vocational Education," is based on research regarding employers' views of the hiring process and their expectations of employees. The third slide script, "The Employer's Role in Cooperative Vocational Education," addresses the opportunities and benefits that employers have as a result of participating in a program designed to help students obtain occupational training related to their career objectives. Finally, "The Teacher Coordinator's Role in Cooperative Vocational Education" is designed to assist the teacher-coordinator in organizing and operating cooperative programs. It addresses the tasks performed by the teacher-coordinator and examines techniques for correlating the student's job activities with in-school related instruction. A user's guide completes the script package. (KC)
