Stewart, Betsy; And Others
Based upon the experiences of Cerritos College, this guide for educational agencies at all levels, presents a step-by-step explanation of the development, planning, implementation, and evaluation of an education/guidance/industry exchange program. Step 1 (Identify Subject Area) involved the selection of computer-assisted drafting (CAD) for Cerritos College's inservice education program because of existing cooperation and articulation agreements and high demand. Step 2 (Identify Businesses/Industries) consisted of targeting Bechtel Power Corporation and Rockwell International and conducting planning meetings with firm representatives. Step 3 (Identify Key Participants) involved sending letters to district superintendents to ask them to identify key personnel and to request release time for participants. As step 4 (Invite Workshop Participants), letters of invitation were sent to 40 drafting instructors, vocational counselors, key administrators from the unified school districts and the college, and representatives from special needs areas (e.g., women, handicapped, and disadvantaged). Step 5 (Conduct Workshop) consisted of presentations on the use of CAD at Bechtel and Rockwell and demonstrations of the firms' and college's equipment. Step 6 (Send Acknowledgements) and step 7 (Conduct Evaluation) involved sending certificates of completion and evaluation forms to participants and letters of appreciation to speakers and hosts. Appendices provide sample memos, letters, certificates, and other related materials. (LL)
