Adams, Keith K.; Whiteman, Richard E.
This report describes an in-service industry exchange project conducted by Cerritos College during which five faculty members returned to the work place to update their skills and gather information useful in curriculum development. First, the project's objectives are delineated, covering: (1) formation of the Project Advisory Committee and Business/Industry Committee; (2) faculty participation; (3) negotiation of the exchange program with industry; (4) participation incentives; (5) plan development; (6) procedures to develop and implement the program; (7) the role of industry; and (8) promotion of gender equity and disadvantaged and handicapped services. Next, the general procedures for implementing and completing the in-service program are detailed. The bulk of the report consists of project reports by the five participating faculty members. Each report contains a project overview and sets forth purposes, objectives, plans, conclusions, and recommendations related to the improvement of the college's programs in four fields: administration of justice; automotive collision repair; electronics; and nursing. Report appendices include a project timeline, a sample letter, meeting agenda and minutes, and the objectives for each of the program areas. (LAL)
