Gold, Gerard G.
This module on community collaboration is intended to help guidance personnel in a variety of educational and agency settings increase their knowledge and skills in linking community-based comprehensive career guidance programs with education and employment initiatives to assist youth and adults. The module is one of a series of competency-based guidance program training packages focusing upon specific professional and paraprofessional competencies of guidance personnel. Patterned after the Performance Based Teacher Education Modules developed at the National Center for Research in Vocational Education, the modules teach competencies for planning, supporting, implementing, operating, and evaluating guidance programs. The module follows a standard format that includes the following components: (1) an introduction that gives the user an overview of the purposes and content of the module; (2) a section that provides information about the module goal and a list of the competencies covered in the module; (3) a reading containing information on each of the competencies; (4) learning experiences consisting of an individual activity, individual feedback, and a group activity; (5) evaluation techniques that can be used to measure what workshop participants need prior to training and what they have accomplished through training; and (6) an annotated list of resources. Competencies and learning experiences cover inventorying community organizations, promoting collaboration, developing rationales and action plans, and managing, monitoring, and assessing collaboration.
