Guide to Articulation of Programs.
Dunlap, William S.
This handbook is designed to assist area vocational-technical schools and community colleges in their efforts to provide a sequence of continuity for students who choose to continue their education in a similar occupational field. Although originally developed for the field of electronics, the guide is generic in the sense that it will work for programs in any occupational service area. It is also not restricted to use only by area vocational-technical schools and community colleges. The components of the articulation model described in the guide are based on a combination of research of the literature on articulation and through the experience of developing an agreement between two institutions. The guide is divided into nine sections. The first section gives a brief review of the need for articulation. The remaining eight sections deal specifically with the articulation process. Topics include the need for articulation, building a cooperative climate, establishing communications, developing committee assignments, reviewing alternatives, developing an agreement, closing the deal, gaining support, continuing communications, and following up. A bibliography and a list of resources is included in the guide. In the appendix a sample agreement is also included to assist local administrators in the articulation process. (KC)
