Whittier, Sally, Ed; Miguel, Richard J., Ed.
This audioconference report consists of nine sessions, each featuring a panel of experts who discussed a variety of issues related to collaboration in education and employment. The focus is on practitioners and employers and how they can collaborate to improve the quality of schooling and employment opportunities for secondary- and postsecondary-school youth. Highlights are provided from each of the nine sessions, which addressed these issues: school standards and business expectations--achieving both without compromise; becoming informed about business and the economy--collaboration provides the missing link for educators and students; the do's and don'ts of implementing collaborative programs; cooperative and experiential learning--is it worth the time away from the classroom; preparing for the changing skill demands of the workplace--closing the gap through collaboration; technological skills--how schools and businesses can meet the challenge together; collaboration in job search, guidance, and placement--"win-win" strategies for students and employers; handicapped populations--collaboration equals access and success; and retraining and adult transitions--revitalizing our work force through collaboration. Other contents are background information on the moderators and panelists and a directory of participants. (YLB)
