Ryder, Kenneth G.; Wilson, James W.
A description of contemporary cooperative education shows how programs, policies, and practices have developed and changed to fit today's educational and work environment. Specific benefits for students, academic institutions, and employers are examined. Following a foreword by Ralph W. Tyler, four chapters in part one (the development of contemporary cooperative education) are presented: "Social and Educational Roots" (Kenneth G. Ryder); "Factors Influencing Recent Growth and Expansion" (Roy L. Wooldridge); "Contemporary Trends in the United States" (James W. Wilson); and "Comparing Programs Worldwide" (Solveig M. Turner and Antoinette Frederick). Part two (effective approaches to program management and operation) includes eight chapters: "Planning, Implementing, and Assessing Programs" (Harry N. Heinemann); "Documenting Benefits and Developing Campus and Community Support" (Paul E. Dube and Alice F. Korngold); "Achieving Cost Efficiency and Program Effectiveness" (James W. Wilson); "Creating Information Systems for Effective Management and Evaluation" (James W. Varty); "Legal Rights and Obligations of Students, Employers, and Institutions" (Michael B. Goldstein and Peter C. Wolk); "The Employer's Role in Program Development" (Bruce T. Evans); "Enhancing the Student's Cooperative Education Experience" (Patricia T. van der Vorm); and "Overseas Program Development and International Student Placement" (Robert E. Vozzella and Robert R. Tillman). Part three (assessing outcomes, benefits, and opportunities for growth) offers three chapters: "What Students Gain from Cooperative Education" (James W. Wilson); "The Impact of Cooperative Education on Employers and Graduates" (Sylvia J. Brown); "Meeting the Challenges and Opportunities of the Next Decade" (Kenneth G. Ryder).
