Work-Based Learning: A Manual.
Idaho State Div. of Vocational Education, Boise.
This manual is a guide to local partnership councils as they plan and design work-based learning experiences for credit. Chapter 1 provides an overview of work-based learning as part of vocational education. Chapter 2 describes a variety of work-based learning experiences, including established secondary vocational program work-based learning components and a new program called individualized occupational training. Each description includes a list of distinguishing characteristics. Chapter 3 describes work-based learning experience at the technical college level, including off-campus examples--apprenticeships, clinical experiences, cooperative education, and internships/practicums/field experiences--and an on-campus variation, campus-based enterprises. Chapter 4 discusses work-based learning as a component of an educational program. Chapter 5 describes how to design an effective work-based learning activity using these criteria: assessment, staffing, identifying worksites, equal access, and budgeting. Chapter 6 identifies activities involved in the implementation and management of work-based learning, including community relations, job/worksite visit, worksite mentor orientation, training agreements and plans, student schedule, student worksite interviews and orientations, issuing grades, and maintaining a worksite training directory. Chapter 7 explains legal considerations of work-based learning. Appendixes include a list of 52 organizational, print, and software resources; definitions; and sample forms. (YLB)
