Preparation for Midskilled Work and Continuous Learning in Nine Community College Occupational Programs
Torraco, Richard J.
Community College Review, v35 n3 p208-236 2008
This study examines student learning experiences in nine occupational education programs at two Midwestern community colleges. Interviews with 39 program graduates and 10 of their supervisors provided information about the features of the occupational programs that were most beneficial for job preparation, those that were least beneficial for job preparation, and the extent to which the occupational programs prepared students to keep learning on their own after graduation. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
