Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v87 n8 p20-24 Nov-Dec 2012
Partnering is a critical element of the career and technical education (CTE) system. Instructors build effective student relationships that enhance the classroom experience. Administrators partner with their staff to build educational teams who, in turn, help build student teams. Partnering is evident in any successful organization that requires multiple people to achieve its objectives. Building effective partnerships outside the educational system with state agencies, legislators, employers and economic development alliances is especially critical. Effective and sustainable partnerships begin by establishing a common vision and shared goals. They end with collaborative processes and programs that produce successful and proven results. This article focuses on some of the proven results of these collaborations taking place in the Oklahoma CTE system.
