CEWIL Canada, formerly CAFCE, presents a comprehensive resource for those planning and implementing co-operative education programs. The Co-operative Education Manual includes background information on the philosophy and concept of co-operative education as an educational strategy and elements of co-operative education programs that build quality into program delivery. Many of these elements form the criteria for national accreditation standards.
Examples have been drawn from a range of co-operative education programs across Canada to present an integrated model of co-operative education.
The Manual is designed to serve as a starting point for institutions considering implementing a post-secondary co-operative education program. It is an invaluable tool for training new staff and using as a reference for co-operative education expansion discussions within your institution. This "how to" manual is the definitive resource for co-op practitioners in Canada.
1st Edition: 1988
