|Title:||Linking Cooperative Education and Education for Sustainability: A New Direction for Cooperative Education?||Contributor(s):||Taylor, Subhashni (author) ; Taylor, Neil (author)||Publication Date:||2003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3620||Abstract:||In this article the authors propose that co-op practitioners and researchers need to constantly re-examine the practice and future of cooperative education. Co-op currently introduces large numbers of graduates into the business and manufacturing employment sectors. A number of authors have argued that co-op graduates rapidly advance in companies and assume middle and senior management roles. These co-op graduates and their non-co-op counterparts become the business and commercial leaders of the future. Here we argue that one beneficial future direction for co-op could be in the area of graduate understanding about education for sustainability (EfS). This paper begins with a description of the principles that underpin concepts for both EfS and cooperative education and examines three propositions as to how cooperative education might act as a vehicle for delivering aspects of EfS.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Asia-Pacific Journal of Cooperative Education, 4(1), p. 1-8||Publisher:||New Zealand Association for Cooperative Education (NZACE)||Place of Publication:||Waikato, New Zealand||ISSN:||1175-2882||Field of Research (FOR):||130399 Specialist Studies in Education not elsewhere classified||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||930501 Education and Training Systems Policies and Development||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.apjce.org/volume_4/volume_4_1_1_8.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 274
