Co-op faculty Pat Linn, Adam Howard, and Eric Miller have signed a book contract with Lawrence Erlbaum to edit a book tentatively entitled Handbook for Research on Cooperative Education and Internships. The book will include about 10 chapters; each chapter author will describe an exemplary research study that will be framed with commentary about a particular research design issue. The collective goal is to create a practical guide for educators and employers who may not have research training but who may be under pressure to assess, evaluate, or justify their co-op programs. The book is scheduled to be published in spring, 2002.
