Method Networking (POST-16 STRATEGIES/ SPES-NET)
Description "Networking enables administrators and researchers, who often share an academic educational background, to enter into genuine cooperation with vocational educators and institutions. The aim of such collaboration may be mutual exchange of information or the gathering and generation of new knowledge. Networks are thus created to foster the emergence of socially shared knowledge constructed from individuals' personal experience...

The purpose of networking between vocational and academic/ general education and working life is the enrichment of vocational and academic/ general education programmes through mutual cooperation. Such cooperation may involve various educational establishments and their teachers and students. The starting point is to promote equal esteem for different learning contents. While general education is being incorporated into vocational programmes, it is also worth asking whether academic/ general programmes could in turn be enriched with vocational elements." (Lasonen, 1998a, pp. 17f.)
