PARTICIPANT FOLLOWUP STUDY--THE PERT LECTURES, A CASE STUDY IN KNOWLEDGE DISSEMINATION AND UTILIZATION, VOLUME 2.
COOK, DESMOND L.
A FOLLOWUP STUDY WAS CONDUCTED OF THE PERT (PROGRAM EVALUATION AND REVIEW TECHNIQUE) LECTURES, CONDUCTED IN 1965 TO INFORM THE EDUCATIONAL COMMUNITY OF PERT AND TO ENCOURAGE ITS USE. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE SENT TO 397 LECTURE PARTICIPANTS TO DETERMINE THE DEGREE OF UTILIZATION OF THE INFORMATION PRESENTED AND TO SEEK INFORMATION ON THE DISSEMINATION PROCESS IN EDUCATION. THE QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON (1) THE NATURE OF THE AUDIENCE, (2) PLANS FOR UTILIZATION, (3) QUALITY OF THE MESSAGE, AND (4) PREFERENCES FOR DISSEMINATION ACTIVITIES. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE RETURNED BY 294 RESPONDENTS. SEVERAL CONCLUSIONS WERE DEVELOPED, ONE OF WHICH WAS THAT THE AUDIENCE CONSISTED OF PERSONS WHO ATTENDED OUT OF CURIOSITY AND WHOSE PROFESSIONAL INTERESTS DID NOT RESIDE EXCLUSIVELY IN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT. SUGGESTED WERE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT THE BACKGROUND OF FUTURE PARTICIPANTS BE ASSESSED AND THAT MORE WORKSHOP ACTIVITIES BE INCLUDED IN FUTURE PROGRAMS. (REFER TO ED 003 379 FOR ANOTHER REPORT ON THE PERT LECTURES.) (RS)
