TRAINING FOR RESEARCH UTILIZATION.
MILES, MATTHEW B.
PLANNING IS NEEDED TO BEST UTILIZE EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH. EFFORT IS REQUIRED FOR THE MASTERY OF RESEARCH UTILIZATION PROCESSES FOR TWO BASIC POPULATIONS--(1) THE UTILIZATION SPECIALIST SITED IN FIELD SETTINGS AND (2) THE NEW RESEARCHER AS HE MOVES THROUGH HIS GRADUATE TRAINING. THE FOLLOWING RESEARCH-RELATED SPECIALIST ROLES ARE PRESENTLY UNDERCONCEPTUALIZED AND UNDERMANNED--(1) THE EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT SPECIALIST, (2) THE FIELD TESTER, (3) THE QUALITY CONTROL MAN (ASSESSOR OF INSTALLED EDUCATIONAL PRACTICES), (4) THE CHANGE AGENT OR CATALYST, AND (5) THE COUNTY AGENT (STYLED AFTER AGRICULTURAL LINKAGE). GRADUATE STUDENTS ARE NOT BEING PROPERLY TRAINED IN SUCH ROLE BEHAVIORS AS (1) CONSTRUCTION OF DATA-COLLECTION TOOLS FOR PRACTITIONER USE, (2) SITUATION-FOCUSED INFORMATION RETRIEVAL, (3) DIAGNOSTIC RESEARCH AND FEEDBACK, (4) SELF-STUDY FACILITATION (RESEARCH BY THE EDUCATOR ON HIS OWN SYSTEM), (5) TRAINING FOR RESEARCH UTILIZATION, AND (6) FACILITATION OF THE DIFFUSION OF PRACTICES (DISSEMINATION OF INNOVATION). GRADUATE EDUCATION IN THE FUTURE WILL HAVE TO INVOLVE FIELD RESEARCH AND CLEAR CONCEPTUALIZATION OF RESEARCH UTILIZATION PROCESSES WITHIN EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR THE AERA/PDK JOINT STUDY GROUP ON THE TRAINING OF RESEARCH WORKERS FOR EDUCATION. (GB)
