ARTICULATION OF RESOURCES FOR RESEARCH UTILIZATION.
BURCHINAL, LEE G.
AS A PREFACE TO A PANEL DISCUSSION, THE AUTHOR SPEAKS OF THE DEVELOPMENT IN RECENT YEARS OF A MULTILEVEL SET OF RESOURCES IN EDUCATION WHICH MAY PROVIDE A BASIS FOR BUILDING PROGRAMS THAT CAN FOSTER ADOPTION OF NEW EDUCATIONAL IDEAS AND PRACTICES. HE CALLS ATTENTION TO THE ALREADY INSTITUTED NATIONAL PROGRAMS AND CENTERS THAT PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH AND INFORMATION DISSEMINATION, INCLUDING 20 REGIONAL EDUCATIONAL LABORATORIES, 11 RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CENTERS, AND 14 INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS CENTERS, THE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES INFORMATION CENTER (ERIC), THE SCHOOL RESEARCH INFORMATION SERVICES (SRIS), AND THE EDUCATIONAL PRODUCTS INFORMATION EXCHANGE (EPIE). THE AUTHOR PRESENTS FOR FUTURE PROGRAMS FIVE LINES OF GENERAL DEVELOPMENT THAT WOULD ACT IN SUPPORT OF A NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL NETWORK--(1) A MULTILEVEL COMMUNICATION NETWORK BASED ON SPECIALIZED INFORMATION PROCESSING AND TRANSFERRING ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE BOUND TOGETHER BY FUNCTIONAL LINKAGES, (2) ARTICULATION OF THE MUTUALLY DEPENDENT ROLES OF "IN-HOUSE" INFORMATION PROCESSORS AND "FIELD-ORIENTED" CHANGE AGENTS, (3) DEVELOPMENT OF RESEARCH PROGRAMS THAT CAN PROVIDE GUIDANCE FOR INTEGRATING INFORMATION SYSTEMS THEORY WITH THEORETICAL FORMULATIONS OF DISCIPLINES RELEVANT TO UNDERSTANDING THE CHANGE PROCESS, (4) DEVELOPMENT OF NECESSARY TRAINING PROGRAMS, TRAINING AIDS, AND OPERATIONAL MANUALS TO PROVIDE THE SKILLS NEEDED BY INDIVIDUALS NOW ENGAGED IN CHANGE-FACILITATING ROLES, AND (5) DEVELOPMENT OF A COMMUNITY OF INTEREST FOR SUSTAINED WORK TOWARD ARTICULATION OF RESEARCH, TRAINING, AND OPERATIONAL PROGRAMS RELATED TO CHANGE. AMPLIFICATION OF THESE GENERAL GUIDELINES INCLUDES COMMENTS ON MAINTENANCE AND ACQUISITION OF DOCUMENTS, LOCAL AND REGIONAL CENTERS AS WELL AS A NATIONAL NETWORK, AND THE INTEGRATION OF ALL SYSTEMS WHICH CAN PROVIDE REQUESTED INFORMATION ON EITHER A LOCAL OR NATIONAL LEVEL.
