A Report of a Special Training Institute to Develop Educational Research Personnel (June 13 to August 23, 1966). Final Report.
Saunders, Robert L.; And Others
A 10-week summer institute held at Auburn University in 1966 provided opportunity for short-term but intensive training in educational research for 29 public school administrators. Most of the participants were selected by their school systems as persons who, after completion of the institute, could be assigned research and curriculum development responsibilities. The program utilized a guest-lecture series, classes, films, discussions, tapes and seminars-- all in conjunction with individual research projects later to be implemented by the school systems represented. Content emphases were on (1) curriculum development, (2) problems of educating the culturally deprived, and (3) choice of appropriate techniques for various research problems. Student evaluations of the program revealed general satisfaction along with constructive recommendations. Major weaknesses stemmed from the short time for publicity and participant selection. A follow-up institute for these participants as well as a new institute in 1967 are both recommended. Participants are listed; materials and program schedules are appended. (JS)
