A Post-Doctoral Training Program in Instructional Research (September 1, 1966-August 31, 1967). Final Report.
Schalock, H. Del
A 1-year postdoctoral training program in instructional research was conceived and implemented by the staff of Teaching Research, a Division of the Oregon State System of Higher Education. Five educational administrators were selected as resident fellows in the program designed to increase the number of educational researchers who can address themselves to relevant questions and pursue them empirically. The instructional components of the program were (1) involvement in an ongoing research program which related to the personal interests of the resident, (2) a technical seminar which dealt with the philoso"hy of science, the theory and operations involved in measurement, design, analysis, etc., (3) a professional seminar which dealt with the leading research and theoretical developments in education across the nation, and (4) preparation of a research proposal which could be submitted for funding. Evaluations by staff and residents indicated that the major strengths of the program lay in the opportunities for individualized training and in the productive colleague relationship which existed between staff and residents. Residents will continue to be engaged in research activities at their parent institutions; 4 of the 5 research proposals prepared were accepted for funding. Appended are publicity materials, outline of program content, entrance test, summaries of residents' backgrounds, and their individual program appraisals. (JS)
