Knowledge Production and Utilization in Educational Administration.
Eidell, Terry L., Ed.; Kitchel, Joanne M., Ed.
The seven papers contained in this monograph were presented at the Seventeenth UCEA Career Development Seminar held in Portland, Oregon, October 1967. Some papers view the problems of applying new knowledge to practice quite generally in the context of the broader society while others focus more sharply on strategies for implementing the utilization of knowledge in the context of educational organizations. Launor F. Carter and Norman J. Boyan discuss the general question of knowledge production and utilization in education. Specific roles and techniques which need to be developed are outlined by Egon G. Guba, Ronald G. Havelock, and Sam D. Sieber. Richard Schmuck describes two training event models dealing with the social psychological aspect of transforming behavioral science knowledge into effective practice in educational administration. Finally, Keith Goldhammer presents some thoughts on how preparatory programs should be revamped in light of the need for specialized administrators. (HW)
