Dissemination Strategies and Devices, Part Four, Final Report for Phase I, Rural Shared Services.
Northern Montana Coll., Havre.; Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
Part Four of a four-part report, designed to identify, synthesize, and evaluate shared services research and development efforts throughout the nation, presents a model to disseminate information concerning shared services information to rural educators. The discussion does not prescribe a "best-fit" model but presents several with an expanded outline of one, incorporating the expertise of the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory and the cooperative efforts of contiguous states in a regional area. Recommended is the utilization of existing agencies, such as USOE, state departments of education, colleges and universities, and professional organizations. Also included is a discussion of the available dissemination media and their relative effectiveness and cost. Two basic assumptions were deemed appropriate: (1) that motivation for dissemination of information lies primarily with the desire to implement dissemination procedures, not with testing given procedures, and (2) that financial consideration preclude nationwide dissemination. Related documents are RC 003 404, RC 003 405, and RC 003 406. (DK)
