Research Seminar Series for Training Instructional Leaders in Developing and Utilizing Research. Final Report.
Elswick, Donald E.
Three 3-day seminars on ways to utilize educational research were held in 1966 and 1967 for a selected sample of 60 educational leaders representing educational agencies, organizations, and teacher training institutions in Kentucky. Topics included research activities related to the research competencies of the participants, the research needs of the school districts represented, and the performance roles of the participants. Instruction was focused on the research process, elementary measurement and statistical methods, problem solving, and the use of research findings in the classroom. Aspects of preliminary planning, promotion, format, content, and materials of the seminars are described, and the series is evaluated with respect to both strengths and weaknesses. Appendices include publicity items for the series, a listing of participants, activity schedules for the three seminars, and evaluation reports. (JK)
