The Emerging Research Worker and His Needs. Report of the Convocation on Educational Research. (7th, Nov. 13-15, 1966).
New York State Univ. System, Albany.; Educational Research Association of New York State.
This report contains 73 addresses and papers presented at a convocation on the place of educational research in the larger social setting, and, more specifically, on the role that the educational researcher can and will play. Major presentations focus on the topics of educational research and the accumulation of knowledge, curriculum modifications for the emerging research worker, needs of the researcher, and the question of whether the researcher shall be a computer scientist or a Renaissance man. Other talks consider such matters as research methodology, taxonomy, and the training of educational research workers. Papers presenting highlights of recent research deal with educational administration, Bayesian statistics, and curriculum and teaching. Symposia presentations include discussion of complex educational media, needed research in teacher education, and Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. Focusing on specific knowledge in the field, the 55 reports of current research (some of them abstracts) deal with such subjects as programed instruction, research related to disadvantaged children, concept formation, instructional mode, reading, teacher tenure laws, research methodology, and studies of high school and college student attitudes and personality characteristics.
