Initial Development of a Research Oriented Consortium. Final Report.
Acker, Roy Dean
This study explored methods of improving the educational research capabilities of six institutions of higher education in the Appalachian region of Kentucky. A priori it was felt that interinstitutional cooperation would result in a more effective use of limited research resources. After six conferences, a cooperative program was drawn up outlining some ideas for further study by a proposed research consortium from the six institutions. Some of the major ideas that merited further study by this consortium included developing a computer network, sharing faculty resources, designing a remedial program to allow for a consistent group of college-bound students, upgrading the preparation of high school teachers, and improving the articulation between 2- and 4-year colleges. Unfortunately, the cancellation of funds for sustaining some of the proposed programs has seriously hampered further development. (LN)
