An Analysis of Formal Programs for the Training of Educational Research, Development, and Dissemination Personnel.
Roaden, Arliss L.
This research review synthesizes the findings of eight studies (1965-1969) of educational research, development, and dissemination (RD&D) training programs. The review has five sections: 1) purposes and components of RD&D training programs; 2) curriculums of programs other than doctoral level, i.e., post-doctoral programs, sub-doctoral graduate programs, undergraduate research training programs, short-term institutes and special training project, and program development grants; 3) institutional settings for RD&D training, including lists of top research and researcher producing institutions; 4) effects of present training programs, and 5) prognosis for effectiveness of future training programs. Section 4 concludes that the curtailment of Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title IV programs will render them ineffective in meeting manpower needs; that the graduate training programs hold the most promise for increasing research manpower but lack the necessary planning for making significant inroads on basic research needs and needs for new D&D roles; that little impact has been felt in changing curriculums or objectives of training programs since most of them replicate or are superimposed on existing training programs; and that graduate awards were made to institutions already in the RD&D training business. Section 5 lists eight specific suggestions for modification of plans for the future. (JS)
