The Role of the Public School Supervisor in the Dissemination of Educational Research.
Hinkle, Dennis E.; Washenberger, Diane D.
This discussion deals with a new role for the public school instructional supervisor. This new role has generally been referred to as that of a disseminator of research results. In actuality, it would go beyond the role of an informal/formal disseminator. The requirements for skills in research/evaluation methodology are apparent, as is the ability to develop and direct formal in-service training programs and to prepare appropriate dissemination documents that would present research findings in an easy-to-read and concise format. With these new responsibilities, the instructional supervisor would indeed assume the role of an instructional leader in the school division. Another important result of assuming these new roles would be the bridging of the gap between the educational researchers and the practitioners. Bridging this gap is the key to a more effective relationship between the educational researcher and the practitioner and is considered a most necessary step in attempting to achieve the real goal of education--the best possible educational experience for today's youth.
