Hutchins, C. L.; Dunning, Barbara A.
This project established seven regional demonstration centers for the teacher training products known as minicourses, designed by the Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development. The goals of these centers were identified as increased user awareness, the establishment of an environment in which educators could evaluate the minicourses, the linkage of prospective users with appropriate minicourse agencies, and the effective demonstration of the impact a research and development project could be capable of producing in an actual school setting. This report contains the results of the project, largely in statistical form. Descriptions of various minicourse programs and activities are given. The names and addresses of persons and institutions who participated in the research are listed, and the results of the minicourse evaluation exercises are both narrated and tabulated. Appended are copies of letters requesting proposals, final reports from centers, and a copy of the telephone survey instrument. Many forms and incidental tables, statistics, and resources are also included. (LH)
