Educational Research Development and Evaluation: A Training Curriculum.
Campbell, Patricia B.; And Others
The curriculum for this 2-week workshop on educational research development and evaluation is designed to increase participants' skills in project development and proposal writing and increase their knowledge of research and evaluation methods. Geared toward adult professionals who are skilled and motivated, the curriculum helps participants to develop and to refine a proposal for educational research development and evaluation. The curriculum is sequentially arranged, and each section is presented with the same format, beginning with an overview of the information covered, "tips," and possible sources of problems. The curriculum's eight sections deal with: (1) the review process, proposal guidelines, and a simulated review process; (2) idea development and refinement, statement of needs, literature reviews, and proposal writing tips; (3) research problem statements, measurement considerations, sampling and design; (4) types of evaluation, threats to validity, and evaluation models; (5) task analysis, time lines, person loading charts, staffing and budgeting; (6) promotion and retention, visibility, and mentoring; (7) influencing policy and sources of private and public funding; and (8) participant reporting and evaluation. Following the section introduction, objectives, and sample schedule, a separate outline is given for each lecture and activity in the section. For each lecture, a content outline includes the major points to be covered. Also included are a list of possible handouts, and, if appropriate, further references. (JD)
