Steps toward a Technology for the Diffusion of Innovations.
Stolz, Stephanie B.
Research-based technologies for solving problems currently exist but are not being widely implemented. Although user variables, program effectiveness, and political considerations have been documented as correlates of implementation, general non-implementation of the technology still exists, due to a lack of methods. A technology of dissemination needs to be developed to acquaint practitioners, decision makers, and the general public with existing programs. A technology of knowledge diffusion and utilization is needed for research-based innovation, psychological technology, educational technology, consultant advice, and professional advice. With an effective technology of knowledge diffusion and utilization, society would have tools to enable it to improve itself in a systematic fashion. (Author/BL)
