National Research Training Institute for Participants in Consortium Research Development (CORD) Projects (August 20 to September 1, 1967). Final Report.
Hamreus, Dale G.
To facilitate the basic objectives of Consortium Research Development (CORD) projects, a specialized educational research training institute was conducted for 52 college professors engaged in CORD projects. The institute was designed to increase participants' competencies for improving their courses of instruction through research and to enable them to engender educational research activities within their spheres of influence. Flexible programming provided for identification of specific needs and development of individualized programs of study in these competency areas: (1) specifying objectives in behavioral criterion form, (2) task analysis of instructional specifications, (3) instructional systems development, (4) measurement, (5) research design, (6) data analysis, and (7) proposal and report writing. Evaluations indicated that all institute objectives were achieved although it is recommended that diagnostic tests be developed for guiding participants into small group and independent study sessions following large group presentations. Included with the report are the 7 measurements used in pre- and posttesting of research and instructional competencies; appended also are the institute evaluation questionnaire, the schedule, a list of participants, and copies of mailed publicity materials. SELF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS FOR RESEARCH TRAINING, Supporting Document A to this report, is also in the ERIC collection. (JS)
