Report of the Postdoctoral Educational Research Training Program of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences.
Tyler, Ralph W.
Postdoctoral training programs at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences utilize the ongoing activities of the Center for broadening and deepening the educational research competence both of scholars in the field of education and behavioral scientists whose work can contribute significantly to more adequate understanding of educational problems. Of the 50 scholars and scientists participating in the program each year, 4 in 1965-66 and 5 in 1966-67 were supported by Office of Education fellowships. Three were research workers in education; 6 were behavioral scientists who were encouraged to undertake some initial work in educational research. The programs do not assign fellows to courses, tutorial instruction or apprentice activity; they focus, rather, on encouraging scholars to collaborate on studies that fully utilize concepts, methods, and insights of various relevant behavioral sciences. The function of the Center administration is to facilitate the work of each individual, and of seminars and other working groups through providing space, equipment, library services, statistical advice, editorial services, research assistants, stenographic and duplicating services, and consultants as needed. The major portion of this report is a composite of statements by the 9 fellows providing descriptive and evaluative comments on their activities at the Center. (JS)
