The Report of a Developmental Project Guidelines Conference (Minneapolis, June 13-15, 1968).
Moss, Jerome Jr., Ed.; And Others
Major purposes of the conference were to help educators develop a concept of the developmental process and to provide mutual learning among the 10 participants. Answers to two questions were sought: "What is an educational development project?" and "How should one go about planning or conducting educational development projects?" These papers were presented. "The Economic Evaluation of Development Projects in Education" by Ernst W. Stromsdorfer discusses basic principles of design which allow economic evaluation of development projects. "Some Decision Points and Alternatives in Developmental Curricula" by Hulda Grobman suggests 18 considerations on this topic. "A Perspective of Developmental Projects" by John D. McNeil reviews guidelines for the organization and operation of developmental projects. "The Relationship of R&D to Educational Improvement: An Output-Oriented Model" by Hendrik D. Gideonse contrasts research and development projects to educational development projects and presents a graphic model of the differences. A model of the developmental project process is included.
