A Research Training Project in Science Education Sponsored by the National Association for Research in Science Teaching, Final Report.
National Association for Research in Science Teaching.
The National Association for Research in Science Teaching sponsored a three-day research training program in Chicago, November 11-14, 1969. Supported by a grant from the U.S. Office of Education, the program was designed to improve the research competence of individuals involved with the training of future researchers. Fifty-two participants received training during the three-day program. Participants were primarily college and university professors involved in training future research workers. Training sessions were of two kinds: work sessions were led by leaders in specific research areas; problem sessions were led by senior participants for the purpose of examining ways in which skills taught in work sessions could be applied to specific research problems in science education. Evaluation by the session leaders and the participants indicated that the program was successful in imparting new research competencies and suggesting promising areas for future research. The conclusion was that similar training programs should be held in the future, with some modifications indicated in the evaluation material. (Author/RR)
