Internships for Leaders in Demonstration and Dissemination. Final Report.
Simmons, Wilber D.
During its 3 years of operation, the internships for Leaders in Dissemination Program trained 15 advanced graduate students, five per year, in techniques of evaluating dissemination efforts and developing procedures and materials for dissemination. Program participants were required to have a masters degree and a minimum of 3 years teaching experience. The academic portion of the program consisted of 8 hours of graduate work in an 8-week summer institute. Each intern was then assigned to a school district, the Regional U.S. Office of Education, or special project. The intern, in cooperation with his supervisor and the project director, planned a program of activities which would provide experience in evaluating and developing new procedures for dissemination activities. As a result of experience with this program, it is recommended that a formal program be developed leading to a Ph.D. in educational dissemination and communications. Summer institutes for administrators are also recommended. (Appendixes contain a list of participating interns; a list of publications, questionnaires, and slide-tape presentations developed by the interns; and an outline of a model Ph.D. program.) (RT)
