RFP 70-12: A Design of New Patterns To Train Research, Development, Demonstration/Dissemination, and Evaluation Personnel in Education. Vol. 1: Design of the Training Program. Final Report.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
In May 1970, USOE requested new training designs for research, development, diffusion, and evaluation personnel in education, and a consortium of interviews conducted on a nationwide basis in 21 selected institutions engaged in one or more of these activities, and the results confirmed extensive national and regional needs for trained RDD&E personnel. A review of the literature revealed a high demand but limited supply of competent personnel in the following skill areas: conceptualizing issues and processes; designing techniques; setting objectives; measuring and evaluating outcomes; implementing outcomes; and identifying and incorporating attitudes, values, and practices of minority groups. A systems approach utilizing individualized instruction was selected as the best method of training with modularized packages of material stressing the conceptualization of specific skills and a structured internship experience supervised by the training agencies. The development of this training system would take 4 years. In the first year the modular packages would be designed and tested, in the second year packages would be combined into subsystems and used to train individuals, in the third year the entire system would be tested as a whole unit, and in the fourth year the system would be installed at various agencies throughout the nation.
