On Harnessing R&D To Advance Education.
Whitworth, Fred E.
The role of research and development in education is considered under nine main topics: 1) the need to reach agreement on a working definition and an acceptable classification of types of research; 2) the need for a balanced program requiring specific provisions for speculative and practical research, with school research units to ensure the conversion of theory into practice; 3) the development of speculative or basic research to ensure long term benefits and practical research concerned with products, program, efficiency, and assessment; 4) the development of better communication among researchers and developers throughout Canada and in other countries; 5) the improvement of facilities for training researchers; 6) the development of one or more grant structures to allocate ample funds for research and development; 7) the increase of the proportion of educational funds spent on research and development; 8) increased emphasis on problems in the academic, vocational, professional, and other segments of the education complex, whether in school or not; and 9) increased attention to the role of technology in education to ensure that the right changes will be made and that the new methods will be effective.
