Katz, Lilian G.
This report outlines a set of research and development efforts by means of which the National Institute of Education might proceed to support and encourage a type of schooling called Open Education. Part I of the report, Research and Development for the Support of Open-Informal Education, is comprised of five sections: I. Introduction; II. The Problem of Terminology; III. The Problem of Definition; IV. Tentative Definition of Open Education; and V. Rationale for Open Education. Part II, Central Issues for the Implementation of Open Education, contains two sections: I. Introduction; and II. Research and Development Topics. These Research and Development Topics are: 1. Attributes and Behavior of Teachers Related to Effective Open Informal Teaching; 2. Authority, Control and Permissiveness in Teachers; 3. Determinants of Teacher Behavior; 4. Teacher Selection and Training; and 5. Approaches to Teacher Training. Problems related to open informal education are seen to be those involving administration, leadership style, school-community relations, curriculum materials, and evaluation. An appendix compares teacher-directed learning and teacher-facilitated learning. (DB)
