West Tennessee Research Development Consortium. Final Report.
Colmey, James W.; Petry, John R.
The West Tennessee Research Development Consortium was formed to increase research potential of Freed-Hardeman College at Henderson and Lane College at Jackson. The Consortium consisted of a proposal and project designed (1) to train in research methodology 1 person on each of the 2 campuses, and (2) to offer concurrently an in-service training program to 8 faculty members in each of the colleges. This document presents an outline of the program including the methodology used and results found. The primary objectives of the program were: (1) to develop research competencies in selected personnel on the campuses of the 2 colleges through a cooperative research venture; (2) to expose the staffs of each of the colleges to an on-going research project while gaining the benefits of an in-service training experience; (3) to demonstrate the importance of research to the developing institutions; (4) to develop curriculum materials that will aid the maintenance quality of instruction in developing institutions through in-service programs; and (5) to study the treatment effects of curriculum packages designed to upgrade the instructional processes in higher education.
