Future Research Strategies to Improve RDD&E Training Programs.
Hood, Paul D.
This report highlights some strategic needs of research, development, dissemination, and evaluation training programs. The premises, facts, and trends in educational research and development are reviewed. Research options for RDD&E are described under three general categories: descriptive, prescriptive, and operational research. Descriptive research focuses on needed information about the current state of affairs. Prescriptive research provides information on what could or should be. Operational research provides the policy, management and administrative tools to plan and manage RDD&E training more efficiently. Results of the study indicated the need for a) more accurate and detailed information about current training requirements, b) improvement of training methodology and process, and c) methods to accomplish timely renewal and improvement of practice. A 4-item bibliography is included. (MJM)
