Organizational Structures and Operational Practices of Selected Educational R & D Centers and Educational Laboratories and of Selected Centers, Laboratories, and Institutes on One University Campus.
Lins, L. Joseph
This study investigates and analyzes the organizational structures, institutional ties, and operational practices of selected extramurally-supported centers, laboratories, and institutes. The primary goal is to provide one type of data, some experiences, and judgments on the basis of which an assessment might be made of the conditions of the Wisconsin Research and Development Center for Cognitive Learning. The report contains a brief history of the R & D movement in education and describes the purposes of the various education R & D centers and laboratories. Five education R & D centers, three education laboratories, and 12 other R & D centers on the University of Wisconsin campus were surveyed. The survey covered funding and the effects of funding assurance on the operation of the centers, administrative arrangements, academic vs. nonacademic organization and responsibilities, and staffing. Copies of survey letters and questions are included in the appendix. (Author/DN)
