Arkansas Educational Research Development Project. Final Report.
Chamberlin, Gary D.
The purpose of this project was to stimulate the incidence and develop the quality of educational research by faculty members in higher education institutions in Arkansas through individual small project grants, intensive institutional educational research development programs, and project development grants. Activities were grouped into 4 areas. The first activity was to provide small grants to individual faculty members to conduct educational research projects. The second was to conduct educational research development programs at institutions to assist them in establishing organizational structures on the campus that were conducive to faculty research activities and to provide small grants on a matching basis to establish faculty research funds. Project development grants were made to institutions to assist in developing programs for significant research, research-related, or instructional programs of an institution-wide magnitude. Related activities were consulting assistance and proposal review by the Project Steering Committee, a reporting conference where faculty members could report the results of their studies to their colleagues, and a publication consisting of the final reports of the individual research projects that was circulated throughout the state.
