The Educational Information Consultant: Skills in Disseminating Educational Information, A Report on the Development and Operational Validation of Three Alternative Forms of a Transportable Instructional System. Final Report.
Banathy, Bela H.; And Others
The development and field testing of an instructional product for the training of educational personnel in dissemination and utilization of research and development information is reported. A new role, that of the Educational Information consultant (EIC), is described. A modular training program, built around the five major processes delineated for that role, is detailed. The development and field testing of three alternative delivery forms of the training, a course form, an institute form, and a learning team form are recounted. Field testing indicated the training program to be effective in imparting basic skills, knowledge, and attitudes to function in the EIC role. The course and institute forms of the training were found to be fully operational, self-contained, transportable training packages. Additional developmental work to bring the learning team form to operational readiness is suggested. (Author)
