A Study of Media for Communicating Research Information.
Young, Vivienne; And Others
Prompted by dissatisfaction with its information procedures the research department of the Board of Education for Toronto undertook a research project to find new and effective ways of disseminating information about their studies. It was felt that the research information was of little use if it did not reach the interested consumer. Five methods of presentation were prepared: two annotated bibliographies, recorded telephone descriptions, vinyl records, and a photographic poster. Along with a medium each recipient got a brief questionnaire and an order form. Each medium went to approximately one-fifth of the study population--teachers, principals, consultants, department heads, and administrators. The results of the survey revealed that the different types of dissemination media produce various results for different audiences. (Author/SJ)
