Toward a Reconceptualization of Knowledge Utilization in Education. Volume 1. Final Report.
Thayer, Lee; And Others
The overall purpose of this study (comprised in volumes 1 through 8) was to provide the National Center for Educational Communication and others with similar functions conceptual-theoretical tools for dissemination and utilization of knowledge. Varied methods included reviewing related literature, consulting theorists in this problem area, writing research memoranda, and trying out promising ideas. Findings show that there is little direct use by practitioners of the vast banks of educational research findings. Volume I of the report sets forth the conclusions and recommendations to emerge from substantive inquiry into the nature of the problem of knowledge utilization in education. The first part of the document offers a summary statement toward a reconceptualization of knowledge utilization in education. Program strategy recommendations for action within institutionalized education and policy recommendations for agencies like NCEC to devote more attention to provide learning opportunities outside institutionalized education are offered. Also included in this volume are critiques of two scholars who offer their reactions to the report and recommendations. Related documents are ED 061 468, and SO 005 889 through SO 005 896.
