Toward a Reconceptualization of Knowledge Utilization in Education. Volume 4. Research Memoranda. Final Report.
Thayer, Lee; And Others
The remaining volumes of the final report (4-8) all contain research memoranda written in the form of essays by research staff and theorists with expertise. The essays deal with operational strategies and philosophical and theoretical considerations of the dissemination and utilization of knowledge. Volume four includes six research memoranda. Research memorandum number one, by Lee Thayer, provides a brief overview of the study. In the second and third memorandum some thoughts and questions on information systems in the Office of Education and on the Puritan desire to control are given by Tom Deats. Hanno Hardt, in the fourth memorandum, views the impact of technology on knowledge utilization in Western Europe, focusing on the development of education and democracy as social, cultural, and political concepts in technology-oriented societies. Lee Thayer discusses in detail some philosophical and theoretical considerations underlying the Center's work on communication, knowledge utilization, and the educational enterprise in the fifth memorandum. The final memorandum in this volume, written by Robert E. Skenes, reviews literature pertaining to teachers' communicative characteristics.
