Toward a Reconceptualization of Knowledge Utilization in Education. Volume 7. Research Memoranda. Final Report.
Thayer, Lee; And Others
Two Research Memoranda, numbers 15 and 16, are contained in this volume. (The general nature of the memoranda are described and related documents listed in SO 005 892). The first essay by Daniel E. Costello, entitled "Communication, Knowledge and the Educator as a Problem-Namer", views the problem of knowledge formation and utilization within education systems as resting on problem-naming and problem solving capabilities of individuals within the system. How these capabilities are developed in and through communication is explored. In the second report, Robert B. Miller discusses "The Gulf Between Research and Practice in Education", examining conservatism and public attitudes toward innovation and the adoption of ideas, problems in research content and communication, the process of research and development, and identifying various components to help bridge the gap between research and practice in education.
