Consortium Approach to Stimulating Educational Research. Final Report.
Grupe, Fritz H.
The four colleges participating in the Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley initiated a project to stimulate the involvement of their faculty in the development of research, development, and evaluation projects on a scale comparable to that at larger institutions. The specific objectives were as follows: a) to organize and implement mechanisms and procedures to stimulate and promote the preparation and execution of proposals for educational research and development programs; b) to develop and support a program of seminars, workshops, and demonstrations devoted to communicating the basic and advanced methodology of educational research and research administration; c) to encourage faculty participation in such projects; and d) to initiate intercollege research, development, and evaluation projects that facilitate the cooperative use of existing specializations, facilities, programs, and research talents. To achieve these objectives, a project director and a consortium committee worked with interested faculty and staff in formulating research designs, program revisions, curriculum reforms, and evaluation procedures. The committee organized a series of approximately 26 seminars, workshops, conferences, and demonstrations dealing with research design, evaluation, research on college students, and innovative approaches to education.
