An Assessment of Factors Related to the Diffusion Strategy for Simulation Training Materials.
McCutcheon, James Randall
This study was prompted by the lack of a well developed strategy for the diffusion of simulation training materials developed by the Center for Vocational and Technical Education at the Ohio State University for use in vocational leadership development programs. Specifically, the study sought to: (1) describe the strategy employed to diffuse the three simulation packages, (2) describe the characteristics of the workshop participants who were prepared to be trainers and diffusers of the materials, and (3) assess the relationship between selected demographic and attitudinal factors and the stage of plans which the participants developed for utilizing and diffusing the simulation materials. The strategy employed to diffuse materials was aimed at creating a widespread diffusion capability by using a "trainer of trainers" strategy. The tactics utilized were: (1) initial awareness, (2) personal letter followup, (3) mailing of workshop announcements and applications, (4) selection and notification of participants, (5) planning and conducting workshops, (6) telephone followup of trainers, and (7) distribution of materials. Evaluative outcomes are included as are detailed procedural efforts. (Author/SN)
