Research Into Education in Australia, 1972. AACRDE Report, Number 1.
Radford, W.C.; McDowell, R.
This document reports a study which dealt principally with research activity under way in the education departments of the Commonwealth and the states, in the university schools of education and departments of psychology, in the schools of education of the colleges of advanced education, in the teachers colleges, and in the special units of the universities, colleges of advanced education, and teachers colleges. It touches cursorily on research in teachers organizations and the Catholic Education Offices, research into the economics of education and adult education, and some aspects of research into the sociology of education. It reports views held on certain issues in training and careers by heads of divisions and staffs in the departments of state, and by heads and staffs of the schools of education in the universities and colleges of advanced education. It discusses the kinds of preparation for their present work received by many of those engaged in research and development; and some of the judgments they make both about their own preparation and those who will be joining their ranks as qualified workers. It reports also opinions about the need for some relatively new kinds of workers in research and development, about the areas of work which should have priority in the future and about some of the topics in those areas to which immediate attention might be directed.
