A Content-Process Model for Training Educational R&D Practitioner, Diffuser, and Developer Teams. Final Report.
Miskel, Cecil G.
This document presents a pilot training program which developed, diffused, and evaluated the application of a selected group of research and development (R&D) techniques for planning and initiating change in the public schools. The training model resulted from suggestions of an interdisciplinary development team at the University of Kansas. The two innovative strategies used in the model were the content and process phases. The content phase was composed of 11 content skill areas integrated into a Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System (PPBS). Competence in these conceptual and technological skills was assumed to be an integral part in the development of the R&D program. The process phase ensured the application and refinement of the content phase for the public school setting by implementing three stages: a) inputs or resources, b) activities, and c) outputs or products. A detailed description of the pilot test for the model is included in the report along with data for the model's evaluation and suggestions for refinement. The appendixes present a) problem-solving plans and procedures, b) a flow chart for the model used in the Paola School District, c) a plan for coordinating curricular activities in the northwestern attendance area, d) a flow chart and opinionnaires developed by the Career Education Task Team, and e) evaluation instruments.
