Utilization of NIE Output.
Rosenau, Fred; And Others
Some of the problems preventing maximum utilization of new research knowledge and products are discussed. A proposed strategy for production, distribution, installation, and utilization includes (1) financing and managing the production of the final product form; (2) selecting strategies for increasing product awareness and user motivation; (3) choosing distribution arrangements and agents; and (4) providing for installation, service, and monitoring. The functions of the development-dissemination-utilization process are described. Four alternative models of relationships between the National Institute of Education (NIE) utilization staff and agents outside NIE are discussed. The documents concludes with guidelines for utilization, such as (1) NIE should avoid building an extensive permanent, centralized utilization staff of its own; (2) where possible, NIE should employ the services of outside agencies; however (3) outside agents should not be used when they will push the costs of NIE products above a price that users can pay.
