Implementation of CBTE--Viewed as a Development Process.
Hall, Gene E.
Five areas of research into innovation adoption in educational institutions are described in this report. They are a) identification and description of phases involved in innovation adoption, b) development of assessment methods for predicting an institution's potential for successful adoption of change, c) development of measurement procedures for assessing and diagnosing both individuals and institutions with regard to implementation of innovation, d) transfer of research findings to practicing agents of innovation adoption, and e) using the work of practicing innovation adoption agents to form hypotheses for further research into the realities of change in educational institutions. In the context of these five research areas, the Concerns-Based Adoption Model (CBAM) is presented. CBAM treats innovation adoption as a developmental process organized around the concepts of collaboration linkage, individual use of adopted innovation, and individuals' concerns about their use of the adopted innovation.
