Development of Training Models for Educational Research: A Conceptual Scheme for a Professional Association. Final Report.
Dershimer, Richard A.; And Others
This report describes the rationale, objectives, organization, and activities of each of four alternative models: Model A--Traveling Training Institutes, Model B--Intensive Pre- and Post-Session Courses, Model C--Annual Meeting Training Activities, and Model D--Development of Instructional Packages. These models were developed as a result of a grant to develop new ways in which scientific research associations can create coordinated, continued, and more systematic approaches to research training. The purpose of Model A is to design a traveling research training institute in which a particular course directed by scholars with a particular expertise will be available in different geographical locations three or four times a year. The intent of Model B is to make a concentrated attempt to reach those individuals defined broadly as educational researchers. Model C is designed to examine whether successful training could be conducted during the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). Model D is designed to test the possibility of preparing exportable training materials, which would involve a middle range of expenditures and validation that capitalizes on the experience of AERA in conducting and evaluating instructional training sessions. Reports on the evaluation data for each model, and for the project as a whole, are included. (PD)
