Innovation Dissemination in Adult Education.
Grabowski, Stanley M.
While recognizing the constraints of time and money, there is a distinct need for faster and greater dissemination of research results, especially for innovations in adult education. A study of typical dissemination methods, including project publications, conversation presentations, workshops, commercial publications, and inservice teacher training, has shown they have merits as well as limitations. Educational products, like seeds planted to take root, grow, and bear fruit, should be disseminated so they might be adopted by practitioners and, through their use, bring about change in the learners. Better interagency linkages, one-stop information centers, and using educational extension agents are ideas to consider in approaching new ways to the dissemination/adoption of innovations in adult education.
