Research and Development in Education. A Survey.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This document analyzes the institutional arrangements governing the size, nature, and directions of the educational research and development (R&D) efforts in Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries. The main themes of the present survey are the explicit or implicit goals of educational R&D, its relation to pedagogical practice, and the part it plays in policy and decision-making. A brief summary of the history of educational R&D, identifies two stages: the first relates to a period and situation where R&D did not aspire to intervene directly in education and the second is characterized by a move towards direct and purposeful intervention. These stages are both very much in evidence in the various OECD countries. The chapters following the introduction examine the different types of R&D centers, experimental and development agencies, and dissemination efforts; analyze the available data on finance and human resources devoted to R&D; indicate the substantive nature of R&D efforts; examine the trends in policy-making and planning; and deal with current strategies for R&D that are a function of the value and authority structure of individual educational and social systems.
