Common Purposes as a Prerequisite for Networking.
To assess the potential for linking American teacher centers in a national information and resource sharing network, leaders of 44 teacher centers and teacher-education programs identified with the open-education movement were interviewed. Interviewees were asked if they would value an agency to increase their information and talent sharing, and to identify possibilities and problems of such an attempt. The interviews disclosed widespread interest in expanding professional communication and mutual problem solving. Four specific functions that might be undertaken by a formal networking and assistance agency are identified; limitations of such an agency are discussed. An attachment lists those persons interviewed and site visits made. (SK)
