The Uses of Regional Agencies in the Analysis of Dissemination of Innovations.
Sanders, Jack
The purpose of the study was to examine the effectiveness of the Appalachia Educational Laboratory's Experience-Based Career Education (EBCE) program as it was presented n five formal conferences with 230 education officials from Tennessee, Kentucky, and West Virginia. More specifically, the study attempted to evaluate EBCE along the guidelines proposed as objectives by the EBCE User Conferences. Those objectives were to provide public exposure of the EBCE concept to concerned education officials within the Appalachian region, to develop insights into the specific needs and preferences according to geographic areas of interest which might facilitate or suppress the implementation of an EBCE program, and to provide professional feedback to EBCE staff concerning the adequacy of their program. These objectives have been evaluated by two means. The first was subjective, based on observer notes recorded at each conference. The second was more objective, based on conference attendants' responses to questionnaires The questionnaire indicated that the greatest areas of concern were, i descending order of importance: consulting assistance, additional staff, financial issues, additional physical facilities, and loss of control for teachers and administrators. Relevant forms, a sample questionnaire, and a list of 40 facts about EBCE are appended. (Author/PR)
