National Conference of State Dissemination Representatives Proceedings (Washington, D. C., January 8-10, 1975).
Representatives of state education agencies (SEA), the National Institute of Education (NIE), and the U.S. Office of Education met to discuss the purposes and components of effective dissemination systems, state agency capabilities, the relationship between SEAs and NIE, and future cooperation and communication among SEAs on dissemination. Papers were delivered on the activities of NIE's Office of Dissemination and Resources, ongoing SEA dissemination programs, NIE/SEA dissemination projects, and dissemination from a Congressional and legislative point of view. NIE presented its plans for a $1.2 million grant program to give state and local educators better access to the latest results of education research. In addition, the SEAs held information sessions on dissemination operations and management as well as discussion on NIE program plans and the future of the dissemination representatives network. Feedback from discussion groups and results of a survey to evaluate the conference are attached. Appendixes contain rosters of participants, NIE staff and participants, and state dissemination representatives. (LS)
