Markley, O. W.
This is the first volume of a report on a study that (1) investigated the "normative structure" (the governance system) of knowledge production and utilization (KPU) activities in education, (2) developed an analytical framework through which to understand how formal policy acts as a "regulator" of activities in KPU, (3) described major policies of significance to KPU and how they influence the governance of KPU processes in 10 different, representative case studies, and (4) made recommendations that would help in the design of a monitoring program. This volume of the report describes the conduct of the study, the methodological framework that was developed, and the recommendations that were inferred. It also contains an annotated bibliography of various topics covered by the study. Appended are a bibliographic essay of general systems theory and KPU in education, and a discussion of KPU as an educational system. (RC)
