Review and Analysis of the Role, Activities, and Training of Educational Linking Agents. Final Report.
Piele, Philip K.
A linking agent is a person or team operating at the interface between resources and the school systems for the purpose of facilitating change by producing interaction between the two, thereby reducing the difference between potential and actual educational practice. This discussion of agent roles and training proceeds from a discussion of change and various change models to the various agent roles these models imply. With these roles in mind, ways to devise effective training programs are discussed, including specific programs for each role. The report concludes with a brief discussion of what is known about the practice of each role and with an attempt to suggest areas for further research. A bibliography is included and selected training resources are listed. (Author/IRT)
