Packaging Your Educational Program. Draft Version.
Rosenau, Fred S.; McIntyre, Diane H.
This handbook for educators focuses on the packaging of validated educational products or processes as one part of the total diffusion process. Included are the planning, preparation, production, and putting together of all the parts of an effective program so that it will then be transportable to other sites: the package itself focuses principally on the needs and interests of school districts considering the adoption or adaption of the original program. The contents of this handbook, which reflect the current state of a rather new set of education-related activities, are divided into four sections: (1) "Planning the Package" provides an overview of major issues--the purpose, the target population, analysis of package contents--and suggests how to get started; (2) "Staffing, budgeting, and scheduling" offers helpful guidelines for managing package development; (3) "Production considerations" covers many details of producing the actual package components and distributing the finished product; (4) "References" consists of selected practical readings, forms, and charts chosen to help make specific packaging and diffusion decisions. Two case studies of school projects that have already packaged their products are included, along with a brief list of suggested further readings. (Author/AP)
