Dissemination and Resources Group. Program Plan FY 1978.
National Inst. of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Dissemination and Resources Group.
The program purpose of the Dissemination and Resources Group of the National Institute of Education is to improve dissemination and use of knowledge for solving educational problems and to study, evaluate, and improve the capabilities of institutions and individuals to produce and use knowledge in improving education. The principal strategies for the 1978 program are (1) increasing the understanding of the R&D (research and development) system especially the factors that shape present practices and the relationships between production and use of knowledge; (2) assuring full and effective access to the knowledge resources available; (3) building the capacity in education systems and institutions to disseminate and use knowledge; and (4) strengthening the linkages between the R&D and practice communities through dissemination activities involving State, local, and intermediate education agencies, R&D organizations, teaching institutions, and professional associations. (Approximately half of this report is devoted to discussion of the context of dissemination and utilization in education--the nature of the educational system and the nature of the knowledge resource base--and the role of the Federal government. The other half describes the four 1978 program strategies listed above. A bibliography is included.) (LAS)
