The Eleventh National Dissemination Conference. A Report.
Herlig, Richard K.
The eleventh conference of state education agency (SEA) dissemination representatives on state and federal education dissemination programs was held in Arlington, Virginia, in June 1978. Dissemination efforts of selected federal education programs were discussed, including the Office of Education's (OE) Teacher Center program, Title IV, a state administered formula program funded on the basis of the 5-17 year old population of each state; OE's vocational education efforts, e.g., the Vocational Education Act of 1963 and its 1976 amendments; the ERIC Clearinghouse on Adult, Career, and Vocational Education; and Public Law 94-142 on education of the handicapped. Basic components of state dissemination programs--the coordination, state file building, linkage systems, and basic and ideal elements in SEA resource bases--were also discussed. The reorganization of NIE and an overview of four of its programs--the State Capacity Building Program, the Research and Development Utilization program, the Research and Development Exchange, and ERIC--were also covered. An overview of new directions of selected OE dissemination programs included discussions of the National Diffusion Network and OE regional offices. (MBR)
