A Dissemination Model for New Technical Education Programs. Final Report.
Hull, Daniel M.
The Technical Education Research Center-SW has conceived, tested, and refined a model for disseminating newly developed programs and materials throughout the nation. The model performed successfully in the dissemination of more than 50,000 educational units (modules) of Laser/Electro-Optics Technician (LEOT) materials during a four-year period (1974 through 1977). The model assumes suitable materials and needs assessment data inputs from a materials development project. The materials are given visibility to educators and employers through no-cost/low-cost channels; target areas of high LEOT employment are identified; state and regional meetings are organized for representatives of interested institutions and employers; and organizations are selected (by consensus) for implementing new LEOT training or retraining programs. These materials users are assisted in program implementation and evaluation. (The appendices contain [1] the LEOT curriculum guide, [2] the LEOT instructional materials and program pamphlet, [3] the sample module from the LEOT curriculum, [4] mail-out materials from the LEOT announcement, [5] major activities of the dissemination project, [6] example correspondence, and [7] the LEOT modules/ways and means.)
