Relating Behavioral Science Research to Practice: What, Why, How.
Fleming, Malcolm L.
The problems of relating research to practice are discussed in the context of what, why, and how. The what of recent research is illustrated by examples which suggest that media-related research is becoming more rigorous, analytical, and theoretical, and thus more reliable and generally applicable. The why is briefly argued with reference to the greater reliability of research-based information over that learned on the job by an individual practitioner. The how is considered by noting the large available reservoir of relevant findings and by describing a way of cognitively relating the practitioner's questions to the researcher's findings through their common interest in relating instructional conditions to instructional effects. A list of references is provided. (Author/RAO)
