Sharing Dissemination Responsibilities: A Guide for Articulating Vocational Education Disseminating Programs.
Hull, William L.; Oldsen, Carl F.
Designed for state vocational education Research Coordinating Units (RCU) personnel who manage dissemination programs, this guide offers suggestions for sharing dissemination responsibility with other state programs. The guide examines the possibilities of integrating activities in a horizontal dimension, i.e., across state educational agency components. Likely advantages of this approach, as mentioned by the authors, include wider exposure of available services and more resources available, including a broad range of data and expertise. Economy of scale and greater organizational efficiency are also foreseen. Sections of the guide (1) trace vocational education dissemination research and efforts to date, as well as state, regional and national programs; (2) discuss principles of cooperation; (3) list steps for implementation that emphasize mutual benefits to be obtained; and (4) provide expected outcomes that result from cooperation and resource sharing. Some references for further study are included. (CP)
