Dissemination and the Improvement of Practice: Cooperation and Support in the School Improvement Process.
Cates, Carolyn S., Ed.; Ward, Spencer, Ed.
The eight papers in this book summarize discussions and recommendations by participants in a 1977 conference that focused on three topics: definitions of linking functions and roles; coordination of dissemination and linking activities; and support needs of linking agents, including options for providing support. Each of the chapters provides information specific to school improvement efforts, such as the role of administrators in the change process, a framework for dissemination and linking services, training needed by linkers, and federal support.
