Bridging Resources with Needs: An Action Report. Oregon State Dissemination Conference, Oregon Department of Education (Eugene, Oregon, October 25-26, 1979).
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
The approximately 100 participants in this conference, who represented a wide variety of educational and noneducational agencies in and outside Oregon, learned new strategies for networking; shared information about the extensive base of human and material resources available to support school improvement in the state; developed ideas on how groups might collaborate to share resources across organizational boundaries; and passed resolutions commending the Oregon Department of Education for the conference and mandating its continued leadership role in creating a statewide resource sharing network. Conference activities are summarized, including a welcoming address, a context-setting overview, a perspective on the particular concerns of Oregon educators, discussion of the development of a resources notebook, a presentation on networking, small group discussions, and an evaluation session. The report also provides a list of participants, an agenda, sample entries for the Oregon Resources Inventory, excerpts of presentations and publications, readings on dissemination, a selected bibliography on networking, and a conference evaluation form.
