A Study of Participatory Research, Development, Dissemination and Implementation.
Lally, J. Ronald; Haiman, Peter E.
This study examined "participatory" approaches to the conduct of educational research, development, dissemination, and implementation (RDD&I) programs within the Far West Laboratory. Approaches that are "participatory" involve the participation of educational practitioners in the program. Various types of participation were investigated to discover how those affected by the research actually participated in ongoing research. Findings indicate that the definition of participation varies in each project and the perception of participation is important. Participation in the twenty-one programs that were investigated for this study is summarized and described from the project director's and the educational practitioner's point of view. (Author/CJ)
