Research, Adaptation, & Change.
Morris, Lee A., Ed.; And Others
Research adaptation is an endeavor that implies solid collaboration among school practitioners and university and college researchers. This volume addresses the broad issues of research as an educational endeavor, adaptation as a necessary function associated with applying research findings to school situations, and change as an inevitable phenomenon as well as a positive consequence of research adaptation and practical application. Articles develop the concepts inherent in the collaborative effort and provide some practical insights based on experience in efforts to merge research adaptation and educational change. Sections concerning the credibility and collaboration of research, adaptation and educational change, concepts and ideology of change, and planning and assisting change include articles on: (1) the quest for scientific and practical credibility of educational research; (2) collaborative action research; (3) the social and political context in which some research projects operate; (4) research adaptation as a change process; (5) the aura of change; (6) analyses of change ideologies; (7) change models as a framework for project evaluation; and (8) technical assistance.
