ISSOE Dissemination Planning--Phase 1. Findings and Recommendations. Final Report.
The objective of the Instructional Support System for Occupational Education (ISSOE) Dissemination project was to identify alternative methods of, and develop prototype plans for, extended ISSOE dissemination and planning. Phase 1 activities included development of a conference series with individuals experienced in instructional systems, innovation, dissemination, and implementation; review of recent literature on educational innovation; and development of three different models for ISSOE dissemination and implementation. Findings of this phase of research tended to support the conclusion that it is possible to engineer program implementation through close attention to various aspects of (1) ISSOE (the innovation itself), (2) contextual factors which comprise the school organization, and (3) development of a specific implementation strategy based upon user and innovation characteristics. The literature review provided criteria for ISSOE implementation assessment. Three recommendations for ISSOE implementation were made: the State Education Department (SED) should continue to closely monitor ISSOE development and implementation, SED should implement and evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of a variety of dissemination activities, and the systematic development and implementation of a comprehensive staff training program must be undertaken.
