National Academy of Education Educational Research Management Workshops: Final Report.
National Academy of Education, Washington, DC.
Educational researchers have rarely been given training or apprenticeship experience in one of the most fundamental but neglected aspects of contemporary educational research: educational research management. The ability to muster the resources and develop effective management skills is an indispensable ingredient of modern research. Women and minorities have been especially neglected as potential research managers. The National Academy of Education, having received funding from the National Institute of Education to develop, run, and evaluate a pair of two-week workshops in educational research management, prepared a report on the results. The objectives of the workshops included the training of promising women and/or members of minority groups as researchers, and the enhancement of career development by fostering professional contacts. The workshops included lectures, discussions, and simulation exercises in the areas of research design and methodology, proposal preparation, budget creation, and project management. Other topics listed in this report include the participant selection process, the schedule and structure of the workshops, content, resource materials, and a list of the names and credentials of the workshop participants.
