Studies of Educational Dissemination and Utilization: Annual Final Report of the Educational Dissemination Studies Program.
Hood, Paul D.; And Others
This report reviews the 1980 activities of the Educational Dissemination Studies Program (EDSP), which is designed to (1) establish efficient means of communication for analyzing, monitoring, and communicating the status, needs, and accomplishments of educational dissemination performers; (2) increase the quality of and access to knowledge pertaining to the dissemination and utilization process; and (3) establish a participatory capacity for organizing and conducting special studies contributing to improvement of educational dissemination as a regional and nationwide effort. Two interrelated program components are described. The dissemination and utilization studies component collects, analyzes, synthesizes, and communicates information on organizational and interorganizational arrangements supporting dissemination activities, as well as on educator acquisition, assimilation, and use of new knowledge. The special studies component provides a flexible, quick response capacity to mobilize educators to examine or conduct exploratory studies in educational dissemination. Information on program planning and personnel is presented, and EDSP publications completed in 1980 are listed. (Author/FM)
