Educational Research, Development, and Innovation: The Institutionalization of Change in Education.
Spivak, Harriet; Radnor, Michael
In an effort to analyze what management policies and technologies from other disciplines can be applied to the field of education, this report describes the development of an analytical framework and its use to explore implications for policy development. The present work seeks to synthesize the available literature on management policies and to apply the authors' understanding of research, development, and innovation (R/D&I) systems in general to the identification of policy issues and options for strengthening educational research and development. The volume comprises 19 chapters discussing the key generic features of an R/D&I system. Part 1 treats general features of the system, part 2 focuses on an historic overview of R/D&I development and functions, part 3 discusses R/D&I in education and identifies three aspects of educational R/D&I that have been largely neglected, and part 4 considers the state of development of R/D&I system studies as well as future goals, funding, and capacity.
