Staff Development for Implementing Dissemination and Impact Assessment Systems.
Russell, Earl B.
Because linkages between dissemination and the impact assessment systems are necessary to the effective implementation of research and development activities in the area of vocational education, the Department of Adult, Vocational, and Technical Education of the Illinois State Board of Education and staff from the University of Illinois will collaborate on a staff development program to facilitate such linkages. The program will involve staff development activities both for dissemination system staff and for impact assessment staff. Designed to focus on the roles and responsibilities of dissemination staff in implementing and administering the system and on ways of improving staff collaboration, the dissemination staff development aspects of the program will consist of a series of inservice sessions for funding agency staff members, project staff, and linkers; also planned is the development of a dissemination manual for use at the inservice sessions. Objectives of the impact assessment system staff development dimension of the program are to prepare staff development materials covering facilitation of impact assessment and to conduct inservice activities for funding agency and project staff members. Also to be conducted are follow-up activities to obtain feedback on the inservice activities and staff development materials. (MN)
