Faculty Research Development Workshop. Final Report (October 1978 - March 1982).
Howard Univ., Washington, DC. Mental Health Research and Development Center.
A project to expand the participation of faculty from predominantly black colleges and universities in educational research and development is described. During three 4-week summer residential workshops, three courses were offered: Models and Methods of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Computer Utilization in Social and Behavioral Sciences, and a course entitled Grantsmanship. The grantsmanship course was accompanied by structured practicum visits to and in-class presentations from federal and private agencies. Ongoing technical assistance was also provided to participants throughout each workshop year. This component included literature searches, assistance in developing proposals, and reviewing manuscripts for publication. Over the 3-year period, a total of 301 applications for participation were received. From this group, 98 individuals were accepted and 93 participated. These participants produced 16 articles and papers and 20 proposal applications. Workshop assessment and course evaluation results are presented, along with the following appendices: course descriptions and outlines for 1979, 1980, and 1981; a list of workshop presenters, participants, and agencies visited, 1979-1981; a list of articles and papers completed by participants; and bibliographies for each course.
