Dissemination at the National Institute of Education: Contending Ideas about Research, Practice, and the Federal Role. A Study of Dissemination Efforts Supporting School Improvement. People, Policies, and Practices: Examining the Chain of School Improvement, Volume VI.
Thompson, Charles L.
The sixth volume of a 10-volume report, this document provides an analytic history of dissemination at the National Institute of Education, focusing on six dissemination-related programs supported by the Institute: Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC), State Dissemination Capacity Building Program, Urban Sites/Documentation and Technical Assistance Program, Teachers' Centers Exchange, Research and Development Utilization Program, and Research and Development Exchange. The emergence, implementation, and (when possible) results of the six dissemination programs are described within the social and political context affecting the Institute's development and/or support of these programs. Analyses of the different interpretations of dissemination associated with each program and their relationship to research, practice, and the federal role in education run throughout the volume, providing the author's interpretation of the descriptive material.
