Dissemination and Utilization of Educational Research. Report of a Regional Seminar (Tokyo, Japan, November 9-25, 1983).
National Inst. for Educational Research, Tokyo (Japan).; United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Asian Centre for Educational Innovation for Development.
Research from 14 Asian and Pacific countries suggests that the outcome of educational research is not sufficiently utilized by educators in those countries. Several recommendations for the development of information exchange were discussed at an educational research seminar. It was recommended that research projects be worthy and be people-oriented, and that the prospective beneficiaries and users be actively involved in the projects. One national level institute in each country should be designated as the coordinating agency for research dissemination. Personnel responsible for dissemination should be knowledgeable concerning educational perspectives and priorities in their countries and receive training in the information and computer sciences. Existing international organizations should facilitate dissemination of research information in the region, and each member country should take advantage of existing network services. A list of participants and papers delivered from each country are provided in the appendices, which make up the bulk of the report. (RM)
