Report of the National Science Foundation Workshop on the Dissemination and Transfer of Innovation in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Education (May 1-3, 1990).
Breslin, Richard D., Ed.
This report describes the findings of the 1990 National Science Foundation (NSF) Workshop on the Dissemination and Transfer of Innovation in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Education, and the resulting recommendations for action to the NSF, to university administration and faculty, to professional societies and journals, and to industry. The workshop was comprised 20 members, representing all levels of responsibility in higher education, and a broad range of disciplines, including chemistry, communication, computer science, earth science, engineering, life science, mathematics, and physics. Six broad needs that must be addressed if the United States is to meet the challenges facing higher education are: (1) the need for visibility; (2) the need for collaboration; (3) the need for taxonomy; (4) the need for evaluation; (5) the need for infrastructure; and (6) the need for educational insight.
