Anderson-Inman, Lynne; Ditson, Mary
This final report describes activities and accomplishments of the four-year Computer-Based Study Strategies (CBSS) Outreach Project at the University of Oregon. This project disseminated information about using computer-based study strategies as an intervention for students with learning disabilities and provided teachers in participating outreach sites in nine western states with intensive and effective inservice training, technical assistance, and follow-up support. The project's outreach model included the following components: (1) one-week CBSS leadership institutes for liaisons from participating outreach sites; (2) hands-on, CBSS skill-building workshops for teachers, parents, and administrators from participating sites; (3) additional awareness sessions for parents; (4) a continuum of technical assistance and follow-up activities using both electronic and traditional vehicles; (5) a CBSS instructional Web site for extending knowledge and skills as well as supporting implementation efforts through collegial sharing and problem solving; and (6) a Web-based course for in-depth learning and application to new environments. Each of the project's objectives is reviewed and all objectives are reported to have been achieved or exceeded. An appendix lists the project's workshops and other dissemination efforts. (DB)
