Promising Website Practices for Disseminating Research on Family-School Partnerships to the Community
Chavkin, Nancy Feyl; Chavkin, Allan
School Community Journal, v18 n1 p79-92 Spr-Sum 2008
The issue of research dissemination via websites is part of the larger research utilization question, and the authors begin with a review of literature on the theory and best practices in dissemination. The second part of the study involves an exploratory examination of the websites and dissemination practices of 30 research centers focusing on the field of family-school partnership issues. Using the literature review as a guide to look at the websites, the researchers rate each website and compile a listing of promising practices. Although the results are exploratory, they do pose important questions about audience and about including all stakeholders in the research-dissemination process. The results also provide some practical suggestions about websites for both researchers and for family-school partnership programs. (Contains 3 tables.)
