Winter 2010 Newsletter | Resource: Dissemination in STEM Education R&D - Perspectives on Knowledge Use
CADRE has recently published a white paper that argues DR K-12 grantees can enhance the long-term consequences of their work by using insights from research on dissemination. In education and other fields, studies of dissemination have identified processes by which research knowledge reaches (or fails to reach) the practitioners and policymakers who could use it. DR K-12 projects at all stages,...
