University Continuing Education Units' Commitment to Research: Program Development as Scholarly Work
AbstractThe assumption that there is a positive relationship between research activity and program performance was tested. Thirty program directors were systematically rated on program performance and research activity to determine the degree of correlation, if any, between the two sets of ratings. Analysis of the data indicated there was no relationship between program performance and research activity. Nonetheless, Blaney believes that program personnel should be involved in scholarly work. He proposes a broader definition of scholarship and discusses three reasons for encouraging programmers to pursue scholarly work.
