Senator CARRICK -On 17 April, Senator Walters asked me a question on the Education Research and Development Committee. My advice is that the ERDC makes grants to applicants to conduct research. The grantee can therefore decide to publish in journal or book form. The Committee acquires a report from the grantee which is considered for dissemination. Depending on its nature, this may take a variety of forms. It may include publication by the Australian Government Publishing Service or having additional copies of the report distributed to appropriate institutions for example universities, colleges and education departments. In some cases seminars and visits are arranged to facilitate dissemination. Articles and reviews frequently appear in Education News. The ERDC is not responsible for making decisions about the implementation of research finance. This is the responsibility of bodies which operate educational systems. The ERDC is aware that greater emphasis needs to be given to dissemination of educational research and is currently exploring ways to improve the communication of research findings.
