ABSTRACT
This article reports on the approval of the funding for a national conference on research and instructional development in speech-communication by the U.S. Office of Education (USOE) in 1967. The project, which was sponsored by the Speech Association of America (SAA), includes a preliminary interdisciplinary colloquium followed by a conference of approximately 30 researchers from the field of speech. The purpose of the project is to: produce new information and provocative hypotheses about the role of speech-communication in society; stimulate disciplinary and interdisciplinary research and development activities which will contribute new knowledge about speech-communication; provide for a higher degree of coordination in research and development activities in speech-communication; and encourage innovation and experimentation in the educational laboratory and in the classroom directed toward the development of more viable instructional programs. The project was initiated by the SAA Research Board, and the formal invitation to submit a proposal was issued by Kathryn Bloom, director of the USOE. The advisory committee for the conference includes: J. Jeffery Auer of Indiana University; Samuel L. Becker of University of Iowa; and F. Craig Johnson of Michigan State University in East Lansing.
