Title: Brief Overview of Major Concepts from E.M. Rogers? Work on Diffusion of Innovations (Information Resource)

Description: What follows are a selected set of concepts presented by Rogers in his oft-cited book entitled Diffusion of Innovations (initially published in1962). We have chosen concepts which may be particularly helpful as an introduction to those concerned with diffusion of innovations and science-based practices into school settings. We also highlight some concerns related to Rogers? conceptualization using the example of recent work by Greenhalgh and his colleagues (2004)
