Designing from the Heart of an Epistemic Triangle: Systemic, Dialectical, and Constructivist Strategies for Systems Design and Systems Change.
Bhola, H. S.
The point is made that systems thinking should be combined with dialectical thinking and constructivist thinking for effective systems design and systems change. To establish a context, a set of assertions on "How the World Works" in regard to systems design and systems change in education is laid out, as value assumptions undergirding these assertions are also articulated. Then, the Configurations, Linkages, Environments, Resources (CLER) Model for developing systems designs and for enabling the implementation of systems change is offered as a useful parsing and procedural tool.
