A Planning Study to Determine the Feasibility of Developing a New Business and Office Education Curriculum. Moonshot--An Office Occupation Curriculum. Final Report.
Lanham, Frank W.
The purpose of this study was to explore the feasibility of utilizing the systems approach in developing an office occupations curriculum congruent with the concepts in the organic curriculum theory. The title of this project is New Office and Business Education Learning System (NOBELS). An analog system model was developed as the framework in which NOBELS could be developed and tested. The feasibility of NOBELS was evaluated by four criteria: (1) The plan was supported by professional leadership, (2) The plan evolved from available interdisciplinary thinking, (3) The plan provided a structure with profession-wide support and a feasible operational structure, and (4) Dissemination and determination of dissemination, advocates, and acceptors were an integral part of the over-all plan. Face-to-face meetings were held to solve problems and conflicts. Six drafts were written before all criteria of feasibility were determined to be met. (MM)
