Instructional Systems.
Banathy, Bela H.
The underlying assumption of this book is that the systems approach has a dual role in education. "As applied 'in' education, it offers a powerful methodology for decisionmaking and design development. As applied 'to' education, it may bring about a clear understanding of what education is truly about." The essential purpose of the book is to discuss the use of simple system development strategies in curriculum design, development, and implementation. Written on an introductory level, it is intended particularly for use in courses in curriculum construction or in inservice training programs. The six chapters of the book (each of which includes charts, outlines, and examples intended to clarify the concept of systems analysis so that the reader will be better able to apply them to his immediate purposes) are ordered according to the following progression: (1) Systems and Education; (2) Systems for Learning; (3) The Formulation of Objectives; (4) The Analysis of Learning Tasks; (5) The Design of the System; and (6) Implementation and Quality Control. Included also are a glossary of related terms and a list of selected references. (JES)
