Educational Development.
Hemphill, John K.
Educational development is a systematic process of creating new alternatives that contribute to the improvement of educational practice. Sources of educational development may be the school itself, colleges and universities, or the instructional materials industry. There are two types of educational development: product development and change support. In product development improvement in educational practice stems from the creation of tools, things or devices, which when used as directed, are known to yield desirable and specified outcomes. The change support approach emphasizes direct intervention, seeking to improve the behavior of those who are engaged in the practice of education. Most educational development is a mixture of these two approaches. The strategy chosen to implement the educational improvement depends upon the relative degree of emphasis on these two approaches.
