A Systems Approach to the Planning and Formulation of Technology Augmented Programs for Management Education.
Burke, Thomas Edward
A management education planning approach called Computer-Assisted Subject Area (CASA) has been conceptualized as a framework for viewing, evaluating, and recording efforts to improve the effectiveness of a subject area to be integrated within an overall curriculum. CASA is a generalized set of models which feature a hierarchy of activities in developing a subject area; an organizational library structure, or information repository, for noting and updating findings and working criteria for use in curriculum planning; and a network of cybernetic representation to highlight dynamic interrelationships between various human and machine elements germane to a professor's subject area. Use of CASA is illustrated in planning a series of programs to give practicing managers a broad but concise introduction to computer technology. Eleven teaching/learning modules were developed, with attention to features and limitations of classroom lectures, films, computer simulations, panel discussions, and other methods and media. Two experimental computer programs (Leisure and Architect/Client) led to the conclusion that a professor untrained in computer use could, in association with regular classroom duties, gain a basic understanding of computer augmented teaching.
