Miller, David C.; Hunt, Ronald L.
An introductory graduate level course curriculum for Futures Studies was conceived, designed, and tested within the Cybernetic Systems Program and the Instructional Technology Department, School of Education, California State University, San Jose. The curriculum consists of a series of 15 learning modules including 2 devoted to a standard study procedure, and 13 treating the following concepts: the time-line appraising futures reports; futures studies methods; change; alternative futures; forecastability; confidence in forecasts; attitudes toward futures; causality and futures; manageability of futures; values and futures; transcendental change; and stability. An experimental offering of the course emphasized student development of multimedia presentations and demonstrated the basic viability of both the curriculum and the multimedia approach. (Author)
