Notes on a Change Model for Higher Education: A Heuristic Proposal.
Cooper, Ted L.
The tasks of this paper are to suggest, first, the general nature of future-oriented change needed in higher education, and second, the outline of a model for the systematic analysis and syntheses of that change. The author feels that although administrators are aware of what is going on in higher education, they are largely ignorant or disagree about why the educational programs are such as they are. Thus, he believes that higher education must become more goal oriented, both in graduate and undergraduate education. The process of goal analysis and objectives development can and should work in two directions at once: from the level of global goals toward particulars, and from the level of particulars toward the global. Constant assessment of programs and institutions as a whole are needed to determine where education is going and why. (HS)
