The Systems Approach to Education.
In this report, the definitions of systems and systems analysis are examined. The role of the systems analyst is discussed, and the steps that he and the designer take in developing a system for an organization are described. Some of the steps that the organization can take to aid in the analysis are also explored. The report looks at the application of the total systems approach to education including, not only the development of curriculum, but also the application of systems to administration. The disadvantages of the total approach are discussed including the impact on the people of the organization and their reluctance to accept new innovations. (Author)
