A Review of Literature: Training and the Change Process.
Olivier, Maurice
This document is a review of literature on the educational change process; it is designed to detail the role of training in the process of dissemination in a changing climate of education. To do this, it gives attention to defining educational change. The document is divided into five chapters. Chapter one, entitled "Defining the Change Process--An Exercise in Gerrymandering," reviews different approaches to types and theories of change, change models, and phases of change. Chapter two, "People and the Change Process," covers leadership, institutional role, and organizational change, structure, and climate. Chapter three focuses its attack on training and the change process and considers inhibitive and facilitative views of training, an emerging definition of training, and some research studies on training and the change process. Chapter four, on instrumentalities of change, is divided into two sections: meetings that focus on diagnosing a situation and meetings that focus on altering it. Chapter five is a summary; it states that the literature reviewed contains little that is reliable and dependable for use by the practicing school administrator in the task of administrating for change. There is an 11-page bibliography. (JA)
