Planning Educational Programs: The Advocate Approach.
Crawford, George J.; And Others
This publication describes a workable strategy for instructional program design used in Kansas City, Kansas, in 1972-73. The strategy is known as the "Advocate Team" approach. The advocate team is a small, carefully selected group of people who assume responsibility for developing and recommending a plan which is preferred over a number of seriously considered alternatives. In some applications of the techniques, more than one advocate team is assigned to solve the same planning problem. The teams used in Kansas City were expected to generate and assess seemingly viable program alternatives and to determine their comparative value when viewed in terms of available opportunities and recognized constraints. Further, advocate teams were expected to provide the strongest possible rationale for their final recommended courses of action and to deliver a usable product by an established deadline. (Author/DN)
