Viewpoints, v50 n3 May 1974
Five educational experts in educational change and diffusion research presented papers at the annual summer Research Conference in Instructional Systems Technology. The papers included a review of the general status of the field, a discussion of the need for further developing applied behavioral science and applying it to the problems of education and a definition of organization development which points out its use of applied behavioral science concepts and its emphasis on the system instead of on the individual. A discussion of the Pilot State Dissemination Program documents another approach to educational change. The fifth paper in the series emphasizes the need to know exactly what happened in change attempts and points out that case studies can advance our knowledge as well as our educational practice. To conclude the series of five papers, the guest editors present an overview of the conference and speculate about future approaches to planned educational change. (Author/WCM)
