An Instructional Systems Technology Model for Institutional Change. Revised Edition.
Dudgeon, Paul J.
The Canadore College Continuing Education Division model for innovative individualized and personalized programs contains several subsystems: analysis of current continuing education, identification of criteria, evaluation of the old model, design of the new model, simulations, evaluation of the new model, and implementation of the new model. The framework for a systems approach to instructional innovation is provided through a process called anasynthesis which allows complex elements of learning processes to be integrated to provide solutions to educational problems. A graphic analog model using LOGOS computer programs was constructed to solve problems of individualized and personalized instruction through anasynthesis. Research findings using the model show that the value of lectures or seminars is dependent on the student. Cognitive styles of students help them adapt instructional strategies to meet their own needs and the most successful personalized education programs combine cognitive and affective strategies. (CH)
