Defining the Future; Planning with and for Technology in Higher Education. Proceedings of the EDUCOM Spring Conference (Washington, D.C., April 3-4, 1975).
Interuniversity Communications Council (EDUCOM), Princeton, NJ.
Following the keynote address on the importance of planning and the changing style of management in colleges and universities, various prepared papers developed the meeting theme of using technology in college and university planning. William Massey described the development and use of a computer model for strategic planning at Stanford. Edmund Cranch reviewed the long-range implementation of the planning process with reference to Cornell's experience. The design and use of a support Administration Information System for planning and control at the University of Pennsylvania provided another case report. Planning for computer and television technologies provided the focus for several presentations. After an overview of the obstacles to innovations with instructional technology by Franklin Patterson of the University of Massachusetts, Bruce Lusignan gave a brief description of the Public Service Satellite Consortium and Robert Scott from MIT discussed planning for the expense of information processing systems.
