On Structuring the Educational Experience to be Responsive to Students: Organizational Development in the Classroom. University of Nebraska Applied Experimental Studies in Organizational Psychology Paper 77-03.
Pate, Larry E.; Merker, George E.
Current challenges to the more traditional orientations of higher education are apparent in the debate between educators who seek to broaden the student's perspective and develop scholarship and students who seek to find the relevance of their course material to their current perspective. This debate is similar to problems encountered within business organizations which are faced with the need to cope with rapid change. The present paper examines this issue and recommends both a method for easing the pressures involved and testing the effectiveness of such treatments. (Author)
