Educators' Guide for the Future.
Heathers, Glen; And Others
This guide is intended to introduce educators to the kinds of instructional changes necessary to provide students with adequate preparation for the changing world of the future. The guide is made up of three units divided into eight independent modules that can be used in individual study, workshops, university courses, and so on. These modules treat such themes as futures concepts, forecasting techniques, alternatives for future-oriented education, problem-solving skills for the future, and introduction of futures study into the educational program. These themes are related to the available literature, to which the user is directed. The guide concludes with a bibliography of futures-oriented materials, the most important of which are annotated.
