Changes in Curricula and Institutional Structures.
Bollerslev, Peter; Estes, Nolan
Prepared for a 1984 Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) conference, this report analyzes trends and changes in elementary, secondary, higher, and distance education curricula and institutional structures on the basis of a number of case studies from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Japan, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Divided into four sections by level or type of education, the report reviews changes in curricula, including the most frequently reported use of new information technology and related activities; changes in the teaching/learning environment, including user populations and teacher, parent, and student attitudes; and changes in institutional structures, including implementation policy, financial allocations, and policy changes in regard to administrative staff and physical resource allocation. A final chapter summarizes trends and issues across all educational levels and types. (MBR)
