The Transformation of Education: By Design.
Banathy, Bela H.; Jenks, C. Lynn
A systems design framework for the transformation of education is presented in this paper. A systems approach views education as a system of interdependent problems and the design process as one of four parts of organizational inquiry. A framework for educational design is presented, which is composed of three dimensions--focus for change, scope of inquiry, and patterns of interaction. A conclusion is that organizations must learn how to initiate and sustain a comprehensive system design process for creating an effective learning environment. Two figures present models of educational design. (5 references) (LMI)
