A Nation of Learners [Audiotape.]
Brooks, Douglas M.
This set of six audiotapes provides a resource for educational leaders who want to create a new learning America--a learning community of the future where creative partnership and a new shared accountability between school, business, and the community emerges. Interviews were conducted with parents, researchers, teaching teams, building principals, university educators, leaders in the private sector, local communities, state governments, America 2000, and other interested persons who spoke to their aspirations for a new learning America committed to full human resource development, learning systems design, and the development of learning communities. Topics included vision sharing, learner systems, learning systems, collaborative leadership, professional development and accountability through quality customer service. The tapes explain integrated learning systems; research on intelligence; current thinking on cognitive systems; instructional strategies using video, audio, CD-ROM, and computer networks; business principles of quality customer service; and product excellence applied to educational reform.
