Exploding the Ivory Tower: Systemic Change for Higher Education
Watson, William R.; Watson, Sunnie Lee
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v57 n5 p42-46 Sep 2013
Higher education faces increasing pressures to change to better meet the needs of modern society. Systemic change applies systems thinking and systems theory to change a complex system to a new paradigm. This paper argues for the need for the systemic change of higher education and presents educational technologists as particularly well placed to lead this change.
