MISSION

Section 1.  Purpose

The purpose of the CHANGE Division shall be to serve those who are interested in systemic change in education in a wide variety of settings, including public and private schools, businesses, higher education, and technical institutes.  We believe that fundamental change is necessary in educational settings, for meeting learners' needs, for dramatically improving the quality of education, and for enabling technology to reach its potential contribution to education in all settings.  Further, we believe that systems approaches, most particularly systems design approaches, are necessary for such fundamental change in education.   Part of this purpose will entail attracting many people who are not currently members of AECT.

The goals of the Division shall be: 

 

1. To foster the development of guidance for facilitating the process of systemic change.
