Nunes, J.M.B. and McPherson, M.A. (2002) An action research model for the management of change in continuing professional distance education. Innovations in Teaching and Learning in Information and Computer Sciences, 2 (1). ISSN 1473-7507Full text not available from this repository.
This paper proposes an action research model as basis for the management of change in continuing professional distance education (CPDE). The model proposed emerged from the need to manage a complex change process from traditional paper-based distance education to e-learning. In order to illustrate and support the model proposed, this paper describes and discusses such a change process in a CPDE Masters programme. The Educational Management Action Research (EMAR) model conjugates pedagogical thinking, curriculum design and organisational context. This model facilitates dialogue of all parties engaged in the design and delivery of CPDE. This enables educational managers to effectively lead change in their courses.
