Which world? : scenarios for the 21st Century by Allen L Hammond( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 1,482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Which World?, scientist Allen Hammond imaginatively probes the consequences of present social, economic, and environmental trends to construct three possible worlds that could await us in the twenty-first century: Market World, in which economic and human progress is driven by the liberating power of free markets and human initiative; Fortress World, in which unattended social and environmental problems diminish progress, dooming hundreds of millions of humans to lives of rising conflict and violence; and Transformed World, in which human ingenuity and compassion succeed in offering a better life, not just a wealthier one, and in seeking to extend those benefits to all of humanity.--Publisher description

Mathematical models in education and training by Allen L Hammond( Book )

6 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Education and training systems are complex organizations of facilities, instructors, equipment, routines, and students. Because of this complexity, mathematical models can be used effectively to explain the behavior of educational systems and to assist in making decisions relative to better design and operation, and improved cost-effectiveness, capacity, and quality. This document, therefore, presents an assessment of the present state of the art of modeling educational systems. Important to all areas of educational research, the document is written in relatively nontechnical terms and is intended primarily for administrators who are assumed not to have strong mathematical backgrounds. A technical appendix is included for these readers who wish to pursue the actual construction of models in greater depth. (Author)

A flow model for higher education by Allen L Hammond( Book )

6 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The flow model in this report is based on the assumption that degree production (output) is a function of the teaching input (number of faculty) but independent of the student input, except in special circumstances. The basic model deals with the flow of people from one stage of education in science to another, from undergraduate to graduate to postdoctoral status, and to professional employment either within the academic world or outside it. The model should be useful in analyzing national educational data and in answering some policy questions. This report also discusses modifications of the basic model in reference to special situations such as national draft policy, and its limitations. Economic inputs, particularly the role of federal funding and its influence on the system, are briefly considered and several policy implications and recommendations for future research are presented.

?Today, humanity faces a fundamentally different challenge? that of managing a planet and a global human civilization in ways that will sustain both indefinitely. What makes this task less than easy are the pace and complexity of change. Over the next half century, human society will undergo a profound demographic transformation, experience fundamental shifts in the global balance of economic and political power, and cope with nearly continuous technological change. These transformations are inevitable? the forces that compel them are already in place? but their outcomes are far from fixed?
