This represents a typical educational model where there re different types of people, infrastructure, delivery methods and learning resources. Many educators would agree on this and even would be able to relate it to their own organisational settings.

Areas considered important:
· Staff and course re-development
· Student engagement and its relationship to change
· Using change management principles to re-engage learners for change
· Organisational change as 3 separate phases (Lewin, 1952);
1. unfreezing of the old culture and setting the stage for change,
2. making the change happen, and
3. re-freezing, to make the changes stick.
· Communicating the vision through an induction experience
Kotter has introduced 8 steps to lead change. He also found that all eight steps needed to be present and in the right order for the change process to be successful.
Kotter acknowledged that these steps also take time, and warns that moving onto the next step before enough time has been spent on the preceding step will only give the illusion of progress.
