ABSTRACT
The article describes the development of the Office Systems Research Association (OSRA) model curriculum projects that were launched in 1986 and in 1996. Action research is a problem-based model originating in the work of Kurt Lewin. Its key stages are assessment, design, implementation, and evaluation. Action research supports the notion that curriculum development involves both systematic inquiry and workplace demands. The models based on OSRA consists of two curriculum development efforts: the first and second Curriculum Development Group.
