Abstract : It was pointed out that the primary purpose of the pilot studies reported here was to explore the potentialities of applying Delphi and simulation techniques to such problems as educational planning. Although the author believes that the compilation of a large number of ideas for possible educational innovations has served a useful purpose, not too much weight should be given to substantive findings resulting from these pilot studies. Methodologically the endeavor was found very promising by the participants, who feel encouraged to apply the techniques used to similar problems in a more comprehensive manner in the future.
