Dr. David Chobar, associate professor of education at Morningside College, had a book review published in the Summer 2006 issue of Futures Research Quarterly, a refereed journal for researchers and practitioners involved with the theory, methodology, practice, and use of futures research.
Chobar reviewed the book “Future, Inc.: How Businesses Can Anticipate and Profit from What’s Next,” written by Eric Garland and published in 2006 by AMACOM Books, the publishing arm of the American Management Association in New York, N.Y. Using detailed examples from large corporations and government agencies, the book includes information on how to collect data about the future and turn it into essential strategic insights.
Chobar joined the faculty at Morningside in 2004, teaching secondary education and supervising student teachers. His research interests include legal, ethical, and pedagogical issues in teaching, secondary education issues, the changing role of education in the community, and the potential deterioration of college course requirements for teachers. He is currently serving on a steering committee of the World Future Society, whose purpose is to develop an education section for the organization.
Chobar holds a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, a master’s degree in industrial technology from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, and a doctorate in adult education from Kansas State University in Manhattan.
