This paper synthesises various aspects of Education and Systems research (through literature survey and a limited case study and taxonomical method) with the view to a method for investigation and development of actions for problematic environments such as instructional technologies. And, to operationalise research outcomes as an on going real-world scenario. Virtual Lectures and Learning Materials (resource-based learning and Web-sites) have been extant at Swinburne University of Technology, Lilydale (SUTL) Information Systems & Computing Discipline for some years, however, such material and developments currently fail to account for systemic events like a learner centric perspective of learning. While many systems theories would account for current instructional technology development as a content driven approach to learning, what theory or theories deal with problematic scenarios caused through critical situations (radical transformation events)?
