    • Abstract


      The main aim of this research work is to identify a suitable educational framework, which can be implemented in the institutions of a specific region, so as to reform their educational system in a contextualized way. It is proposed to investigate the impact of unpredictable events on the instructional methodologies adopted by the globally accepted educational frameworks, by perceiving experts’ opinion in linguistic terms, thus formulating a fuzzy decision matrix to derive the fuzzy set of alternatives. Expert opinions are gathered based on the cost, quality of education, and learning outcomes independently with respect to each imprecise event and the methodology to be considered. The educational framework that adopts the instructional methodology which has the highest grade of membership in the derived fuzzy set of alternatives, shall be considered for implementing educational reformation in the institutions of a specific region to match the global competency with respect to desirable graduate attributes. Fuzzy statistical methods have been applied to verify the closeness of the derivedfuzzy set of alternatives towards making appropriate decisions. Fuzzy Hurwicz Rule is applied to balance the decision due to optimistic or pessimistic views of the experts about the imprecise events.
