THE ADMINISTRATIVE PREPARATION OF EDUCATIONAL MEDIA AND SPECIALISTS.
SCHULLER, CHARLES
IT HAS BEEN FOUND TO BE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO IDENTIFY "GOOD" CHARACTERISTICS OF ADMINISTRATORS AND TO TEACH THESE CHARACTERISTICS TO GRADUATE STUDENTS FOR ADMINISTRATION PREPARATION. THEREFORE, THE EMPHASIS OF THE MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY PROGRAM FOR EDUCATION MEDIA SPECIALISTS IS PLACED UPON PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE OF ADMINISTRATION WITHIN A SCHOOL SITUATION. GOOD ADMINISTRATORS NEED A BROAD BASE OF EDUCATION. THEY SHOULD BE WELL VERSED IN HUMAN RELATIONS AND BE AWARE THAT ADMINISTRATION EXISTS SOLELY FOR THE WELFARE OF THE STUDENT. THE MEDIA SPECIALIST PROGRAM AT MICHIGAN STATE PROVIDES AN INTERNSHIP FOR STUDENTS IN A SCHOOL SYSTEM AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE PROGRAM. INDIVIDUAL STUDENT CONFERENCES PROVIDE A BASIS FOR THE UNIVERSITY TO PLACE THE STUDENT IN A SYSTEM AND PROVIDE AN ACTUAL PROBLEM FOR HIM TO DEAL WITH. CLASS SESSIONS ARE HELD IN SEMINAR FASHION. CLASS OR GROUP VISITATION TO DEMONSTRATIONS OF NEW MEDIA TECHNIQUES OCCUR FREQUENTLY. COMPUTERS MAY BE USED IN THE FUTURE TO PROGRAM PROBLEMS FOR STUDENTS AND TO ANALYZE THEIR SOLUTIONS.
