INTER-INSTITUTIONAL TEACHING BY TELEVISION IN THE OREGON STATE SYSTEM OF HIGHER EDUCATION.
LALLAS, JOHN E.; STARLIN, GLENN
THE INTER-INSTITUTIONAL TEACHING EXPERIMENT DESCRIBED DEMONSTRATES THAT FACULTIES OF SEVERAL INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING MAY WORK TOGETHER IN A COOPERATIVE PROJECT FOR IMPROVEMENT IN COLLEGE TEACHING. ALTHOUGH THIS COOPERATION IS A NEW AND COMPLEX FIELD IN EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION, IT IS HIGHLY USEFUL. THERE SEEMED TO BE MANY DIFFERENCES IN THE ATTITUDES OF STUDENTS TOWARD TELEVISED TEACHING, RANGING FROM STRONG APPROVAL TO STRONG OPPOSITION. GENERALLY, STUDENTS INDICATED NO OPPOSITION TO THE IDEA OF INTER-INSTITUTIONAL TELEVISION INSTRUCTION. AFTER EXPOSURE TO THESE COURSES, SOME STUDENTS INDICATED A PREFERENCE FOR THE TELEVISED COURSE OVER THE CONVENTIONALLY TAUGHT COURSE. THERE WAS SOME CONCERN OVER THE LOSS OF PERSONAL INTERACTION WITH THE PROFESSOR AND OVER THE INABILITY TO ASK QUESTIONS IN CLASS, BUT MOST ATTITUDES TOWARD TELEVISED TEACHING SEEMED TO BE BASED ON THE SAME FACTORS OF LIKE AND DISLIKE WHICH DETERMINED THEIR ATTITUDES TOWARD REGULAR CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION. THE SIGNIFICANT FINDING SEEMED TO BE THAT STUDENTS WILL ACCEPT AND CAN REACT FAVORABLEY TO TELEVISED COURSES WHICH ARE TAUGHT BY PROFESSORS ON CAMPUSES OTHER THAN THE ONE IN WHICH THE STUDENT IS IN RESIDENCE. FACULTY MEMBERS INDICATED SOME RELUCTANCE TOWARD TELEVISED TEACHING, BUT TENDED TO AGREE THAT EXPERIMENTATION SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT IN TELEVISION TO DETERMINE ITS POTENTIAL AS AN EDUCATIONAL TOOL. THEY FELT THAT LOWER-DIVISION, ELEMENTARY OR BEGINNING COURSES, WITH LARGE ENROLLMENTS AND MANY SECTIONS, WERE MOST ACCEPTABLE FOR INTER-INSTITUTIONAL TELEVISION THAN MORE SPECIALIZED UPPER-DIVISION COURSES.
