THE USE OF MULTI-MEDIA INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS WITHIN THE SEMINAR, A FEASIBILITY STUDY.
DIAMOND, ROBERT M.
COLLEGE FRESHMAN COURSES IN THE HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCE WERE SELECTED TO DETERMINE THE USEFULNESS OF AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS IN SEMINARS AND TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE MATERIALS WOULD BE UTILIZED BY THE INSTRUCTORS. AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO DETERMINE THE MOST EFFECTIVE TYPE AND DESIGN OF MATERIALS. ANALYSIS WAS BASED ON INSTRUCTOR REACTION TO AUDIOVISUALLY EQUIPPED ROOMS SUPPLIED WITH SELECTED, ESPECIALLY DESIGNED AND PREPARED MATERIALS. THE INSTRUCTORS DECIDED WHICH MATERIALS WERE USED AND HOW AND WHEN THEY WERE USED. A LIAISON INSTRUCTOR WITHIN EACH DEPARTMENT WORKED WITH THE SEMINAR INSTRUCTORS, TELEVISION INSTRUCTORS, AND GRAPHIC STAFF IN THE PREPARATION OF THE MATERIALS. HE ALSO INTRODUCED AND EXPLAINED THE MATERIALS TO THE SEMINAR INSTRUCTORS. AT THE END OF THE SEMESTER, 11 STATEMENTS WERE GIVEN THE INSTRUCTORS TO BE ANSWERED ANONYMOUSLY. FACULTY REACTION WAS FAIRLY POSITIVE. MULTI-MEDIA INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS WERE EFFECTIVE TOOLS DURING SEMINAR DISCUSSION. EMPHASIS SHOULD BE PLACED ON THE CAREFUL PLANNING OF MATERIALS DESIGNED FOR MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY. THE EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE EASY TO OPERATE, LIGHT, AND ACCESSIBLE.
