ITV CRIES FOR THE CREATIVE APPROACH, A CHALLENGE TO HOME ECONOMICS TECHNIQUES.
KEISER, MARJORIE; SANEHOLTZ, BETTY J.
DEMONSTRATION OF FOOD HANDLING TECHNIQUES WAS AS EFFECTIVE AS THE FOOD LABORATRY APPROACH IN TEACHING HOME ECONOMICS. THEREFORE, INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION (ITV) COULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF CLASSES TOO LARGE TO USE FOOD LABORATORIES. ACCORDINGLY, THE HOME ECONOMICS AND TELEVISION DEPARTMENTS OF A UNIVERSITY COMBINED TO HELP THE LECTURER-DEMONSTRATOR MAKE THE TRANSITION FROM CLASSROOM TO ITV. CLOSEUP-CAMERA VIEWS OF TECHNIQUES AND PRODUCTS, NOT OF THE DEMONSTRATOR, WERE USED. IN THIS WAY THE SUBJECT MATTER DID NOT BECOME DATED AND FILMS COULD BE USED REPEATEDLY. FACTORS TO BE ELIMINATED WERE TOO MUCH MOTION, DISTRACTIONS FROM OBJECTS BEING BROUGHT IN AND OUT, AND TOO MUCH TIME TAKEN TO HANDLE OBJECTS. SUCH PROBLEMS WERE SOLVED BY USING A LONG TABLE ON WHICH SEVERAL DEMONSTRATIONS WERE DISPLAYED. THE DEMONSTRATOR, FOLLOWED BY THE CAMERA, MOVED FROM SETUP TO SETUP. OTHER PROBLEM AREAS CONCERNED PLANNING THE TEXTURE OF PRODUCTS FOR PHOTOGRAPHIC QUALITY, KEEPING FLAT ARRANGEMENTS FROM LOSING IDENTITY, CREATING NECESSARY CONTRASTS BETWEEN FOOD AND BACKGROUND, AND SAVING TIME AND MONEY BY USING PHOTOGRAPHS AND COMMERICAL CHARTS. A TECHNICAL-COORDINATOR REPRESENTING THE HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT WAS NEEDED AS A PART OF THE TECHNICAL CREW. ITV ENRICHED THE COURSE AND ECONOMICALLY SERVED MORE STUDENTS WITH, IN EFFECT, INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION. SIX REFERENCE BOOKS WERE CITED. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "JOURNAL OF HOME ECONOMICS" VOLUME 56, NUMBER 5, MAY 1964.
