THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PACKAGED PROGRAM DESIGNED TO ENABLE TEACHERS TO CARRY ON THEIR INSERVICE AND AUDIOVISUAL EDUCATION, DRAFT OF FINAL REPORT.
WILLIAMS, CATHARINE M.; AND OTHERS
A PROJECT WAS UNDERTAKEN TO DEVELOP A SERIES OF PACKAGED, INTEGRALLY RELATED, SELF-ADMINISTRABLE WORKSHOPS WHICH COULD BE USED BY TEACHERS FOR INSERVICE AUDIOVISUAL EDUCATION. EACH WORKSHOP PROGRAM WAS PRODUCED AROUND A PARTICULAR TOPIC, FOR EXAMPLE, OVERHEAD PROJECTION. THE PROGRAMS WERE LATER TESTED, REVISED, AND EVALUATED IN SAMPLE SCHOOLS. EACH PROGRAM WAS PACKAGED IN TWO PORTABLE KITS, ONE CONTAINING INFORMATION AND GUIDANCE FOR THE SCHOOL PRINCIPAL AND THE OTHER CONTAINING MATERIALS AND GUIDANCE FOR CONDUCTING A PARTICULAR WORKSHOP IN A SAMPLE SCHOOL. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE PROJECT WAS HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL, BEING ESPECIALLY HELPFUL FOR TEACHERS WHO NEEDED TRAINING IN AUDIOVISUAL MEDIA AND METHODS. ADMINISTRATIVE AND TEACHING PERSONNEL REMARKED THAT THE PROGRAMS FOSTERED FEELINGS OF SELF-CONFIDENCE BECAUSE A FELLOW TEACHER (THE LEADER) DEMONSTRATED MASTERY OF EACH SUBJECT PRESENTED. THE AUTHOR POINTS OUT THAT THE PROJECT DEMONSTRATED THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO TAKE AN AREA OF INSTRUCTION, BREAK IT DOWN INTO TEACHABLE UNITS, ASSEMBLE THE MATERIALS FOR TEACHING, PROVIDE GUIDANCE FOR USING THE MATERIALS, TEST THE RESULTS, REVISE THE PROGRAM IN LIGHT OF FEEDBACK FROM THE FIELD, AND END WITH A HIGHLY USEFUL, SELF-ADMINISTRABLE PROGRAM.
