FINAL REPORT ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TWO UNIVERSITY TV COURSES. A PROJECT TO DEMONSTRATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE USE OF TELEVISION AS A MEANS TO BROADEN THE EDUCATION OF TEACHERS IN SERVICE IN PUERTO RICO.
LOUBRIEL, OSCAR; AND OTHERS
THE MAIN PURPOSES OF THE PROJECT WERE TO DEMONSTRATE A NEW TECHNIQUE FOR HANDLING THE TEACHING OF CREDIT COURSES, TO DEMONSTRATE THE ADMINISTRATIVE SETUP NEEDED FOR ESTABLISHING PERMANENT ORGANIZED EDUCATIONAL TV PROGRAMS, TO DETERMINE THE COSTS OF OPERATION, AND TO ENLIST THE INTEREST OF PEOPLE NOT DIRECTLY CONCERNED WITH THE PROJECT. THE REACTIONS OF TEACHERS, TV PROFESSORS, AND DISCUSSION-GROUP LEADERS WERE DETERMINED. NINETY LESSON-PROGRAMS (TWO THREE-UNIT COURSES) WERE RECORDED ON VIDEO TAPE AND TRANSMITTED BY STATIONS WIPR-TV AND WIPM-TV. THE REACTIONS OF THE VARIOUS GROUPS AND PERSONS PARTICIPATING WERE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF A QUESTIONNAIRE. ALL GROUPS WERE FAVORABLY IMPRESSED WITH THE SERVICE OF THE PROGRAMS. THE PROFESSORS FOUND THE TV MEDIUM DEMANDING, BUT BELIEVED THE EXPERIENCE HELPED IMPROVE THEIR OWN CLASSROOM TEACHING. THE HIGHLY FAVORABLE REACTION OF ALL GROUPS SUGGESTS THE FOLLOWING--(1) ESTABLISHMENT OF UNIVERSITY TV WOULD BE MOST WELCOME AND (2) UNIVERSITY TV CREDIT COURSES WOULD BE AN ACCEPTABLE METHOD OF PROVIDING INSERVICE TEACHER EDUCATION.
