AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF INFLUENCE OF THE EXPERIENCED TEACHER ON TELEVISION.
MYERS, LAWRENCE
THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE EXPERIENCED COLLEGE TEACHER WAS EVALUATED AS HE LECTURED TO STUDENTS OVER TELEVISION. FOUR PAIRS OF EXPERIENCED AND INEXPERIENCED TEACHERS WERE SELECTED FOR FOUR EXPERIMENTAL LECTURES PRESENTED WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF AN EXISTING LIBERAL ARTS COURSE. ELEMENTS WERE SO ROTATED THAT STUDENTS WERE EXPOSED TO BOTH THE CONVENTIONAL CLASSROOM AND TELEVISION TEACHING METHODS BY BOTH EXPERIENCED AND INEXPERIENCED TEACHERS. THE FACTORIAL DESIGN PERMITTED ONE TO RELATE STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT TO TEACHERS AND TO METHODS. THE TELEVISION AND CONVENTIONAL PRESENTATIONS MADE BY EXPERIENCED AND INEXPERIENCED TEACHERS APPEARED TO BE EQUALLY EFFECTIVE WHERE DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION FOR IMMEDIATE RETENTION WAS DESIRED. EXPERIENCED TEACHERS WERE EQUALLY EFFECTIVE "LIVE" OR ON TELEVISION WHEN TEACHING STUDENTS (1) TO APPLY PRINCIPLES, (2) TO INTERPRET DATA, (3) TO THINK CRITICALLY, AND (4) TO ACCEPT ATTITUDES. THE EXPERIENCED TEACHER MADE THE STRONGER IMPRESSION ON STUDENTS ON SELECTED PERSONALITY TRAITS. SUGGESTED AIMS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH WERE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF CRITERIA FOR A SUCCESSFUL TELEVISION TEACHER PERSONALITY AND A STUDY OF THE NATURE OF THE LEARNER IN THE TELEVISION COMMUNICATIONS PROCESS.
