OFF CAMERA--A PICTORIAL GLIMPSE OF AV-TV--THE WISCONSIN AUDIOVISUAL TELEVISION PROJECT.
WITTICH, WALTER A.
AN INSERVICE TRAINING COURSE IN AUDIOVISUAL METHODS ATTEMPTED TO (1) MEET THE NEEDS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS OF GRADES 2 THROUGH 8, (2) IMPROVE BOTH TEACHER ATTITUDES TOWARD AUDIOVISUAL TECHNIQUES AND TEACHER USE OF AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS, AND (3) USE THE LATEST AND MOST EFFICIENT TEACHING PRACTICES IN PRESENTATIONS TO TEACHERS. TELEVISION WAS USED TO PRESENT THE LESSONS AND UTILIZE THE SKILLS OF THE TEACHING TEAM. WRITTEN LABORATORY ASSIGNMENTS WERE PREPARED BY PARTICIPATING STUDENTS TO REPORT THE USE MADE OF IDEAS LEARNED IN THE COURSE AND CHANGES WHICH OCCURRED IN THEIR CLASSROOMS IN PUPIL LEARNING OUTCOMES. THE ASSIGNMENTS PROVIDED FEEDBACK AND ESTABLISHED A CLOSE TUTORIAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COURSE EVALUATORS AND THE ENROLLED TEACHERS. EVALUATION SCALES WERE USED. CONCLUSIONS INDICATED THAT THE AUDIOVISUAL TELEVISION COURSE REACHED MANY TEACHERS OF LONG TEACHING EXPERIENCE. MANY OF THESE LONG-SERVICE TEACHERS WERE UNABLE TO TAKE ACADEMIC WORK EXCEPT THROUGH THE TELEVISION MEDIUM. FINALLY, IT WAS DEMONSTRATED THAT NOT ONLY DID THE AUDIOVISUAL TELEVISION COURSE REACH THE AUDIENCE FOR WHICH IT WAS DESIGNED, BUT THAT A DEFINITE NEED FOR SUCH A COURSE WAS PRESENT. (HB)
