TELEVISED INSTRUCTION IN UNIVERSITY RESIDENCE HALLS WITH TRAINED UNDERGRADUATES AS DISCUSSION LEADERS.
JANES, ROBERT W.; AND OTHERS
THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY WAS AN EXAMINATION OF THE INTERACTION OF THREE INNOVATIONS IN HIGHER EDUCATION--(1) TELEVISED INSTRUCTION, (2) INCREASED STUDENT PARTICIPATION IN THE LEARNING-TEACHING PROCESS, AND (3) INCREASED ATTENTION TO THE EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT OF RESIDENCE HALLS. DURING EACH SEMESTER OF A 3-YEAR PERIOD, THE LECTURE-DEMONSTRATION PART OF A LOWER-DIVISION, GENERAL SOCIAL SCIENCE COURSE WAS TELEVISED ON AN OPEN CIRCUIT. STUDENTS WERE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND THE TELECASTS EITHER IN CLASSROOMS OR IN RESIDENCES. NINE OF THE LECTURES WERE FOLLOWED BY STUDENT DISCUSSION LED BY UNDERGRADUATES WHO HAD PREVIOUSLY PARTICIPATED IN A TRAINING PROGRAM. DATA WERE COLLECTED ON STUDENT APTITUDE, ACHIEVEMENT, OPINION ON RELEVANT QUESTIONS, ATTENDANCE, AND A VARIETY OF OTHER PERTINENT FACTORS. WHEN GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO VIEW INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION PROGRAMS IN THEIR RESIDENCES, A LARGE PROPORTION WILL DO SO. THE PLACE OF VIEWING SEEMS TO HAVE NO PRACTICAL EFFECT UPON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT. THERE APPEARED TO BE NO MEASURABLE DIFFERENCE IN ACADEMIC MOTIVATION BETWEEN THOSE WHO VIEW IN CLASSROOMS AND THOSE WHO VIEW IN RESIDENCES. THE OPINION OF LEADERS THEMSELVES AS GATHERED BY QUESTIONNAIRE, INTERVIEW, AND OBSERVATION INDICATED THAT THEIR PARTICIPATION AND TRAINING CONTRIBUTED TO THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF AN INTEREST IN THE COURSE, TO THEIR ABILITY AS STUDENT LEADERS AND TO THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF THE ROLE OF THE TEACHER.
