AMPLIFIED TELEPHONE AS A TEACHING MEDIUM.
JOLLY, JOAN; MADDEN, CHARLES F.
A GRANT TOTALING $58,400 FROM THE FUND FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF EDUCATION ENABLED STEPHENS COLLEGE TO INITIATE AN EXPERIMENTAL EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM BY WHICH AMPLIFIED TELEPHONE COMMUNICATION BROUGHT HIGH-QUALITY INSTRUCTION TO GROUPS OF SMALL LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES. A "MASTER TEACHER" ORGANIZED AND PRESENTED THE BASIC MATERIALS OF THE COURSE. PERSONS OF NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL REPUTATION SPOKE TO THE CLASSES VIA TELEPHONE CONFERENCE NETWORKS ON SUBJECTS RELEVANT TO THE COURSE WORK. A LOCAL COORDINATOR AND TECHNICAL DIRECTOR ON EACH CAMPUS WORKED ON THE PROJECT WITH THE COORDINATOR AT STEPHENS. A TEACHER AT EACH COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY WAS PRESENT IN CLASS DURING THE LECTURES. ONE COURSE FOR FACULTY MEMBERS (A SEMINAR IN SCIENCE) AND TWO COURSES FOR STUDENTS (A COURSE IN CONTEMPORARY SOCIAL ISSUES AND A COURSE IN CONTEMPORARY LITERATURE) WERE ALL SUCCESSFUL IN SPITE OF SOME TECHNICAL PROBLEMS. THIS DOCUMENT (SECOND PRINTING) IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM STEPHENS COLLEGE, COLUMBIA, MISSOURI 65201, FOR $1.00. (AD)
