FINAL REPORT ON TWO INTER-INSTITUTIONAL PROGRAMS UTILIZING AMPLIFIED TELEPHONE COMMUNICATION.
Stephens Coll., Columbia, MO.
STEPHENS COLLEGE USED SEVERAL NEW INSTRUCTIONAL DEVICES IN INTRODUCING TWO INTERINSTITUTIONAL COURSES. THE UNDERGRADUATE COURSE, "AMERICAN LIFE AS SEEN BY CONTEMPORARY WRITERS," SUPPLEMENTED DISCUSSION SESSIONS WITH POETRY READINGS ON AUDIO TAPES AND LECTURES VIA AMPLIFIED, LIVE TELEPHONE COMMUNICATION. THE LATTER DEVICE ALSO MADE POSSIBLE CONVERSATION BETWEEN PROMINENT LITERARY FIGURES AND STUDENTS AT ALL THE PARTICIPATING COLLEGES. STUDENTS EVALUATING THE GENERALLY VERY SUCCESSFUL COURSE EXPRESSED A DESIRE FOR MORE DEPTH AND LESS BREADTH IN INSTRUCTIONAL APPROACH. THE COURSE, "NEW APPROACHES TO THE TEACHING OF MATHEMATICS," EMPLOYED THE ELECTROWRITER, AN INSTRUMENT THAT TRANSMITS WRITTEN IMAGES OVER TELEPHONE CABLES.
