EDUCATIONAL MEDIA IN INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT AT THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY.
MILLER, THOMAS E.
TO ELIMINATE THE PROBLEMS ARISING FROM THE ACQUISITION OF INAPPROPRIATE MEDIA MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT, AN INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEMS UNIT WAS DESIGNED, TESTED AND EVALUATED AT OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF EDUCATION. THE SYSTEM, DEVISED WITH THE AID OF A REVIEW OF THE APPROPRIATE LITERATURE, CONSISTS OF FIVE PHASES--(1) IDENTIFYING THE PROBLEM AND PEOPLE INVOLVED, (2) PLANNING THE CURRICULUM TO MEET LEARNER GOALS, (3) BUILDING THE TRIAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT, (4) TESTING AND REVISING THE ENVIRONMENT, AND (5) DISSEMINATING THE RESULTS. AS A TEST, THE SYSTEM WAS USED TO DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT AN EDUCATIONAL ORIENTATION COURSE AT OSU. EVALUATION OF THE COURSE WAS LIMITED BUT GENERALLY FAVORABLE, AND IS BEING CONTINUED. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT THE SYSTEM IS WORTHWHILE IN THAT IT (A) ENCOURAGES A MORE ANALYTICAL EXAMINATION OF INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS IN TERMS OF THEIR NEEDS AND EFFECTIVENESS, (B) EMPLOYS THE TEAM APPROACH IN THE CURRICULUM DESIGN, (C) REQUIRES DEFINITIVE STATEMENTS OF LEARNER GOALS, ENVIRONMENT DESIGN AND EVALUATION, (D) MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR THE TEACHER TO STUDY AND DESIGN HIS INSTRUCTION WITHIN A MINIMUM TIME, (E) REDUCES FAILURE IN INSTRUCTIONAL INNOVATION AND (F) INCREASES THE DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION DEALING WITH EDUCATIONAL CHANGE. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION CONSIDER THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A SIMILAR SYSTEM FOR SUPPORTING PLANNED CHANGE. (AW)
