USING TELEVISION FOR INDUSTRIAL SUPERVISORY DEVELOPMENT.
SCHAEFER, CARL J.; STRONG, MERLE E.
THE HYPOTHESIS THAT THE MEDIUM OF TELEVISION IS AN EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT METHOD OF PROVIDING PROGRAMS FOR SUPERVISORY DEVELOPMENT WAS TESTED. FOR NINE CONSECUTIVE WEDNESDAY EVENINGS, FOUR CLASSES OF FROM 10 TO 16 STUDENTS, SUPPLIED BY THE FOREMAN'S CLUB OF COLUMBUS, ALONG WITH FOUR UNTRAINED AND INEXPERIENCED GROUP LEADERS, WERE GIVEN INSTRUCTION, VIA EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION IN EFFECTIVE SPEAKING. AFTER THE 30-MINUTE PRESENTATION, THE LEADER IN EACH GROUP HANDLED THE CLASS. THE TELEVISION TEACHER HAD TWO ASSISTANTS AND A GUEST FROM EACH OF THE FOUR CLASSES FOR EACH OF HIS DEMONSTRATIONS. PRESENTATION, PARTICIPATION, AND GROUP LEADER EFFECTIVENESS WERE EVALUATED BY THREE JUDGES WHO VISITED EACH GROUP AT LEAST TWICE AND SUBMITTED 28 EVALUATIONS. THE TELEVISION PRESENTATION PHASE RECEIVED 19 EXCELLENT RATINGS, AND THE GROUP PARTICIPATION PHASE RECEIVED 12 EXCELLENT AND 13 GOOD RATINGS. STUDENT OPINIONS FROM PRE- AND POST-COURSE QUESTIONNAIRES SHOWED--(1) 73 PERCENT FELT THE TELEVISION PRESENTATIONS WERE MORE INTERESTING THAN NORMAL PROCEDURES, (2) 88 PERCENT FELT THE TELEVISION INSTRUCTOR WAS MORE COMPETENT THAN THE GROUP LEADERS, (3) 70 PERCENT FELT THAT THE GROUP PROGRESSED FASTER THAN IF TELEVISION HAD NOT BEEN USED, AND (4) 57 PERCENT MISSED THE OPPORTUNITY OF ASKING QUESTIONS DURING THE TELEVISION PRESENTATION. OF THE 58 STUDENTS ENROLLED, ATTENDANCE AVERAGED 66.5 PERCENT. FORTY-TWO RECEIVED COMPLETION CERTIFICATES. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE USE OF TELEVISION HAS REAL POSSIBILITIES IN TRAINING SUPERVISORY PERSONNEL IN INDUSTRY.
