Australian Association of Adult Education.
LEADERS IN ADULT EDUCATION AND THE TELEVISION FIELDS ADDRESSED A CONFERENCE OF THE AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATION OF ADULT EDUCATION ON TELEVISION AS A VEHICLE FOR ADULT EDUCATION. DISCUSSION GROUPS CONSIDERED SUCH ISSUES AS TARGET POPULATIONS, NATURE OF PROGRAMS, AND USE OF FOLLOWUP MATERIALS AND METHODS. SOME OF THE IDEAS EXPRESSED WERE THAT THE EDUCATIONAL BODY SHOULD HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OF PROGRAM CONTENT, THAT THE TELEVISION STATION SHOULD SHARE CONTROL, THAT NO DIFFERENCE IN PRINCIPLE SHOULD EXIST BETWEEN ORDINARY ADULT EDUCATION AND WHAT IS TAUGHT ON TELEVISION, THAT TELEVISED EDUCATION SHOULD BE MADE OF HUMBLER STUFF TO CATCH AND HOLD THE MASSES, THAT BROADCASTS SHOULD BE MESHED INTO EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS SO THAT COULD BE AMPLIFIED BY FURTHER READING AND DISCUSSION GROUPS, THAT THE LECTURER SHOULD OPERATE THE CONSOLE TO ELIMINATE COSTS OF REHEARSALS WITH CAMERA OPERATORS, THAT AIRBORNE UHF TELEVISION MIGHT BE USEFUL, THAT BETTER LECTURERS COULD BE OBTAINED BY PRERECORDING PROGRAMS AT TIME CONVENIENT TO THE LECTUERERS, THAT FINANCIAL SUPPORT SHOULD COME LARGELY FROM THE COMMONWEALTH AND STATE GOVERNMENTS. RESEARCH FINDINGS ON THE EFFECT OF TELEVISION ON SUCH MATTERS AS PERFORMANCE AT SCHOOL, PERSONALITY MODELS, AND SPORTS INTEREST WERE REPORTED. THERE APPEARED CONSENSUS THAT AUSTRALIA SHOULD ATTEMPT HIGH QUALITY TELEVISION EDUCATION.
