INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS WITHIN THE SEMINAR. FINAL REPORT.
DIAMOND, ROBERT M.
THE EFFECTIVENESS AND UTILIZATION OF AUDIOVISUAL INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS TO FACILITATE DISCUSSIONS IN SEMINARS OF INTRODUCTORY COLLEGE COURSES IN THE HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES WERE EXPLORED OVER TWO SPRING SEMESTERS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI. MATERIALS INCLUDED SLIDES, OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES, FILMSTRIPS, AND TAPE RECORDINGS FOR COMPARATIVE SCULPTURE, HISTORY, MUSIC, PHILOSOPHY AND MUSIC CLASSES. ONE INSTRUCTOR FOR EACH DEPARTMENT WORKED WITH THE OFFICE FOR THE STUDY OF INSTRUCTION AND WITH SEMINAR INSTRUCTORS IN SELECTING AND DESIGNING MATERIALS AND INTRODUCING THEM AND THEIR POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS. TO ASSIST THE HUMANITIES FACULTY AN INSTRUCTOR'S GUIDE, CONTAINING RESOURCE INFORMATION WAS PREPARED. AFTER EACH SPRING SEMESTER, QUESTIONNAIRES WERE DISTRIBUTED TO ALL SEMINAR INSTRUCTORS AND GRADUATE ASSISTANTS. THE FINDINGS--IF WELL SELECTED, INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, HELP PROMOTE CLASSROOM DISCUSSIONS, ARE UTILIZED IN VARYING DEGREES, AND ARE RECEIVED POSITIVELY. A COMPREHENSIVE INSTRUCTOR'S MANUAL SHOULD BE PREPARED TO ALLOW LESSON PLANNING. MATERIALS SHOULD BE SELECTED AND DESIGNED TO ALLOW FLEXIBILITY IN THE CHOICE AND ORDER OF USE, EMPHASIZING QUALITY. EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE SET UP FOR ACCESSIBILITY AND SELECTED FOR SIMPLE OPERATION. APPENDICES INCLUDE A GUIDE TO INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS AND A SOURCE LIST. (JO)
