PROGRAMMED INSTRUCTION IN AUDIO-VISUAL EQUIPMENT OPERATION AND APPLICATION.
DIAMOND, ROBERT M.
IN THE FALL SEMESTER OF 1963 PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION WAS INTRODUCED TO TEACH STUDENT TEACHERS THE OPERATION AND APPLICATION OF AN OVERHEAD PROJECTOR, A TAPE RECORDER, AND FILMSTRIP-SLIDE PROJECTORS. IT WAS DECIDED THAT EACH PIECE OF EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE PROGRAMED INDEPENDENTLY, THAT A LIGHT, INFORMAL APPROACH BE USED, AND THAT, WHILE LEARNING, THE STUDENTS BE BROUGHT IN CONTACT WITH RELATED INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS. THE PROCEDURE, ADMINISTERED BY THE STUDENTS, WAS THE SAME FOR ALL TYPES OF EQUIPMENT, AND CONSISTED OF A PROGRAMED BOOKLET PLUS RELATED TRAINING MATERIAL. THE PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION WAS POSITIVELY RECEIVED BY STUDENTS AND TEACHERS. SINCE THE PROJECT WAS BEGUN A GREAT INCREASE IN STUDENT USE OF EQUIPMENT COVERED WAS OBSERVED, THE NEED FOR THE INSTRUCTOR TO BE PRESENT WAS ELIMINATED, AND THE PROGRAM BECAME STANDARD FOR NEW FACULTY. THE CONCLUSIONS ARE THAT AUDIO-VISUAL EQUIPMENT TRAINING CAN BE EFFECTIVELY PROGRAMED, AN INFORMAL APPROACH APPEARS TO HEIGHTEN INTEREST AND REDUCE PREVIOUS BIAS, SHORT, SELF CONTAINED PROGRAMS INCREASE UTILIZATION AND FLEXIBILITY, AND CLASS ROOM APPLICATION CAN BE DEMONSTRATED BY USE OF SAMPLE MATERIALS. SAMPLE PAGES OF PROGRAMS ARE SHOWN IN THE APPENDIX. (OH)
