ELEVEN BROADCASTING EXPERIMENTS.
PERRATON, HILARY D.
A REVIEW IS MADE OF EXPERIMENTAL COURSES COMBINING THE USE OF RADIO, TELEVISION, AND CORRESPONDENCE STUDY AND GIVEN BY THE NATIONAL EXTENSION COLLEGE IN ENGLAND. COURSES INCLUDED ENGLISH, MATHEMATICS, SOCIAL WORK, PHYSICS, STATISTICS, AND COMPUTERS. TWO METHODS OF LINKING CORRESPONDENCE COURSES TO BROADCASTS WERE USED--IN MATHEMATICS AND SOCIAL WORK COURSES, EACH LESSON AND WORKSHEET WERE RELATED TO A SPECIFIC TELEVISION LESSON WHILE IN ENGLISH, GEOGRAPHY, AND PHYSICS LESSONS A LOOSER LINK EXISTED SINCE THE LESSONS APPROACHED THE SUBJECT CONCENTRICALLY. DIFFICULTIES MET WITH INCLUDED REPRODUCTION OF MATERIALS, TIMING, AND LACK OF FLEXIBILITY IN SCHEDULING. STUDENTS INDICATED THAT THEY WANTED EACH LESSON TO BE LONGER AND BROADCAST AT PEAK VIEWING HOURS. THEY FELT IT WAS WASTEFUL TO HAVE PICTORIAL VISUAL MATERIAL, PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF PHYSICS, AND STUDENT PARTICIPATION IN LESSONS. THROUGH CORRESPONDENCE, PERSONAL GUIDANCE WAS PROVIDED, ALSO A DETAILED GUIDE TO SUBJECT MATTER AND A PERMANENT RECORD OF THE COURSE. IT WAS ESTIMATED THAT THE COMBINATION COURSES WERE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN TRADITIONAL CLASS METHODS. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN HOME STUDY, NUMBER 4, FEBRUARY 1968. IT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE NATIONAL EXTENSION COLLEGE, SHAFTESBURY ROAD, CAMBRIDGE, ENGLAND. 7 PAGES. (PT)
