Modern Teaching Methods and the Merchant Navy.
About 5% of British domiciled seafarers (cadets, officers seeking higher professional certificates, and ratings studying for certificates) are pursuing correspondence study, largely in vocational subjects. Accordingly, an evaluative report has been made on correspondence course offerings and programed instruction provided by such sources as the Royal and Merchant Navies and the College of the Sea, as well as on vocational and nonvocational teaching at sea and on the uses and availability of tape recorders, 8mm and 16mm films, slides, science kits, reading materials, shipboard equipment, and other instructional aids. Conclusions and recommendations of the report cover such topics as the organization of training, policies and practices of the College of the Sea, and instructors and their preparation. The document includes 28 tables and figures, a sample lesson, a selected bibliography, and suggested courses and aids. (ly)
