Production of Closed-Circuit Television Programs for Improving Instruction in Professional Health and Physical Education Courses at the Undergraduate Level.
Henderson, Joe M.; Griffey, Bert
To study the adaptability of semi-portable closed-circuit television equipment on remote location, six videotape programs were produced at Midwestern University for use in physical education courses. The programs dealt with "Knee Injuries,""Rehabilitation of Knee Injuries,""Teaching Tumbling by Progression,""The Mini-Tramp,""Introduction to Trampolining," and "The A.A.H.P.E.R. Youth Fitness Test." Inexpensive videcon cameras and one-inch videotape recorders were adequate for programs showing gross motor skills, but programs with more visual detail such as human anatomy required more expensive recording equipment. Technical problems (lighting variables, power supply, camera locations) and production problems (training assistants, production of art work, selection of equipment) influenced recommendations for a television studio with a staff of technicians headed by a professional producer and for further study in the improvement of instruction through closed-circuit television. The portable instant-replay capabilities of the equipment and the resulting flexibility in production and presentation favored these developments. (TI)
