New Media and College Teaching.
Thornton, James W., Jr.; Brown, James W.
Five hundred current innovative media projects in 300 colleges and universities are reported here by faculty members responsible for them; these reports are the basis for state-of-the-art evaluations; and both evaluations and reports are arranged in this Higher Education Media Study by fields; instructional television, mediated self-instruction, special multimedia facilities; transparencies, telephone applications, simulation, systems, and media services management. Introductory comments relate media to their instructional use and this study to one in 1963, "New Media in Higher Education." Some of the concluding remarks are that: applications seem to be more adaptive than creative, credible materials of instruction need to be developed nationally and regionally, and housing of media is still inadequate. Indices by topic, contributore, and institution are provided. A "Media Activity Inventory-Directory," the product of two nationwide mail surveys (1966-67) is appended; it is arranged by state, institution, and media project leader. (MF)
