Teachers in Television and Other Media; A Survey of Policies and Practices.
Mikes, Donald F.
A survey of 156 institutions using television and other educational media was conducted to determine the extent and nature of contracts or specific policies defining the rights and responsibilities of teachers using educational media. The survey aimed at both discovering present trends in policies and practices and forming a compendium of comparative information for future policymakers. Significantly, nearly one-fourth of those responding to the survey reported no policies governing the use of educational media. The remaining three-quarters reported a wide range of policies, which are broken down according to type of media used and area of policy decision, including teacher salary, work load, ownership rights to media materials, revision and termination rights, rights to reuse of materials within or outside the contracting institution, and liability of teachers. Sample contracts and policy statements are included with bibliography and full survey data in appendices. (BB)
