Educational Television Across Canada. The Development and State of ETV 1968.
Rosen, Earl, Ed.; Whelpdale, Elizabeth, Ed.
This report of a 1968 survey of educational television (ETV) in Canada presents information in seven sections. The first section, dealing with ETV in the schools, describes programs for national and local levels, the number and types of viewers of ETV, inservice workshops for teachers in how to use ETV, policy plans for equal opportunity among the provinces in using broadcasts, and special programs using closed circuit television or ETV. The second section emphasizes the need for teachers to be aware of the capabilities of television beyond educational broadcasts (such as in microteaching), and describes university teacher training programs in ETV. The third section explores the range of activities of university-level ETV programs, and presents reports on the ETV activities of 20 Canadian universities. The fourth section details present and future uses of ETV in Canadian community colleges. The fifth section discusses the decline of adult education broadcasts, and describes two projects designed to increase continuing education television. The sixth section considers information programs on radio (such as newscasts, farm broadcasts, and lectures) and educational programs designed for radio. The final section offers the concerns of manufacturers of ETV equipment for the most effective use of ETV. (SM)
