Guidelines for the Integration of Instructional Television in Speech and Hearing Facilities.
Borich, Gary D.
To devise an efficient instructional television system, the planner must first identify and assess objectives for target audiences; allow for construction of a flexible, expansible system; plan for exchangeable instructional tapes; observe instructional procedures for large class, small group, and remote location operations; consider types of library tape storage; plan to integrate the proposed system with research interests; allow for present and long-range curricular and service functions of the system; and evaluate whether a television system is needed to satisfy the identified instructional objectives. Next, the planner must choose between a centralized-studio, decentralized-mobile, or combination philosophy of operation through analyzing cost effectiveness and ability to meet functional requirements, and determine the size and number of systems (each of which consists of program origination, distribution, and reception components) needed. Once these decisions have been made, the television studio can be planned and equipped with the system (large, medium or small) which is best suited to the proposed instructional objectives, operational philosophy, and budget. Finally, the system should be staffed with an administrator, a coordinator of objectives and system capabilities, a non-technical operator, and a technician. (SP)
