The Day-to-Day Job of the Utilization Volunteer: Structure, Problems, and Solutions. The Peace Corps Educational Television (ETV) Project in Colombia: Two Years of Research.
Comstock, George; Maccoby, Nathan
For a report on a two-year research project designed to evaluate the introduction of educational television in Colombian schools by the Peace Corps, "critical incidents" which were collected from the utilization Volunteers (those in the field who were serving as educational television consultants) are presented. The first part of the report analyzes these "critical incidents", and discusses the purposes of their collection: to analyze the job and role of the utilization Volunteer, to provide training material, and to catalogue the difficulties instructional television is likely to encounter at the point of reception in the schools of a developing country. A review of school case studies is provided in the second part, and in Part Three the findings of these case studies are summarized and discussed. A final part consists of a casebook of over 100 "critical incidents" as they were reported by the Volunteers. (Author/SP)
