Second Seminar on Direct Teaching by Television (Scheveningen, 1968).
Council for Cultural Cooperation, Strasbourg (France).
A seminar on direct teaching by television, held in Rome in December of 1966, created such interest that it was decided to call a second seminar, restricted to adult education, which was held at Scheveningen, July 1-5, 1968. The subject was the assessment of needs and evaluation of results. The purpose was to compare, at a European level, the methods already developed in these two fields, pool experience, and promote coordination between educational authorities and radio and television experts. Many kinds of research can be useful to the assessment of needs, but special stress should be put on the study of society, culture, and personality in one system of interdependent relations, functions, and values. Research into evaluation of radio and television programs must have as its aim to make sure that the needs met have been correctly assessed, that the means employed for meeting needs are the best, that targets have been reached, and that the operation is warranted in terms of cost-effectiveness. There is need for a pilot project, at national and international levels, on evaluation of the results of a series of experimental educational television programs. (EB)
