The Relationship of Teacher Perceptions of a School's Audiovisual Climate to the Organizational Structure of its Media Program.
Miller, Paul David
The primary purpose of this study was to ascertain, through teacher perceptions of the audiovisual climate within a school, some of the factors which might affect the utilization of media in the teaching-learning process. The subjects of the study were 432 teachers in 50 secondary schools, and the audiovisual coordinators for the schools. The results of data analysis on the subjects' responses showed that: the unified media program produces no better audiovisual climate that a separate library and audiovisual program; schools with full time audiovisual coordinators have a superior climate to schools having a part-time coordinator; and part time audiovisual coordinators do not produce any better climate that coordinators with no released time. The background of the coordinator appears to be significant in producing a good audiovisual climate. This report reviews the related literature, describes the methods used in the study, analyzes the data, and summarizes the findings. A bibliography of books, periodicals, miscellaneous publications, and theses is appended, as well as some background material on the study itself. (JY)
