Teaching and Learning. An Introduction to New Methods and Resources in Higher Education.
MacKenzie, Norman; And Others
Proceeding at a different rate in each country, a world movement toward mass higher education is taking place. For this reason, attention should be given to the teaching-learning process in universities and to media innovations. The latter include television, language laboratories, teaching machines, electronic response systems, reprographic devices, dial access devices, computers, and Electronic Video Recording (EVR). These new media can be used as aids to the presentation process, to demonstration, to the solution of logistic problems, to interaction in the teaching-learning process, and to the assessment process. However, the case for new media is only one element of the larger case for new methods in teaching and learning. The new methods are concerned with the clarification of objectives, with evaluation, and with the design of learning situations. Problems arising in these procedures can be solved systematically in the unit of teaching called the "course." Production of new learning materials for course development is associated with problems and issues that universities need to decide upon. Universities also need to consider building design, library facilities, and the use of psychologists and educationists as consultants. (MF)
