Training of Personnel for Educational Television. Initial Report.
Soifer, Jack; And Others
The Brazilian government, recognizing the benefits to be gained from instructional television (ITV), established the Advanced System of Educational Technologies (SATE). SATE conducted a study of educational television in Brazil in order to determine the actual needs for trained ITV personnel and, using these results, devised a training program. A review of ITV programing in Brazil supported their forecast that a production capacity of 24.5 hours of new programs per week was possible by 1972 utilizing the existing or planned ITV centers. The recommended size, composition, and function of ITV production teams was defined. The profected production capacity coupled with the recommended ITV team formed the basis for an estimate of personnel needs. Two training programs were then projected: one which would permit upgrading the skills of existing personnel and one which would not. A survey of existing training facilities and personnel showed that suitable physical facilities were available but that international cooperation would be necessary to staff and fund the training program, especially in its initial stages. The entering capacilities of trainees were identified and the costs involved in the training program were estimated. (JY)
