Media Manpower for the 70's: II. Media Specialist Projects 1970-71. A Report of the Leadership Training Institute.
Martinson, John L., Ed.
The annual report of the Media Specialist Program briefly traces the history of the Leadership Training Institute (LTI) and its relationship to the Media Specialist Program. The main body of the report is devoted to the current activities of the Media Specialist Program. Fifteen projects funded during 1970-71 are reported. Seven of these projects were specifically designed to help the disadvantaged, eight employed a strong multiplier strategy, ten were structured around some sort of consortium plan which involved more than one institution, and five projects were oriented toward paraprofessional and technical areas. (Obviously, more than one priority emphasis was present in some projects.) Sample projects include: an interdisciplinary approach involving the areas of administration, teaching methodology, supervision, library science, curriculum, and educational technology; an interrelated program which combined formal coursework with field experiences in three selected urban school districts; a series of six three-week institutes to extend the acknowledged competencies in the organization of management of print materials of certificated librarians to include audiovisual materials.
