Media Education. A Report on the Media Education Conference Jointly Held by the Scottish Film Council, Jordanhill College of Education, and the Scottish Council for Educational Technology (Dowanhill, Glasgow, November 29, 1980).
Cowle, Kevin, Ed.
These proceedings include papers presented and summarize information and ideas exchanged by teachers and educators concerned with the development of media studies in all sectors of education in Scotland at a 1-day conference. The first part of the conference considered the nature and concept of media studies and the degree to which such studies could be carried out within the existing curricular structure. Following an introductory address by John Caughie, the participants discussed the questions brought up by the speaker in mixed seminar groups. The seminar groups also examined case studies related to their areas of interest and the summaries of these discussions are reported. The conference concluded with an open forum where delegates were invited to direct questions and comments arising from the day's deliberations to a panel of educationists with a particular interest in the development of media education. The appendix includes copies of the introductory paper and the three case studies that were presented in the seminar groups. (CHC)
