The Investigation, Development, and Dissemination of Procedures and Techniques Helpful to Interinstitutional Use of Television and Related Media. Final Report.
Browne, Duff; Smith, Mary Howard
Committees were used to test the hypothesis that interinstitutional co-operation can facilitate more effective use of instructional media in higher education in the South. The principal areas of concern were (l) administrative arrangements for a regional cooperative program, (2) special problems of curriculum inherent in an interinstitutional program, and (3) procedures necessary for establishing high media standards and quality controls for an interinstitutional effort. The administrative study used interviews with university personnel as a basis for recommendations by a Southern Regional Education Board committee. Seven faculty committees worked on curriculum development, and a committee of academic and media experts worked on media standards. An evaluation panel concluded that cooperative regional programs should be established, that faculty committees can prepare a viable curriculum, and that maintenance of standards requires proper expectation, evaluation, revision, and use of aids. The panel recommended further national and regional study of standards of media utilization, alternate ways of financing, and decentralized versus centralized production. Appendices include full reports on curriculum development, specific problems, media standards, and the evaluation panel report. (JO)
