E.B.U. International Conference on Educational Radio and Television (3rd, Paris, March 8-22, 1967).
Office de Radiodiffusion-Television Francaise, Paris (France).
A conference dealing with the problems and activities of open-circuit educational radio and television broadcasting on five continents, especially in the developing nations, was organized by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) in Paris in 1967. Technological change, especially the development of reasonably priced videotape equipment, was cited as being particularly important to the growth of educational broadcasting. The need for the integration of media with educational systems was noted. Four commissions, formed to deal with different areas of interest to the Conference, conducted eight day preliminary seminars and presented final reports at the plenary sessions. The first commission discussed and summarized teaching situations and methods, programs and production, and the professional duties and training of specialists. The second examined the integration of radio and television with educational and government planning. The third commission studied international coproduction and distribution of programs, as well as satellite transmission. The fourth explored the needs and uses of research in educational broadcasting. Listed in the report of the proceedings are a glossary, the conference participants, organizations represented, and the programs presented. (RP)
