AIM: From Concept to Reality. The Articulated Instructional Media Program at Wisconsin. Notes and Essays on Education for Adults, No.61.
Wedemeyer, Charles A.; Najem, Robert E.
This report attempts to assess Articulated Instructional Media (AIM), a special degree program for adults which existed from 1964-68 at the University of Wisconsin. During 1964-66 a special sequence of interdisciplinary advanced courses in humanities, social studies, and the sciences were developed, which were an expansion of the school's residence freshman-sophomore Integrated Liberal Studies Program. The courses were offered through combination short sessions, off-campus seminars, and independent study, amplified by telelectures, radio-television, programed material, and mobile laboratories and libraries. In 1966, AIM became part of University Extension, and restricted its service to consulting on the articulated use of media. The entire program was also used as a catalyst for change throughout the university to encourage professors to incorporate multimedia teaching techniques into their courses. (se)
