Heading for Change: A Background Work-Book for the Harlech Television and University of Bristol Institute of Education Series. Supplement, Heading for Change: A Report.
A series of eight television programs was prepared by Harlech Television and the University of Bristol Institute of Education. Its purpose was to stimulate discussion of the human relations and management issues that arise in connection with innovation and change in the secondary school. The programs dealt with problems of size and change; tracking and grouping; team teaching and multi-media approaches; curriculum development; home/school relationships; counselling and guidance; school dropouts; and the roles of the headmaster and staff in planning and evaluation. Viewing groups were set up to encourage discussion. A workbook was provided which presented a group of letters and memos from the files of a hypothetical secondary school, background notes on the content of the programs, extracts from books and articles, and some suggestions for further reading. The multimedia package was designed to allow staff members to become acquainted with some of the changes in educational thinking and to discuss ways in which they might be useful at their particular school. The result of a survey of the viewers is tabulated. (JY)
