Orientation to Instructional Television for Faculties of Higher Education Institutions by Network ETV in Nebraska. A Study of Decision-Making for ETV Utilization. Final Report.
Pierce, M. Scheffel
A study by questionnaire attempted to identify the factors controlling the selection or non-selection of available resources in network-broadcast instructional television, and to identify the academic-administrative involvements of those officials--deans, chairmen, and teachers-making decisions on the use of instructional television. Those polled included twenty-six colleges, junior colleges and universities in the Nebraska Educational Television Council for Higher Education (NETCHE). The questionnaire investigated general attitudes toward ITV, the courses televised by NETCHE, and the supplementary instructional materials devised by NETCHE, and specific degrees of willingness to be involved in ITV programs. The results showed that the general use of instructional television is related primarily to its high quality when used as an adjunct to already established courses, and secondarily to the need to serve large numbers of students. No general continuum of attitudes according to academic position of those involved with selection of ITV use was identified. (BB)
