National Conference on the Use of Audiovisuals in Medical Education, Proceedings (University of Alabama Medical Center, Birmingham, August 6-8, 1969).
Alabama Univ., Birmingham. Medical Center.
The 39 medical educators attended a 2-day conference to resolve some of the disparity which exists in the knowledge and utilization of audiovisual aids and to define the role of learning resource centers. Major presentations were: (1) "The Continuing Confusion in Communications" by J.F. Wolker, (2) "Visual Systems: Pro and Con" by R.S. Craig, (3) "Application of Audiovisual Technology in Medical Education" by N.L. Cole, (4) "Concepts in Communication: A Multi-Screen Presentation" by E.W. Murphy and J.W. Parker, and (5) "Standardization: The Manufacturer's Viewpoint" by R.H. Bell and M. Waterbor. In addition, four panel discussions were held on the topics of Basic Science Education and Audiovisuals, The Use of Audiovisuals in Clinical Teaching, Hospitals, and Meeting the Needs of Continuing Education. Participants recommended that a national resource center be established to serve as a repository for information about available audiovisuals. Further, opportunities should be provided for identifying learner needs and wants and for defining teaching objectives. Finally, educators must exert leadership in setting up standards and guidelines for selection and utilization of audiovisual media. (SB)
