The Report of the University Ad Hoc Committee on Instructional Media.
North Carolina Univ., Greensboro.
The University of North Carolina at Greensboro charged a committee with studying the needs of the university for special instructional media, surveying its existing resources in this area, and recommending a plan for coordination of use of instructional media. By and large, departments agreed that maintenance of existing equipment was an immediate problem. Also, faculty and students basically believed in the need for a campus film library, readily-available audiovisual equipment, and training in the use of media. Although a central facility was thought desirable by many, others feared that it would reduce accessibility and promote bureaucracy. The committee recommended that a coordinating agency for media services be established. Its functions would include: coordination of media services, equipment maintenance services, provision of hardware/software collections, consultant services and instructional development, production services, and telecommunication services. These programs would be implemented in three phases. Tentative budgets and survey questionnaires are included. (JK)
