1970 National Institute on Instructional Television and Adult Basic Education. Final Narrative Report.
Baker, James P.
Activities conducted under a grant from the Division of Adult Education Programs, U.S.O.E., are reported on. The Project included the 1970 National Institute on Instructional Television and Adult Basic Education and a variety of pre-Institute activities and post-Institute follow-up activities. State Directors of Adult Basic Education or their equivalent in all 50 states were asked to send teams of two to four persons from their states. The faculty for the Institute was selected for its expertise in specific areas, as well as for its general ability to work well together in conducting an effective, consistent and meaningful program. The Institute lasted three weeks, with the first week focused on each professional group learning about the other's professional field. The second week and early portions of the third week were devoted to script preparation and actual production of television programs. At the end of the third week the teams developed goals for the utilization of television in their back-home situations. Follow-up activities were conducted. The Institute was judged a success as a result of both formal and informal evaluation procedures. (Author/CK)
