An Overview of the Scope and a Description of the Components of Man and Environment Television Learning System.
Kelly, J. Terence; McCabe, Robert H.
In recent years it has become increasingly apparent that the trend of man destroying nature must be reversed: comprehensive nationwide instructional programs introducing students to the fundamental issues associated with man living harmoniously in his environment are needed. In response to this need, a modularized environmental course was developed and slated to be televised during a 15-week semester in connection with Miami-Dade Junior College. The components of the course as a televised learning system included two 30-minute telecasts per week, a study guide, an instructional communication and feedback system called Teaching Information Processing System (TIPS), an open phone format program over radio, midterm and final examinations, and a textbook designed to support the program. Varied formats were also planned for the program, and some emphasis was placed on enrolling and identifying certain groups to take the course--school teachers and Girl Scout leaders, for example. Specific goals for the project were established, and plans devised for providing support for continual development of new curricula. (RH)
