An Evaluation of the Educational Telephone Network (ETN) as an Instructional Delivery System for a Graduate Course in Career Education.
Ristau, Robert A.
This report describes a program of extension classes which enrolled 164 teachers, administrators, and counselors from Wisconsin schools for a University of Wisconsin graduate extension course. Professional advancement and assistance in developing career educational programs were the primary objectives of most of the enrollees. During the fall semester the course was taught using the Educational Telephone Network (ETN) statewide facilities with interface sessions which brought several local ETN groups together for the ETN class presentation and discussion throughout the semester. In rating the course, nearly half the students evaluated it as equal to or better than the traditionally taught extension courses. The quality of work the students accomplished appeared to be excellent and objective examinations indicated a good overall level of achievement. The career education opinionnaire, administered twice to all enrollees, indicated significant favorable shifts of attitudes toward, and knowledge of career education as well as better understanding of their roles in its programs. Recommendations based on these data were made that the ETN facilities be used throughout the State and be improved qualitatively and quantitatively for that purpose, and that local group leaders be provided with special training to enhance their effectiveness.
