Quality in Instructional Television.
Schramm, Wilbur, Ed.
The result of an interdisciplinary conference on the qualities of an effective instructional television program, this book reports the ideas of various participants. Two papers by broadcasters represent the producer's view of ITV; one deals with instructional television in Sweden and the other with a Nigerian project. The scholar's view is represented by two papers which consider the evidence about some instructional television techniques and its effectiveness. The two papers which comprise the section on combining production and research consider the problem in the light of experiences with "Sesame Street" and "Electric Company." The section on alternatives to television discusses the application of less complex instructional technologies and some of the "smaller" media. Finally, the common ground among these various points of view is summarized. (SH)
