An Institute for the Advanced Professional Preparation of Educational Media Specialists to Work in Schools, Teacher Training Institutions and Community Colleges. Final Report.
Witt, Paul W. F.; Miller, Elwood E.
A two year institute sought to prepare educational media specialists who would be experts in instructional development. As such, they would be able to: 1) apply systems analysis techniques to instructional problems; 2) evaluate and use instructional media; 3) design graphic instructional media; 4) evaluate teaching strategies and instructional materials; and 5) work effectively with teachers. Fifteen doctoral candidates in the Department of Instructional Development and Technology at Michigan State University enrolled in the institute, participating in a core seminar, working on task forces and undergoing guided field experience. Eight of the participants completed their Ph.D. degrees and the remainder were approaching completion. In addition, these individuals showed evidence of accepting responsible professional positions in the areas of educational media and technology or in instructional development. In the light of these facts, the program was judged to be successful and it was recommended that similar institutes be run in the future. (PB)
