Aspen Notebook: Cable and Continuing Education.
Adler, Richard; Baer, Walter S.
This is the first of a planned series of Aspen Notebooks on cable television (CATV). Part I reports on research conducted by the Aspen Workshop on Uses of the Cable. It describes the status of continuing education and the history of educational television and explores the prospects created by cable's development for extending access to continuing education. Also discussed are problems which require resolution if such enterprises are to succeed. Each chapter is followed by remarks from participants in the Aspen Workshop Conference on the Cable and Continuing Education, held in March 1973 at Aspen, Colorado. A final chapter summarizes proposals from that conference and offers recommendations for local and national initiatives for using cable in continuing education. Part II contains source and reference materials for the subjects discussed in Part I. It presents descriptions of three television-supported educational programs--one well-established, one new and one hypothetical--and offers an explanation by James Gibbons of the criteria for successful educational uses of television. Also included are abstracts of related reports, a brief glossary of terms and an annotated bibliography. (PB)
