Doctoral Program in Audio-Visual Communication Research. Final Report.
Jwaideh, Alice R.
Program objectives may be summarized as follows: (1) to provide an opportunity for outstanding students to become trained in research through participation in a doctoral program having a special emphasis on audiovisual communication; (2) to produce persons trained in the research skills that are essential for the development, implementation, and evaluation of instructional systems and materials; (3) to produce graduates who are prepared to conduct research, participate in research and development programs, and direct and train others engaged in such activities; and (4) to ensure that each student becomes personally involved with one or more faculty members in designing and conducting carefully controlled, theoretically based research on problems significant to instructional development and communications. To accomplish the objectives, trainees were required to take courses in behavioral science content and methodology; research design; techniques of measurement, quantitative analysis, system design and analysis, and computer utilization. Program success was due in part to staff capabilities, the high caliber of student participation, and the individualized practicum experiences. (WCM)
