Training for Mass Communication.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
Based on papers and discussions of training experts at the UNESCO Seminar on Instructional Training Techniques for Broadcasters held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in June, 1973, this report surveys in general terms the present situation of communications training, pinpoints deficiencies, and identifies potential trends. This is followed by other reports dealing more specifically with such topics as training methodology, curricula, and surveys of training materials and resources. Emphasis is placed on the modular approach to instruction, in which the course is composed of clearly defined learning modules presented in a standard format of objectives, content, methods, and evaluation. A sample learning module on monochrome television pictures is provided, along with a list of educational television (ETV) training modules. To provide more standardization between nations, an action program is proposed to coordinate the efforts of international, bilateral, and private organizations. (Author/SL)
