Radio Study Group Campaigns in the United Republic of Tanzania.
Grenholm, Lennart H.
A group study method was selected for Tanzanian educational radio campaigns based on the theory that adults are more motivated to learn when they are actively involved. Groups of approximately 12 adults and a group adviser followed the pattern of reading, listening, discussing, decision making, and action. The instructional materials used consisted of books, adviser's manuals, posters, and flip-over sets. Group training seminars were conducted to give the advisers an ample background. The Tanzanian program proved effective in motivating learning. The use of radio study campaigns constituted an inexpensive, efficient, and popular method of serving the country's commitment to rural education. (Author/DS)
