Humanizing Telephone Based Instructional Programs.
Parker, Lorne A.; Baird, Marcia A.
The University of Wisconsin Extension has developed the technology and programing to deliver noncredit educational broadcasts via telephone to professional audiences in remote locations throughout the state. Research has shown two-way audio to be an effective educational medium, permitting feedback, discussion, resource sharing, and the sharing of instructors. The technique is most effective when delivered in 20 to 25 minute lectures and augmented by printed materials, audiovisual aids, and home visits. Initiating rapport and maintaining attention are problems, but they can be overcome by: (1) using a personalized approach; (2) employing varied teaching styles; and (3) evaluating the appropriateness of the mode of instruction.
