Proceedings of the 1975 NASILP Conference.
Neville, Edwin L., Jr., Ed.
This was a working conference designed to elucidate the practical applications and benefits of self-instructional language programs and to point out what not to do as well as how to run a program for colleges and universities who would like to begin language instruction in one or more of 29 languages available through NASILP. It was also geared to the needs of Campus Directors of existing self-instructional language programs by calling attention to new developments in audiovisual methods in language instruction and stressing quality and credibility in maintaining or raising standards. The proceedings contain papers from three workshops on the Examiner, the Program Director, and the Learning Center. The Panel of Examiners included Eleanor Jorden in Japanese and Jim Gair in Hindi from Cornell University, Edna Coffin in Hebrew from the University of Michigan, and Walter Lagerway in Dutch from Calvin College. The Panel of Program Directors presented case studies of how self-instructional language programs had been administered at three colleges: The University of Tennessee, Skidmore College and Warren Wilson College. The Learning Center session projected conceptually what a Learning Center is and how a self-instructional language program fits snugly into its operation. It was moderated by the Audio-Visual Director of California State University at Chico. Also included are brief addresses presented at the dinner meeting by Ward Morehouse and Peter Boyd-Bowman, as well as pertinent excerpts from the business meeting and a list of registrants.
