New Strategies in Adult Education: Using Television to Individualize Instruction.
Hammett, Hugh B.; Hooten, David E.
The thesis of this paper is that television can effectively disseminate information to adult learners, thereby freeing the instructor from repetitive tasks and allowing him to assume a facilitative, diagnostic, and consultative role for larger numbers of adult students on an individualized basis. Research data and an example of a mediated individualized study course from the authors' institution are used to indicate that television can be used in a non-dehumanizing way, while holding constant or improving academic achievement and student attitudes.
