The following topics are addressed: concepts and functions of audiovisual materials usage, how to avoid dry and dull presentations, summarizing instruction using audiovisuals, getting to the point using audiovisuals, and relating course materials to real life situations using audiovisuals. The following functions of audiovisual technology are discussed to illustrate how audiovisual technology can be implemented to improve teaching: overcome physical limitations, stimulate interest, establish cues for learning, elicit student response, direct student response, provide a common point of reference, provide meaningful information, relate abstracts to concrete objects, extend human experience, stimulate problem solving, and provide diagnostic and remedial tools. The use of video or audio tapes, conference telephone, and games and simulations are discussed. (SW)
