Proposal for the New Language Media Laboratory in Clemens Hall, Amherst Campus.
Loew, Richard S.
The language media laboratory described in this proposal is intended to provide for the implementation of broader instructional objectives than language laboratories of previous years, including the dial access type. The proposal is divided into three main sections: (1) program rationale; (2) programs and services; and (3) design of the language media laboratory. The first section compares the dial access and the language media laboratories, with emphasis on the opportunity the latter offers for development of communication skills. The second part treats the function of the language media laboratory, the use of space, curriculum development, tests and tapes, testing, films, cassettes, and shortwave radio. Part three presents the proposed design of the laboratory including descriptions of the classrooms, studios, and libraries. Included in the appendices are documents representing research, department requirements and recommendations, program descriptions, a resource reference guide, and floor plans for the language media laboratory.
