Issues in Television-Centered Instruction.
Richardson, Penelope L.
Current research on the adult learner and on instruction through media has grave flaws, and reviews of research in five areas are needed to assist instructional developers and adopters in making wise decisions. These include a critical analysis of existing telecourse packages, as well as reviews of research on the motivation of various subgroups of adults and the recruitment and retention strategies which are effective for them; instructional strategies effective for different subgroups of adult learners; the logistics and costs of alternative delivery technologies and the audiences they are likely to reach; and technical assistance and training needed by new adopters. Forty-three references are listed. (Author/LLS)
