Training and Evaluation Strategies for Teleconferencing.
Chute, Alan G.; Hancock, Burton W.
The faculty training strategy designed by the South Dakota Medical Information Exchange (SDMIX) staff implements principles of innovation and concern theory to facilitate the adoption of teleconferencing as an instructional medium. The goal of the workshop described is to provide faculty with the skills and experiences necessary for developing effective teleconferences. The first phase of the workshop provides participants with information pertaining to the effective design of a teleconference presentation and leads to the development of a 15-minute teleconference program. The second phase, which occurs 3 weeks later, is dedicated to the presentation and critique of the previously-developed teleconference programs from the first phase of the workshop. Results of previous workshop evaluations indicate that providing the participants with these workshop experiences reduced the concerns of faculty regarding teleconferencing. The SDMIX strategy for evaluating the effectiveness of teleconferencing involves collection of data for use in decision-making concerning the continuance, modification, or elimination of teleconferencing activities in South Dakota. This paper includes 15 references. (Author/LMM)
