Use of Videocassette Parent Interviews in Teaching Developmental Psychology.
Harper, Gregory F.; Silvestro, John R.
This paper describes an instructional improvement project which produced a series of eight 30-minute videocassettes and an observation guide focusing on the child rearing strategies of parents to provide undergraduate students in developmental psychology with greater understanding and empathy for the parenting role. Specific child development issues are highlighted in each of the tapes using an interview format, including: (1) expectant parent family; (2) adopted child family; (3) traditional family; (4) large family; (5) effects of divorce on children; (6) guiding adolescent growth; (7) the gifted child; and (8) the handicapped child. Development of the project, i.e., background, rationale, design and implementation, is discussed. Anticipated and achieved outcomes of the project are presented as well as the evaluation techniques and the evaluation results. A table showing evaluation results is included. (JAC)
