Traditional and Nontraditional Educational Elements Using Telecommunications.
Tinterow, Maurice M.
An instructional program was developed and implemented at Kansas State University to provide career advancement training for respiratory therapy aides and technicians who have had on-the-job training in clinical experience in the basic respiratory therapy skills. The program was implemented under the auspices of TELENET, the Kansas Regents Continuing Education Network, which is a teleconferencing delivery system based on the campus of Kansas State University at Manhattan, Kansas. The advantages of the program are that it provides for active participation by students and allows them to receive immediate feedback. In the respiratory training program, student involvement is increased by providing the students with detailed note-taking guides to be filled out during lectures, and with comprehensive bibliographies at the beginning and end of the course. From results of a survey, which was completed by 24 (67 percent) of those who completed the program during its first year of operation, the project staff concluded that the use of the TELENET delivery system enabled many individuals to receive training in respiratory therapy who would not otherwise have been able to receive it.
