Use of Media in Library Use Instruction.
This document identifies situations in which the use of nonprint media is effective in library instruction programs. Two points are emphasized throughout the document: the use of sophisticated and expensive media is not crucial to the success of a library instruction program, and effective use of media in library instruction involves careful planning and preparation. Among the advantages identified in using media effectively are: the ability to reach a large audience; the extension of influence of quality instruction; the ability to overcome time and space limitations; and the ability to create special effects to enhance learning. Following a general discussion of the use and advantages of media, the paper discusses in turn each of 10 steps involved in the instructional development process: (1) needs assessment; (2) solution selection; (3) analysis of task and content; (4) development of instructional objectives; (5) selection and sequencing of instructional strategies; (6) selection of media; (7) development and location of necessary resources; (8) tryout and evaluation; (9) revision/recycle; and (10) social aspects. A 26-item reference list is included. (THC)
