How To Produce Audio Materials. Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, 15.
A sequel to the booklet "A Review of the Different Types of Instructional Materials Available to Teachers and Lecturers," this booklet begins by looking at how audio materials can be used in different types of instructional situations, i.e., mass instruction, individualized learning, and group learning. The basic principles of sound recording and editing are then presented, including: (1) how sound is recorded on audiotape; (2) the equipment needed for audiotape recording, such as various types of microphones and tape recorders; (3) different types of tape; (4) general rules for making a recording; (5) methods for editing tapes; and (6) producing duplicates and multiple copies of tapes. The booklet concludes by presenting guidelines for designing and producing audio materials for specific instructional purposes, which may be categorized as illustrative/background, expository, management-of-learning, or interactive. An annotated list of three items recommended for further reading is included. (MES)
