Adult Learning Strategies and Approaches (ALSA). Resources for Teachers of Adults. A Handbook of Practical Advice on Audio-Visual Aids and Educational Technology for Tutors and Organisers.
Cummins, John; And Others
This handbook is part of a British series of publications written for part-time tutors, volunteers, organizers, and trainers in the adult continuing education and training sectors. It offers practical advice on audiovisual aids and educational technology for tutors and organizers. The first chapter discusses how one learns. Chapter 2 addresses how to become conversant with the wide variety of resources available, course design, and design and development of instructional materials. Chapter 3 looks at ways to present graphic material to the class. It considers basic lettering and drawing techniques and concentrates on the more traditional and commonly used visual aids--chalkboards and pinboards, charts and posters, and materials prepared for display in other forms. Chapter 4 on reprographics discusses ways of producing multiple copies. Chapter 5 on projection focuses on enlarging the material. Overhead projectors, slide projectors, film strip projectors, episcopes, and cine film projectors are covered. Recorded sound is the focus of Chapter 6. Chapter 7 is a guide to using video in the classroom and discusses film making. Chapter 8 offers pointers on computer-assisted learning. Sources of additional information are provided. A note of caution in the use of audiovisual aids is given in chapter 9. Chapter 10 lists further reading resources and useful addresses. (YLB)
