Improved Teaching Excellence by Using Tutored Video Instruction: An Australian Case Study.
Appleton, A. S.; And Others
This paper describes the Tutored Video Instruction (TVI) technique, which uses videotaped lectures and student interaction in the presence of a tutor for instruction to small groups at branch campuses of the Capricornia Institute of Advanced Education (Australia). The development and operation of TVI, including staff briefing and preparation, production of the videotapes, and the role of the tutor, are covered. Costs of the system are presented, and staff and tutor reactions to the use of TVI are discussed. Student performance with TVI at branch campuses is compared with the performance of main campus students in the same subjects. Data on student reasons for enrolling at a branch campus, their reactions to the use of TVI, and their perceptions of the quality of the system are summarized. Based on analyses of the data, the following conclusions are offered: (1) TVI is cost effective if branch campus students progress to the main campus; (2) branch campus students were generally positive about TVI although it is not their preferred mode of delivery; (3) staff reactions to the use of TVI were positive; and (4) use of this technique may lead to an improvement in the quality of lecture delivery and student flexibility of learning. Six references are listed. (Author/MES)
