Telecommunications in Teacher Education: Closing the Gap between University and Extension Programs.
Pultorak, Ed; And Others
This study was undertaken for the purpose of investigating the use of telecommunications for extension courses in teacher education programs. Specific inquiry was focused on two areas: current use (Part I) and equipment/delivery (Part II). Part I has focus on cost per student, types of extension courses, effect of geographic location, and success rate. Part II has focus on interactiveness, multimedia equipment, need for classroom facilitators, special methods for electing instructors, recommended instructional methods, and common problems. The study population consisted of 11 institutions with reputations of having successful extension programs delivered via telecommunications. Because of increased enrollment potential, institutions of higher education should find results valuable. This paper includes the survey instrument, responses to each question, and an analysis of the findings. (Author)
