Instructional Teleconferencing Models for Enhancing the Quality of Education.
Showalter, Robert G.; Showalter, Marietta B.
This compilation of models for the utilization of instructional teleconferencing begins with narrative information from the final report of the Inter-Institutional Instructional Teleconferencing for Indiana School Personnel Serving Handicapped Children Project, a collaborative venture undertaken by Purdue University and the Lafayette School Corporation to explore the application of the speaker telephone in continuing education. Descriptions of a speaker telephone-delivered graduate course and three 90-minute non-credit topical seminars on topics related to communication disabilities are included. Attached materials provide examples of instructional teleconferencing use in elementary and secondary education in the Lafayette School Corporation. These materials include newspaper articles on exemplary applications of the medium, a copy of an application for grant renewal, copies of two issues of the Educational Teleconferencing Newsletter, log sheets of speaker telephone activities, a checklist of procedures for using instructional teleconferencing, and a schedule of 1988 teleconferences for children in grades 1-5 with authors, illustrators, and others.
