Dissemination, Utilization, and Assessment Project. Final Report.
Cline, Hugh F.; And Others
This paper reports the results emanating from the Dissemination, Utilization, and Assessment (DUA) project. Designed to shed light on factors that might facilitate or impede more effective and extensive use of audiovisual materials in higher education, this 3-year project focused on the use of the audiovisual materials produced by Annenberg/CPB. The first of four chapters provides background information and an introduction, including a description of the project origin, design, and methodology. The second chapter describes each of the five sites--i.e., Atlanta, Georgia; Amherst, Massachusetts; University of South Florida; Washington State Community Colleges; the University of Wisconsin System--and the institutions of higher education that participated in the project. The results of the study are presented in the third chapter, including the amount and nature of materials used by each institutional site, and the ways in which the materials were used. (Data showed that most of the higher education institutions used the materials to supplement instruction rather than as the primary method of instructional presentation.) The fourth chapter presents a summary of project findings and conclusions. A copy of use study questionnaire is appended. (DB)
