Deaf Education Using Interactive Television.
Luetke-Stahlman, Barbara
This paper evaluates the use of interactive video for teaching graduate-level deaf education courses. Graduate students in teacher education, including 10 urban and 3 rural students, were enrolled in 2 different off-campus courses taught from the University of Kansas. Students in both classes responded to a survey near the end of the course and to a postcourse survey. In both 15-week courses, interactive video instruction was initiated in the 12th week. Instructors responded to a similar survey. The following year, rural students enrolled in one of the same interactive video courses responded to a postcourse survey. Students generally agreed that the camera and monitor were not distracting and did not make them feel self-conscious, that asking questions during class was not difficult, that the professor didn't spend too much time attending to the other group, that audiovisual materials were presented adequately, and that concentrating was not difficult. Rural students changed their opinions about the use of interactive video in a positive direction in a short time. Responses to the instructor's survey were favorable and demonstrated high agreement between the two instructors. This study concludes that the use of interactive video was successful in offering deaf education graduate courses to students who otherwise would not have the opportunity to enroll in graduate courses. Contains survey results. (LP)
