The Educational Media and Technology Yearbook (EMTY) is designed to provide media and instructional technology professionals with an up-to-date, single-source overview and assessment of the field of educational technology. Each volume offers organized access to the hot topics, trends, issues, and advancements in the field, with comprehensive coverage of developments in theory, hardware, software, dissemination, applications, organizations, and delivery systems. EMTY 1994 is divided into eight parts. Part 1 focuses on trends and issues and includes articles that address the definition of instructional technology and current literature. Part 2 covers the profession as a whole, including seven articles that discuss new curriculum developments, research and development, and criticism. Current developments in the field, such as networking, alternative assessment, school-university partnerships, and telecommunications are discussed in part 3. Part 4 presents leadership profiles of Carolyn Guss and Mendel Sherman. Part 5 provides reports from seven professional organizations. Several hundred pertinent organizations are listed in the annotated entries of Part 6. Part 7 covers graduate programs, scholarships, fellowships, and awards currently available in the field. Finally, Part 8 contains a resource list of media-related books, journals, articles, and ERIC documents. An index is provided. (MES)
