Using Interactive Video To Teach Learning Theory to Undergraduates: Problems and Benefits.
Chapman, Ann D.
Recent advances in technology enable universities to radically expand traditional definitions of both "the classroom" and "distance learning." In this paper, one professor's initial experience using interactive video to teach learning theories to 29 undergraduate education students in 4 locations is analyzed. Class sizes at the individual sites ranged from 1 to 14. Data included the instructor's formal and informal notes, students' mid-term and final class evaluations, students' test grades, and students' work which assessed their ability to recognize the learning theory analyzing actual practices in live classrooms. Comparisons are made with the work of previous students in the instructor's traditional-classroom learning theory courses. Benefits and problems for both instructors and students are discussed and methods for overcoming problems are suggested. (Contains seven references.) (Author)
