How To Modernize Teaching at the Technical Universities?
Ciganek, Jindoich; Osner, Zdenik
Students coming at present to technical universities are accustomed to television and the visual perception is their prime source of information. This is why our civilization is being often labeled as the "civilization of picture". The contemporary psycho-physiological researches, along with the Dale's cone of human perception, also confirm an incomparably higher level of effectiveness with the visual perception. The actual way of university teaching, however, hardly reflects these facts. This is why it often becomes boring, unattractive and ineffective, as far as the students are concerned. On the other hand, one should not overestimate the enhanced of the visual perception in the teaching process, because it also carries bottlenecks and limitation. Its overdosing could even bring negative effects. The author, after having been for 15 years a manager at the audio-visual university center, will present his life-long experience in application of the audio-visual forms of teaching at the technical universities, with all the prospects and limitations, pluses and minuses thereof. He will also deal with the economical side of the problem and with the programmed teaching. He outlines the principles of a rational and effective use of the didactic techniques in the university teaching process. (Author)
