Baggaley, Jon, Ed.
The 11 papers in this collection focus on research in instructional television, the theme of a conference attended by media producers, researchers, and policy makers from Australia, Britain, Canada, France, West Germany, the Netherlands, South Africa, and the United States. The opening paper by Deane Hutton discusses two parallel but contrasting developments in educational television in Australia and indicates the role that future research may take in the development of television production. Subsequent papers by James Paluzzi and Erhard Heidt view the state of the art in television research from production and theoretical standpoints respectively. Other papers by Dolf Zillmann, Nikos Metallinos, and Claudette Davis discuss experimental investigations or particular television production techniques such as humor and camera angle, and Gary Coldevin reviews the wide range of practical guidelines now emerging from such research. In the remaining papers, Keith Mielke and Milton Chen describe the research and development of a major new educational series by the Children's Television Workshop in New York, and Charles Callanan and Joan Kaller discuss pioneering ideas in stereophonic television and community narrow-casting. A list of conference participants is included. (Author/LMM)
