Title: TOWARDS AN ANALYSIS OF INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION PRESENTATIONAL FORMS: A CASE STUDY
Abstract: "What is instructional television? There are two established responses to this question within the field of instructional technology. First, instructional researchers and designers have characterized instructional television as videotape recordings that are designed to achieve a specified learning objective, employ an instructional methodology that can be replicated, and can be validated as a sub-set of an instructional system. Second, television producers characterize instructional television in terms of the formal elements that comprise the format type. This dichotomy between instructional television designers and producers demonstrates a theoretical division between the knowledge base of each position. Instructional design develops the role of pedagogical principles in mediated instruction while media theory develops the role of television production, distribution, and reception. This inquiry attempts to advance the perspective of television producers by developing an analysis technique, based on media theories of aesthetics and culture, to help inform television producers of the various formal elements possible in the instructional television format.
