Television melodrama and morality dramas are examined in terms of the truthfulness and fallibility of the characters.

Aspen notebook: cable and continuing education by Richard Adler( Book )

13 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first of a planned series of Aspen Notebooks on cable television (catv). Part I reports on research conducted by the Aspen Workshop on Uses of the Cable. It describes the status of continuing education and the history of educational television and explores the prospects created by cable's development for extending access to continuing education. Also discussed are problems which require resolution if such enterprises are to succeed. Each chapter is followed by remarks from participants in the Aspen Workshop Conference on the Cable and Continuing Education, held in March 1973 at Aspen, Colorado. A final chapter summarizes proposals from that conference and offers recommendations for local and national initiatives for using cable in continuing education. Part ii contains source and reference materials for the subjects discussed in Part I. It presents descriptions of three television-supported educational programs--one well-established, one new and one hypothetical--and offers an explanation by James Gibbons of the criteria for successful educational uses of television. Also included are abstracts of related reports, a brief glossary of terms and an annotated bibliography. (Pb)

The electronic box office: humanities and arts on the cable by Richard Adler( Book )

6 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of essays examines the potential of cable television (catv) for increasing the diversity and quality of television programing. Specifically, they explore what an electronic box office could do to encourage new production sources and develop new mechanisms for distributing programing in the humanities and performaing arts. The introduction sets the subject in the context of the change in technology and its social impact and the first essay surveys the current state of cultural programing and cable's potential for increased diversity. The second essay reviews the history and present status of pay services while the third contends that the development of a non-profit electronic box office would expand access to the performaing arts. The essay which follows extends this argument by offering the claim that such an electronic box office would move the performing arts toward direct consumer support. The last paper in the series reports on the alternative television movement and its new models for television production. The book concludes with a report of the Aspen conference held in August of 1973 on the humanities and arts in cable television. (Author)

Information literacy : advancing opportunities for learning in the digital age : a report of the Aspen Institute Forum on Communications and Society by Richard Adler( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is an informed observer's interpretation of the discussions that took place at the 1998 annual meeting of the Aspen Institute's Forum on Communications and Society (focas). It summarizes the inquiry made by focas members into the many issues surrounding information literacy, including what information literacy is, why we need an information literate society, measuring information literacy, and how schools, business, and governments can work together to promote information literacy. Following the summary of deliberations, the report outlines six initiatives suggested by focas members that might be developed further to advance the cause of information literacy. The proposed initiatives include: (1) take idea leadership to promote awareness of information literacy; (2) assess and hold educators and political leaders at all levels accountable for students' proficiency in information literacy; (3) give teachers the preparation and support they need to do a better job; (4) involve parents more deeply in their children's education; (5) develop a dramatically different technology-based educational alternative; and (6) increase funding for research in education and information literacy. The appendix includes an "Information Literacy Background Paper," a list of conference participants, author biographies, and a brief description of the Aspen Institute Communications and Society Program.
