Research and Development in Commercial Television Programming for Children Implications for Education by Marjorie Kaplan( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research and development process in the children's commercial television programming industry is examined to determine possible applications to educational research and development. The children's commercial television industry's research and development model usually consists of the following phases: research (market analysis); preliminary development; marketing; product development; production; dissemination; and evaluation. The research phase is basically non-empirical, and generally represents an assessment of market demands and network programming needs. Experts on children are sometimes, but not always, consulted. It is suggested that: (1) there is a need to research the substance of moral and social messages (overt and covert), and to define the attributes of the product which capture and hold the attention of children; (2) educational development might benefit from the style of management found in the children's commercial television industry, in which an executive producer, with both technical and managerial competence, oversees all phases of development, marketing and production; and (3) more emphasis should be placed on assessment of market, consumer and interest group wants and needs when determining the substance and type of educational products to be developed.

Climate change curricula for adult audiences in agriculture and forestry-- a review( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Agricultural and forestry advisers and other technical service providers play an important role in supporting farmers and foresters to adapt to climate change. However, not all agricultural and forestry advisers are comfortable talking about climate change with land managers. While there is a demonstrated interest related to climate-related professional development, few examples of curricula developed with the express purpose of serving this audience and a systematic review of these curricula has not been conducted. To address this gap, we reviewed 12 curricula which were developed and implemented between 2001 and 2017. The goal of this review is to apply the lessons learned from a range of climate change-focused curricula to new, regionally or sector-specific educational programs targeting both agricultural advisers and innovative farmers. Our findings suggest that developers of future educational programs consider the following: (a) the specific needs of their audience, including topical interests and learning needs; (b) the use of interdisciplinary teams for curricula development; (c) trade-offs associated with inclusivity and depth of course content; and (d) the advantages of project-based education approaches suited for adult learning audiences. By applying these concepts to future curricula, these curricula are likely to have the greatest level of impact."
