Media in the College Classroom
Over the last two decades, instructional media became an integral part of the pedagogical landscape. And research has shown that audiovisuals can improve learning. Advanced studies are investigating how media may be used to stimulate critical thinking and help students develop a cognitive framework for course material. Whether you are technologically adept or a neophyte, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's Center for Teaching and Learning has prepared suggestions and reflections on the uses of media in the college classroom. "For Your Consideration ..." (FYC) # 11 discusses the potential uses and the benefits of various media in the classroom, how to use such media, and what to do when the classroom lacks the proper equipment.
