Description
Photographs documenting a conference held at Stanford University in late July and early August, 1966. The conference, on new teaching aids, was the result of a previous conference held at the MIT Science Teaching Center in March 1966 sponsored by the Advisory Council. At that time, it became apparent that very recent technological developments in the audio-visuals industry had made available relatively inexpensive, especially reliable, and uncommonly easy to operate film projectors, portable videotape recorders and other hardware, all of which appeared to offer unusual potential for improving college chemistry instruction. Because most participants at the MIT conference were unfamiliar with the new hardware and its potential, it was suggested that a rather detailed summary of these new developments and of their applications to chemistry instruction be prepared and made available to college chemistry teachers.
