Scope and Contents
Photographs documenting a conference held at Stanford University in late July and early
August, 1963. The conference, on new teaching aids, was the result of a previous
conference held at the MIT Science Teaching Center in March 1963 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.
