TEACHING LIBRARY SCIENCE TO ADULTS THROUGH COMPUTER GRAPHICS

R. Yu

Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HONG KONG)
This article purports to investigate how far computer graphics can be used in an adult classroom for motivation of learning and concept teaching. Empirical data will be drawn from action research on four groups of FES Church Librarian Certificate Course students in Hong Kong. Various kinds of graphics had been used to deliver certain kinds of subject matters. Remaining parts of the lectures were presented in text only. The author tries to explore if there are any differences between learning with graphics and text.

Learning outcomes have been evaluated through classroom observation, questionnaires, assignments, and tests. Experimental research methods will be employed for the study. The main purpose is to find out and compare any changes in students’ knowledge in library science before and after the lectures. The analyzed results will shade light on the effectiveness of using computer graphics to motivate adults to learn as well as to help them get concepts in particular subject areas.
