Abstract

The intention of this project was to develop an Audio-Visual Career Information Package consisting of six synchronized slide-tape presentations dealing with educational and occupational information. In particular, the project developed overview materials concerning careers available upon completion of a Bachelor's Degree in the Arts, Commerce, Education, Engineering, the Sciences and Social Work. -- The project was undertaken in response to a need, both perceived and documented, for the development of locally relevant, up-to-date career information in the province. The materials were intended for use by students in secondary and post-secondary educational institutions and other individuals interested in pursuing a career upon completion of a Bachelor's Degree in one of the above mentioned areas. -- The first step in the project was to review audio and/or visual materials available locally; next, a review of the literature was undertaken to determine the type of information considered essential by career information theorists for inclusion in a career information presentation; finally a literature search was conducted to determine the efficacy of presenting career information in an audiovisual format. -- Upon completion of the research, six scripts were prepared utilizing information from numerous printed sources, and from a series of ninety-seven audio taped interviews with university graduates in a variety of occupational fields. Members of various departments at Memorial University of Newfoundland were consulted to verify the accuracy of information. -- The final portion of the project involved the photographing of a large number of occupational scenes, and the selection, from a number of slides, of suitably matching scenes. -- The audio and visual portions of each presentation were then set up with graphics and synchronized into six final products. -- These materials, which were designed for use with individuals or with small groups or classrooms have been made available to the Department of Education, Instructional Materials Division, for reproduction and dissemination to the high schools in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
