Abstract

Using videotaped faculty interviews intercut with historical still photographs gleaned from a university’s archives, three researchers created a 41-minute historical digital documentary designed to illuminate the major evolutionary changes that one private, urban, liberal arts university’s education department had undergone during its formative and developmental years. Additionally, the authors investigated the efficacy and impact that this historical digital documentary had upon its department’s faculty and administrative staff who viewed and responded to it via a follow-up survey questionnaire. Results suggest that the digital documentary effectively conveyed the history of the department in an informative, clear, accurate, well-edited, and balanced fashion, successfully revealing the types of changes that took place in the evolution of its teacher-education program, with particular emphasis upon the 1970s, 80s, and 90s.
