Abstract

This case study on the development and presentation of a university course on a public television channel demonstrates some of the significant differences between a classroom course and a broadcast television course. The interaction between Simon Fraser University and British Columbia's Knowledge Network are described in the context of the course Perspectives on women: An Introduction to Womens Studies. The paper describes how public television influenced the course design, particularly those components of the course which had potential for controversy.
