J. H. NICHOLSON , Professor of Education at Armstrong College, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Though this important feature of the B.B.C.'s work has been in existence for five and a half years, there must be many who do not know exactly what it is. It is in essence this : There are a certain number of people who want to make the best use they can of the series of educational talks, and with this end in view, they meet each week under a leader to listen to the talks and discuss them afterwards. Since this feature was innovated, the B.B.C. has been experimenting with discussion groups. This experiment came to an end in July.
Beginning in October, three series of talks a week will be broadcast. They have been specially arranged to meet the needs of discussion groups. Professor Nicholson has played a prominent part in the movement during the past five years and is already well known to all those who have attended any of the B.B.C. summer schools for wireless group leaders. This evening he will discuss the value of group listening and will make some suggestions for the guidance of group leaders.
