Model of a Community Radio for Non-Formal Learning at Higher Education
A Model of a Community Radio for Non-Formal Learning at Higher Education The purposes of this study are: 1) to investigate the problems of community radio for informal education in higher education, 2) to develop the model of the local radio station for higher education, and 3) to assess the model of the local radio station for higher education. To design the model, the documents and related research studies had been analyzed and synthesized. Furthermore, a questionnaire and in-depth interview techniques were also used to collect the data from a sample group. A sample group comprised of 21 Community radio station executives, 86 Community radio service providers, a group of 10 experts from 22 different higher education institutes, 21 Community radio station staff, and 15 Community radio station executives working in higher education. The results indicated that the problems of a community radio were consisted of unclear and lack of vision, organization’s mission, structure and administration. Therefore, all of the aspects mentioned could be led to the insufficient management. In addition, the models of Community radio stations for higher education were (MEDIA B ONE) M-management, E-education, D-directing, I-information, A-analyzing, B-budgeting, O-organization, Nnetwork, E-evaluation. The level of the model of a community radio for informal learning stands high ( X = 0.98) Additionally, the appropriateness of the model of a community radio for informal learning in higher education was adequate and acceptable, and had a high potential level (X = 4.37). Accordingly, the model could be applied and continued to other missions.
