In this presentation Dr. Norm Friesen provides a short but broad history of the
textbook as a “multimedia” pedagogical and cultural form. In doing so, he situates the
textbook in the context of changing instructional methods and practices, and
demonstrates the importance of both oral and diagrammatic —as well as textual
— forms of communication to this history. Friesen also argues that instructional forms
and practices associated with the textbook have neither progressed along with new
technologies nor gradually evolved as the psychological sciences have developed.
Instead, he shows how these forms and practices have changed in general
synchrony with larger cultural and epistemological developments.

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
