TV program, TRIZ theory, national security, awareness


This study aimed to identify the effect of designing a program in the Jordanian Television based on the theory of "TRIZ" in raising awareness of national security among Jordanian university students. Arandom cluster sample of (1006) students at the undergraduate level was selected for the academic year (2020-2021), and a questionnaire distributed in six public and private universities in three regions:the Center, North, and South. Through the experimental approach, results showed that the Television program has a great impact in raising awareness of national security in all six dimensions; political, economic, social, military, geopolitical and cyber security. The level of awareness of national security among Jordanian university students was medium before watching the TV program, and it became high after watching the program, and the level of awareness of national security in political, economic, military and social dimensions was similar between the two genders, while the level of awareness of the national geopolitical and cybernetics security of female students was higher than that of male students. The study found that there is no moral difference in the level of awareness of national security in all dimensions according to the difference in the student’s majors. In addition, the awareness of national security in all dimensions was similar for all students at different academic levels..
