AN ANALYSIS OF THE RADIO-TELEVISION TRAINING PROGRAMS IN INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION.
HILL, WALKER H.
THIS STUDY IS AN EXPLORATION OF THE GENERAL CHARACTER AND VALIDITY OF PRESENT-DAY RADIO AND TELEVISION EDUCATION IN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES AS REPORTED BY REPRESENTATIVE GROUPS OF EDUCATORS, GRADUATES, AND BROADCASTERS. OF THE SEVEN OBJECTIVES REPORTED FOR TRAINING PROGRAMS, THE ONE MOST OFTEN STATES WAS "TO DEVELOP PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCE WITHIN THE STUDENT." INSTITUTIONS AND FORMER STUDENTS AGREED THAT PRODUCTION AND PROGRAMING ARE THE INDUSTRY DIVISIONS MOST EMPHASIZED IN TRAINING PROGRAMS. STUDENTS FELT RADIO AND TELEVISION WORKSHOPS, LIBERAL ARTS COURSES, AND RADIO AND TELEVISION COURSES WERE MOST VALUABLE TO THEIR PROFESSIONAL CAREERS. THE MOST FREQUENT CRITICISM BY FORMER STUDENTS WAS THE LACK OF COMMERCIAL ORIENTATION AND TRAINING IN SPECIFIC COMMERCIAL PRACTICES. NEARLY HALF RATED THEIR RADIO AND TELEVISION TRAINING AS GOOD, AND NEARLY 24 PERCENT AS EXCELLENT. RADIO AND TELEVISION BROADCASTERS EXPERIENCE THEIR GREATEST DIFFICULTY IN SECURING QUALIFIED PERSONNEL FOR (1) SALES DIVISION, (2) RADIO ENGINEERING, AND (3) TELEVISION PRODUCTION. THE TWO PREFERRED SERVICES OF A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATION WERE (1) TO ESTABLISH FACULTY-INDUSTRY INTERNSHIPS AND (2) TO ESTABLISH INSERVICE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR STUDENTS. THIS DOCUMENT, LC CARD NO.
