The Transition to Digital Video: What Lessons Have We Learned So Far?
Fink, Edward J.
Digital technology is changing the environment of media production education. This exploratory study assesses the changes that computers bring to this learning atmosphere. The findings allow video production educators to focus on the salient issues they face as they make the transition to the digital era. Qualitative research methods were used, consistent with the interpretive paradigm. Data were gathered from 48 respondents, all practitioners or educators in media production, using a combination of observations, interviews, and surveys. The findings were collapsed into four broad categories, which were induced from the responses themselves. Digital technology was found to impact: (1) the production process, (2) curriculum, (3) class interaction, and (4) budgeting. Each of these categories was further divided into subtopics for discussion. (Author)
