Training for Educational Media Design. An Inquiry Carried Out on Behalf of the Department of Communication Design, Leeds Polytechnic. Working Paper No. 9.
A survey was made to determine the need for new media specialists to work in developing educational and training programs. In particular, an estimation of the present and future needs for trained personnel was analyzed. The greatest need identified was in primary and secondary education. Other employment areas likely to expand included Teachers' Centres, Area Learning Resources Centres, educational technology service units in Further Education, the Open University, and educational publishing. The first criterion for employment was found to be the ability to produce visual matter: graphics, photographic, etc. In addition, the survey noted that qualified teachers with classroom experience, knowledge, and ability regarding media selection, design, and use will be much sought after, particularly if the individuals have practical ability. The final section proposes a curriculum and argues for the establishment of new courses. The appendixes propose course objectives and list people contacted during the survey. (WCM)
