A Communications/Media Technology Program at the Community College Level.
Valvoda, Mary Alice
This program, developed as a substitute for the library technology program at Lakeland Community College (Ohio), provides basic skills in the areas of communigraphics, reprographics, communications, telecommunications, audiovisual equipment repair and maintenance, and library technology. Taking into account the current swell in the field of media, this broad-based program is designed to prepare students to play a paraprofessional role not only in libraries, but also for a variety of other employment situations, thereby rendering them more "marketable" in the rapidly changing career ladder. In addition, it establishes feasible routes for lateral or vertical personnel movement. The bulk of this document is devoted to a review of the literature, in support of both instructional technology programs, and broad-based vocational education frameworks. A core curriculum is provided, along with four supplementary curriculum options: reprographics, telecommunications, maintenance and repair, and a general comprehensive option. Selected course descriptions are appended, along with lists of institutions having similar programs. (NHM)
