Pragmatic Proposals for Professional Pedagogy in Education for Broadcasting.
Dudek, Lee J.
Education designed to prepare future broadcasters should begin to concentrate on liberal arts and professionalism and should de-emphasize skills and technical competencies. Two weaknesses of a technical-centered education are: (1) that technical competencies rapidly become obsolete, and (2) that the broadcaster trained as a technician usually lacks the background and sensitivity to turn the industry away from commercialism and towards meeting the needs of the society. Broadcasters should be educated to make intelligent decisions and to use the media to promote a free and harmonious society. This goal is best achieved through a general, liberal arts education, and through exposure to senior broadcasters who have a broad and humane perspective on the world. (EMH)
