A Media Technology Curriculum.
Rutgers, The State Univ., New Brunswick, NJ. Curriculum Lab.
This curriculum guide is designed to train students who will assist in planning, designing, producing, and using media and multimedia materials. It offers a 2-year, competency-based, post-secondary program of studies in media technology, and uses an interdisciplinary approach drawn from the broad areas of art, business management, drafting, library science, photography, printing, television, and typing. Two levels of attainment are provided: The media equipment technician level, reached after completion of the first year, and the multimedia technician level, reached upon completion of the total program. The units of study (drawn from significant features of each discipline above) are organized into 10 components. First year components are media equipment, drafting, and circulation; second year components include commercial art, typing, planning and presentation, and management. Units in printing and software production are offered for both years. In addition, hours are allotted each year for the 10th component--(Prescriptive), which allows for individualized studies according to student needs. Presented in each unit are the number of hours required, specific objectives, list of basic content, suggested learning activities for classroom and laboratory, and a list of equipment or supplies needed. The introductory section includes a student progress chart. (RG)
