The Growth and Diversity of Screen Education: Issues and Answers.
Grogg, Sam L., Jr.
Although film and television education have been a part of the core university curriculum for almost two decades, the nature of instruction has been characterized and developed according to the interests of individual faculties, rather than by any collective understanding of a required body of basic knowledge. If film education is to be recognized as a distinct part of the arts and humanities, thereby qualifying for funding, administrative support, and allotted time for the pursuit of definitive research, the following changes in the field seem essential: increased communication within the field resulting in a sense of shared identity and purpose; a professional commitment to the field as a separate discipline; specific faculty development and inservice teacher training; the establishment of a working relationship with the film industry and the professional organizations that represent its interests; and cooperation with the academic bureaucracy of the university in establishing certification and credibility without compromising creativity and freedom.
