  • 1. Audio Production Studio Orientation Christina Foster Benjamin Marte Paul McManus
  • 2. Initial Analysis Summary
    • More than 175 institutions offer audio production courses nationwide
    • Learners:
      • need operational and creative skills for entry-level employment
      • receive operational instruction once from instructor-led training, then rely on their notes
      • are having difficulties with operational procedures
  • 3. Educational Context
    • Audio production courses combine science with art, through classroom instruction and studio instruction
    • Audio production courses allow learners to:
      • learn basic studio operational skills
      • develop creative skills through practice, patience, and instructor feedback
      • demonstrate their learning through creative audio project assignments
  • 4. Data Sources and Methods
    • Typical audio production course: San Diego City College Radio-Television-Communications (RTVC)-107 Broadcast Audio
    • Data was collected from five sources by:
      • Survey of twenty-three RTVC-107 students
      • Interview of RTVC Department Chair
      • Interview of RTVC-107 Instructor
      • Interview of RTVC-107 Instructional assistant/audio tutor
      • Interview of professional audio engineer (PAE) with 25+ years experience
  • 5. Findings
    • Learners have difficulty with these procedures:
    • Using the microphone 22%
    • Playing CD’s using Auto-Cue 30%
    • Recording a CD 35%
    • Level calibration 65%
    • No instructional product for studio orientation is available, necessitating instructor-led training
  • 6. Extended Description of Learner/Users
    • Learners share many qualities:
      • No prior audio production experience
      • Diverse and multicultural
      • Typically under age 30
      • Seek entry-level industry employment
      • Most (78%) have access to computers that connect to the internet
      • Desire to improve their audio production skills
  • 7. Revised Learner/ User Goals
    • Learners want to:
      • Obtain entry-level jobs in the radio or recording industries
      • Understand audio studio equipment
      • Understand audio signal flow and routing
      • Acquire basic studio operational skills
      • Develop their own creative audio production skills
  • 8. Revised Instructional Goals
    • LWBAT:
      • Identify and describe the operation of typical studio equipment
      • Produce an original radio commercial to sell a product or service
      • Define audio signal flow and describe routing path options found in a typical studio
      • Produce a radio demonstration CD that includes back-announced music selections, commercials, and station identification
  • 9. Learning System/ Environment
  • 10.
    • Computer based training plus a print-based reference workbook:
      • Computer workstation in production studio
      • Secure delivery system, like Blackboard
      • Sequenced modular bidirectional instruction
      • Text sized for older and multicultural learners
      • Learning assessed through self-tests following each module
    Learning System/ Environment
  • 11. Rationale for Learning System
    • Accessible directly at point of need, the production studio, by all students even those without computers
    • Reference workbook is usable anytime and anywhere
    • Single and multiple user support
    • Learner controls pace and reviews anytime
  • 12. Rationale for Learning System
    • Makes studio instruction consistent, regardless of who instructs the course
    • Allows students who are absent not to miss studio instruction
    • Provides more time for the instructor to help students with the creative aspects of audio production
  • 13. Constraints, Learners
    • No prior audio production skills
    • Studio instruction given only once
