  2. 2. An Overview of SAE Institute SAE INSTITUTE was founded in 1976 by Dr. Tom Misner. Since then it has grown to be the largest private college of its kind and comprises over 50 campuses across the globe. It is referred to, globally, as SAE. Statement of Educational Philosophy and Mission SAE believes that it is of paramount importance to provide an effective network of learning opportunities for students in preparation for their careers. This network should provide the basis for effective life-long growth and development in their chosen fields. The Institute espouses an educational philosophy which encourages students from all backgrounds to undertake courses which will enable them to expand and develop their career options and opportunities. Notwithstanding these vocational concerns, the Institute is determined to assist in the development of the ‘whole person’, not just the ‘technician’. Creative projects place emphasis on the value of ‘ideas’, content, design, and problem solving.

Module 203: Industry Perspectives, Issues, and Research Techniques, is an academically rigorous module requiring students to examine critically the structural antecedents of the contemporary industry, the range of problems and operational issues confronting industry leaders, and to relate these to the general concerns and issues facing the creative industries. Through analysis and discussion students are encouraged to speculate on possible future directions of the creative industries – both nationally and internationally. The module is also designed to further develop information gathering skills and investigative attitudes, critical analysis abilities and reliable reporting techniques aimed at equipping students to make convincing project proposals and to be effective self-critics. Module 204: Cultural Perspectives is aimed at providing aesthetic foundations and creative perspectives to contemporary creative efforts by examining a range of current industry activities. THE BACHELOR OF RECORDING ARTS - Level Three Studies Summary The third and final level of this programme is distinguished by its emphasis on advanced technological skills, mature and insightful creative activities, academic excellence, and by a thoughtful mix of class activities and guided self-directed learning. To accommodate these important characteristics, the number of assessment items has been reduced, relative to earlier Levels. Consequently, the expectation is that each item will demonstrate, at a high level, a balanced and well-integrated synergy between cognitive abilities and practical skills, between the theoretical frameworks and the practical applications. The main feature of Level Three is the Research Project (Module 303) through which students are able to demonstrate the extent and cohesiveness of their technological skills and academic abilities, and to provide a clear indication of their readiness to move into the professional work setting or further academic study. It provides the opportunity for each student to develop their own creativity and research in an area of particular professional or academic interest to them. The Research Project should be the focal point of activities and should draw from and feed into the requirements of the other Level Three Modules. The other Modules can reinforce and provide support for the Research Project by providing opportunities for advanced technological studies, of hardware and software, which are important to the proper execution of the project. The organisation and delivery of these ‘high end’ technological studies will be negotiated between students and the Program Coordinator to ensure the best possible synergy. Studies in the vital support areas such as Marketing and Intellectual Property can be directly applicable to the nature and potential of the Research Project. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of this opportunity to legally ‘protect’ their project via the relevant copyright processes and to explore its business and commercial options. In that general context they are also encouraged to examine possible commercial opportunities in the very broad field of edutainment - a sub-set inside the even larger field of infotainment.
  14. 14. Page 14 -Bachelor of Recording Arts Degree Modules- SAE INSTITUTE NZ RAB203 ACADEMIC RESEARCH & WRITING TECHNIQUES The primary focus of this module is to provide academic bridging skills for students wishing to enrol in the final two years of the Bachelor Of Recording Arts and who do not have the necessary pre-requisites (minimum of NCEA Level 3 qualification). The module is designed to prepare for entry into a programme that will require a high standard of academic knowledge, skills and achievement in areas of reading, research, writing, oral discussion and presentation.

Emphasis is places on developments in technology and changes in social structures. Research and Information Sources: The ability to plan and implement independent research is of fundamental importance to persons preparing for careers in the infotainment industry. This module establishes methodologies, skills and attitudes so the student can successfully complete research in this field. RA204 CULTURAL PERSPECTIVES A key element in effective membership of the infotainment industry is the ability to identify, analyse and contribute intelligently to issues currently influencing the industry and the wider community. This module explores contemporary issues in ways that encourage students to take an active part in professional dialogue. Contemporary Issues: This component of the program is also aimed at providing aesthetic foundations and creative perspectives regarding design, story-telling, cultural ideas and techniques of expression. Roles of Producers and Directors: This Module explores the various and changing roles of Producers, Directors, Conductors, and Artistic Managers and examines the work and practice of a selection of successful ‘artists’ who have made major contributions as producers in their specialised fields.

Application for granting of credit can be made to the Program Coordinator. Credit will be granted on a “per unit” basis. Exemption from a program unit(s) is dependent upon meeting the theoretical requirements of the unit(s) and presentation of a portfolio which demonstrates relevant practical skills. In the event of credit being granted the program length may be shortened and fees adjusted accordingly. HOLIDAYS Holidays are kept to a minimum during all programs. SAE is closed on statutory public holidays and also for three weeks during the Christmas holiday period. A list of the holiday dates is provided to the student upon commencement.
