In many schools teachers who, with little or no TV production experience or training, are being put in the role of creating not just a curriculum, but in some cases an entire production facility. The primary goal is to give instructors the resources which will  expose, train and nurture an on-going technical competence and understanding in those students that demonstrate an aptitude and interest in TV production as a possible career after graduation.

Coming in Spring, 2014
