EDUCATIONAL AIMS OF PROGRAMME

The Diploma in Broadcast Literacy is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the theoretical, applied and creative aspects of contemporary broadcasting. Broadcast media are key knowledge-producing institutions, and the programme of study is a sustained, and rigorous, academic exploration of these modern discourses and technologies. Whereas ‘literacy’ is traditionally understood as the ability to communicate and interact with printed materials, this integrated programme of study is designed specifically to address and to develop a literacy for the global communication technology that is twenty-first century broadcasting. In sum, it seeks to develop a ‘broadcast literacy’.

The programme is designed to develop further the skills gained through undergraduate study in these areas, as well as adding new skills, particularly in research methodology, appropriate to higher degree level work.

On successful completion of the Diploma in English (Broadcast Literacy) students will have acquired:

a comprehensive and thorough understanding of the field of contemporary broadcasting;

an understanding of the techniques and strategies used in writing for television, radio and other broadcast media;

skill in writing and directing for broadcast media;

interest in the discourse of modern broadcasting, with particular emphasis on the discourse of broadcast news;

an ability to approach broadcast literacy from a variety of multidisciplinary perspectives, in ways which straddle the interface between creative writing, language and literature, and politics and cultural studies.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Learning Outcomes: Cognitive Skills

On the completion of this course successful students will be able to:

think independently and in an organised fashion;

Teaching/Learning Methods and Strategies

Full and committed participation to all aspects of the programme, from its theoretically-driven ‘discourse’ pathway, to its production-orientated approach to the ‘practice’ of broadcasting.

Skills are nurtured through class debate and discussion, through the keeping of reflexive journals that accompany practical work, and through the practice of writing.

Library work, and the use of QConnect and other on-line resources, will ensure that students have a rich source of different theoretical and scholarly frameworks to draw upon.

Methods of Assessment

Students are expected from the outset to think independently, and are encouraged to develop their own ideas for their assessed work, whether for the written essay-style format or for practical project-based outputs.

Formative and summative written work not only improves students' ability to engage with the relevant scholarship but also, because it involves working towards specified deadlines, helps them hone their time-management skills.
