Educated Uncertainty: Four Perspectives on Teaching the Physics and Romance of TV Technology to Non-Technical Learners

The future TV professionals we teach should enter the industry with more than a perfunctory understanding of the technology on which their careers will be based. They should be introduced as early and as often as possible to the “romance” and challenge of moving signals from point A to point B. That romantic vision drove early pioneers to create radio and television at a time when everything had to be built from scratch. It is that vision of the physics and romance behind the technology that motivates today’s engineering and technical personnel with whom our students will someday collaborate, a job they will do better if they have shared, even to some small degree, the challenges of operating and in some cases building a technical apparatus. This panel will address the novel strategies four educators employ to overcome the barrier to learning we are calling “educated uncertainty,” so common among non-technical students.
