Course Content (Syllabus)
The course provides understanding and experience using the premises and equipment of the radio studio, during design, production and execution of radio programs. The students learn to use analog and digital equipment (dubbing audio material, telephone connections, correspondences, etc.), executing recordings of speech and background music, employing nonlinear editing and audio processing techniques. In this context, students are organized into groups of 6-7 people for the preparation, organization and execution of radio productions, coupled with a written report of the laboratory activities and deliverables.
