Learning Resources: Creative Production Group

Graphics ∑ Photography ∑ Word Processing

Description
The Creative Production Group produces materials for instruction, information and marketing. The design work for the Class Schedules, College Catalog and program brochures is accomplished here. All three departments make extensive use of technology. The designers in Graphics do all of their finished work and most of their preliminary designs on Macís. The Photography Department is now using digital photography completely: Nikon cameras interfaced with Macs. Word Processing uses PCs and produces a large amount of work for faculty members and departments. In addition, this department is providing Graphics with an increasing amount of support on projects that previously would have been completed solely by Graphics.

Curriculum Impact
This group has an impact on instruction, recruitment, and the college image.

Approximate Number of Students Served
Has the potential to affect all students.

Support Impact
The technology needs to be current, i.e., regularly upgraded, and staff development must be provided so the technology can be fully and effectively used. Additional staff in Graphics is required because of increased demand.
