Media Production

Behind every organization – from small business to multinational corporation – is a STORY.

The challenge is to effectively communicate what both the non-profit and revenue-focused know is more than just a brand, and to do so using the latest technology. But with so many forms of media competing for people’s attention, it’s essential to learn strategies to connect meaningful messages with the intended audience. This task can feel intimidating, and one might wonder where in one’s schedule there’s time to get the training necessary to boost and maximize impact.

Get hold of the skills needed to thrive in an ever-expanding digital environment with Providence’s MEDIA PRODUCTION ARTS program. Through the Centre for On-Demand Education (CODE), on-the-job mentored instruction is available for students interested in acquiring an accredited Certificate, Diploma, or Undergraduate Degree.

From theory to the practical implementation of industry-standard techniques for a wide range of media, CODE’s Media Production Arts competency-based subscription model of curriculum makes it convenient and affordable to integrate classroom and career.

Mentorship Requirements

THE FUNDAMENTAL GOAL OF MENTORS will be to encourage, guide, and assess the student in their journey toward proficiency.

The contextual mentor will need a wealth of specific workplace experience to guide the student’s learning so that they can direct and evaluate the student. The expectation is that they will have regular opportunities to see the student in their work environment to make real-time assessments.

The academic mentor will maintain the rigour needed to keep to the academic standards required by Providence. While knowing their subject well, they will be able to be a generalist for the student’s educational purposes.

There is no hierarchy in the mentor team.  They work together, coming to a consensus on each outcome assessment. Each brings a different skill set and assessment point of view on the student. Those different perspectives work together to hold the student to the expectations of each outcome. The student’s learning needs to demonstrate both the capacity to comprehend the subject thoroughly and to live it out capably.

The proctor is assigned to the student and mentor team by Providence. They will be experts on the curriculum and will support the team on questions around that. Also, they will be a support to encourage both the student and the mentor team to keep a timely pace of learning.
