Multi-Crew Scheduling With an excessive number of qualified applicants, consider forming 2 DIFFERENT CREWS alternating months Multi-Crew Scheduling
Camera Operators – in-studio & on- location videotaping Video Tech - controls camera switching and some special effects Audio Tech – sets up, monitors, and controls audio feeds Script Writer – collects, organizes and writes script content Script Editor – works alongside script writer to double check accuracy, etc.

Floor Manager – in charge of traffic flow in and out of studio. Also in charge of setting up studio before and after broadcast.

Video Bulletin Board Tech – collect, organize and write scrolling announcements for continuous display. Video Bulleting Board Editor – works alongside Video Bulletin Board Tech to double check content accuracy, spelling, and grammar
Very First Crew Each crew member trained by advisor for first job Practice broadcasts videotaped, then critiqued by entire crew. Stress reliance on interaction of all jobs to make a successful broadcast.
Subsequent Crews Old crew trains new crew in the following steps: One-on-one training using specific job Check Sheet New crew member shadows old crew member Old crew member shadows new crew member New crew member works independently.
Job Assignments (within the same crew): Use job application strength check sheet to initially place each member in a suitable job. Assign new job every month Try to achieve balance among broadening experiences, presenting challenges, and achieving a successful overall broadcast. Give students some choice in their next job – before the new month begins, students select 3 jobs they havent done yet. Advisor tries to assign one of these.
