The Magazine Production course is part of Ryerson University’s Chang School Web and Magazine Publishing Certificate, but you don’t need to be in the certificate program to take it. You can take it by itself.

(Disclosure: I’m the teacher).

This course is constantly being updated due to changes in technology and the increased requirement to incorporate digital media into a magazine publishers’ requirements.

The Spring semester curriculum will have a nice balance between digital media and print, providing basics for both as well as a few hands-on assignments.

As a student, you will:

• learn about digital publishing in many formats including websites, blogs, apps, and digital magazines (with static and enhanced content)

• discuss digital media and events and their use in publishing and magazines

• visit a printing facility and have a guided plant tour

• have access to the digital edition of the Magazines Canada Production Handbook throughout the course (special thanks to Magazines Canada for this privilege). The handbook covers project management, asset & content management, and has a section on printing.

• come away with an understanding of how print and digital workflows can be integrated

Course registration begins March 18, 2013 for the Spring term. Classes are on Tuesday evenings beginning on May 7, 2013.
