Semester 1

Organiser: Mr Geraint Ellis

Overall aims and purpose

Nod y modiwl yw galluogi myfyrwyr sydd â pheth brofiad o gynhyrchu cyfryngol, gan gynnwys cynhyrchu radio, i ddatblygu eu sgiliau yn y maes yn bellach, tra hefyd yn datblygu dealltwriaeth well o theori radio, a defnyddio’r ddealltwriaeth yma yng nghyd-destun gwaith cynhyrchu radio.

Course content

Bydd y darlithoedd yn canolbwyntio yn gyntaf ar hanes radio fel cyfrwng penodol, gyda sylw arbennig i Gymru a’r Deyrnas Unedig, yn ogystal â phersbectif rhyngwladol ehangach. Nesaf, fe archwilir amryw o ddulliau cynhyrchu radio, ac yna gwahanol fathau o raglenni radio, gan ddadansoddi enghreifftiau penodol. Bydd agweddau damcaniaethol y modiwl yn cael eu crynhoi yn derfynol gydag arolwg cysyniadol eang o natur y cyfrwng a sut mae hyn yn newid yn yr oes ddigidol. Bydd y gweithdai ymarferol yn cyd-redeg â’r darlithoedd, gyda’r myfyrwyr yn datblygu eu sgiliau cynhyrchu cyffredinol cyn iddynt gynllunio, ymchwilio a chreu cynyrchiadau unigol. Bydd yr astudiaeth o ddulliau cynhyrchu, mathau o raglenni a rhaglenni penodol yn y darlithoedd o gymorth i’r myfyrwyr gyda’r gwaith ymarferol.
