Dear Frameworks, 

This isn't strictly an experimental film query, but I know many people who 
teach read this listerve. My department has delayed for years the decision 
about what to do about the transition away from teaching Final Cut Pro 7, and 
result has been increasingly chaotic and unsustainable (we've developed a messy 
do-whatever-you-want solution where individual faculty members choose which 
editing platform to teach, so some of our students only know FCPX, some are 
still using FCP7, a handful are learning Premiere on their own, and it's all a 
bit of a mess). I'd love to hear from as many instructors as possible about 
what your program has done about teaching editing post-FCP7, how you reached 
your decision, what your reasons were for teaching or not teaching FCPX, and 
how things have been working out. 

Please reply off-list if it seems more appropriate: this may or not be a public 
discussion topic of interest to others and is maybe a bit off-Frameworks-topic 
but it would be very helpful for me to compile some information about what 
others are doing. 

Thanks so much in advance for your help.
