Sports media production classes are typically labor-intensive, hands-on courses taught in small-group environments. However, students from a variety of backgrounds can benefit from an understanding of the process, terminology, and personnel involved in the production of sports media content, and this understanding can be achieved in a large-lecture setting. This paper describes a course designed to provide that overview, and it details three assignments designed to cultivate an understanding of the production of various types of sports media content. Although it did not produce granular insights into the mechanics of how to produce sports content, the class provided a valuable overview of the production process for students across various majors, and it also served as a gateway for students to subsequently enroll in production-oriented courses.
