Abstract:
The teaching of audio engineering requires a balance in the presentation of theory and practice. From a theoretical point of view, there are many subject areas that are relevant to the study of audio engineering, including acoustics, psychoacoustics, analog and
digital electronics, digital audio technology and signal processing, audio signal flow, and music. Practical experience with recording techniques, technical ear training, recording sessions, live sound, theater sound design, broadcast audio, as well as hardware and
software design can be equally as important as theory in the pursuit of audio engineering.

Educators usually must balance factors such as these when considering education in audio. The panel will present and consider various aspects of audio education and discuss methods and philosophies of teaching in this field.
