At the beginning of June, prof. Ian Corbett was invited to Gdansk by the AES Student Section from the Gdansk University of Technology. The event’s success was facilitated by the cooperation of the Multimedia Systems Department of the University, with special assistance from Prof. Bozena Kostek.
During his visit Ian Corbett conducted several lectures for students interested in audio and recording technology and he led a session of Recording Critiques. During his lectures, students were able to learn about the fundamentals of audio engineers’ work and got to know how to improve their mixing and recording skills. This lecture was inspired by Ian Corbett’s book Mic it!. Such events are a considered a good opportunity to teach students about the specifics of audio related jobs and inform them about the mission and initiatives undertaken by the Audio Engineering Society.
The Student Section of Gdańsk University of Technolog reports that they are very happy that their collaboration with such an incredible AES Member and Educator as Ian Corbett took place, hoping that it will encourage other Students Sections to hold similar events in the future.
