Revised Call for Papers with 2021 Dates.
Online Host: The Audio Engineering Society and Middle Tennessee State University, TN, USA
The conference will examine the technical, industrial and social changes affecting audio education and training while also focusing on instructional resources, teaching methods, learning outcomes, technical operations, areas for research, and similar topics that are relevant to organizations and individuals who provide theoretical and practical training in all areas of audio engineering.
The 2013 conference generated papers on topics that included career and industry trends, methods for teaching listening, mixing and perception, program and curriculum design, and numerous case studies. Workshops and social events also provided opportunities for networking and professional development.
The aim of the 2021 audio education conference is to build on this foundation with updated perspectives, current research about our evolving field and additional contributions from trainers, faculty, researchers, managers and practitioners. Its outcomes will include a collection of peer-reviewed papers, historical documents, survey instruments, and potential recommendations for educational resource management and development.
Original contributions are encouraged in, but not limited to, the following topics:
Relationships between student and faculty careers, academic research and industry
Changing roles of audio and media professionals in businesses and companies
Impacts of new commercial developments, including audio networking, immersive sound and artificial intelligence, on instruction, curriculum and applications
Effective teaching and learning methods and technologies
Discipline-specific case studies, including approaches to instruction and training in listening, mixing, perception, signal processing, teamwork, etc.
Program overviews and history
Topics related to diversity and inclusion in the classroom
Strategies behind the design of educational programs in audio
Maintaining and developing the competence of audio lecturers/teachers
