From Practice to Research and Back Again: Research Skills in Audio Engineering Education

Document Thumbnail

Given the rate and nature of change in media technology, future audio engineers should expect to manage production scenarios of greater complexity using less proven techniques. Meeting these challenges will require— in addition to knowledge of essential recording technology and established methods— analytical skills, the ability to self-direct inquiry and flexible, open-ended capacities in problem solving. We have designed an undergraduate audio technology course that provides opportunities to develop these capacities. Our approach situates students in an authentic research environment. By deconstructing and assessing published research, contrasting varied approaches, vetting solutions, evaluating results and designing their own research plans, students gain knowledge and skills that support professionalism in both the research lab and the recording studio.
