Novice audio engineers learn by observing, and our program incorporates observation into the formal education. We have developed curricula to specifically to strengthen observation skills. Concepts are delivered through two modules in two classes that run in parallel. In one class, an introduction to science philosophy and scientific methods, observation is discussed as one of several possible methods suitable for investigation of audio-related research questions. For the other class, on studio recording techniques, students formally observe and report on a session. This paper reviews our pedagogical aims, methods and results.
