A Survey of Current Music Technology & Recording Arts Curriculum Order

The rapid proliferation of audio education programs in a variety of institutional settings has led to curricular design that is highly adapted and variable between regions, focuses, and educational environments. While there have undoubtedly been numerous successful approaches to program/curriculum design, there is little published data on the approaches currently employed across the sector, nor the effect that these curricular decisions may have on student outcomes. This initial study presents information on the past and current state of curricular order collected from a voluntary survey including participants from 35 institutions across six countries and three continents. Observations are made on typical topic presentation order, as well as a case study regarding the evolution of curriculum order within one institution.
