Designing an Audio Curriculum for the 21st Century

Audio education has become an increasingly popular degree choice over the last 20 years. Today the student has a choice of numerous programs ranging from a simple certificate through PhDs. At the same time there has been a quantum shift in recording technology and techniques that has had a profound effect on the way music is produced, This fact along, with the collapse of the traditional studio system and the explosion of new media, has created a very different job market for today's graduating student than 20 years ago. The challenge for the educator now, is to create a viable curriculum which will prepare students for the reality of the 21st century job market. This panel will assemble educators from a variety of audio programs who will discuss their curriculums, educational philosophy, and how they prepare their students for the present-day job market.
