Many global universities are making significant investments in faculty, real estate, and cutting-edge technology in support of professional audio production/teaching facilities. 2018 looms as a watershed year for new entries: Drexel University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Concordia College, ICESI U (Cali, Colombia), are just some of the institutions opening teaching complexes for audio in 2019. This panel of leading educators will explore the escalating commitment to pro audio education. Topics include: • What are the issues in designing for technical and creative training? • How do we “future-proof” our new facilities? • Where do today’s (and tomorrow’s) students end up working? • Engineering vs. liberal arts / Dedicated schools vs. traditional colleges: How do we incorporate intensive audio training into a more comprehensive curriculum—or should we?
