129th AES Convention to Consider Innovations in 21st Century Teaching/Learning Experience

September 29, 2010

San Francisco - Sep 28, 2010 - 129th AES Convention Education Committee Chair Alex Case will chair the AES Convention Education Forum Panel on Teaching/Learning Environments. Scheduled for Nov. 4, 2010, from 2:30 - 4 p.m., at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Creating The Out-Of-Classroom Experience will address the complex factors schools must address when considering expansion or modernization of their audio education program. "Issues will range from development of specialized courses, to designing research lab and control room environments capable of providing students with full visual access, intense hands-on experience and deep interaction with other disciplines," Case says.

Case has developed three primary tracks and assembled panels of experts to lead them; educators from large and mid-sized institutions, and an architect/acoustician with broad educational facility design credentials. "Educators and students are invited to join the discussion as our panelists present their benchmark work in creating a compelling out-of-classroom experience," Case adds. The three primary topics are:

  • Production In Action: Paula Froehle, academic dean; John Murray, recording arts director - Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy, Chicago
  • Studios and Labs for Future Music Technologists: Agnieszka Roginska, music technology, New York University; John Storyk, architect/acoustician/co-principal, WSDG New York
  • Summative Assessment in the Studio: Building a Curriculum That is More Than the Sum of its Parts: Nathan Breitling, DMA, director, Audio Production; Ryan Kleeman, MFA, faculty audio production - The Art Institute of California-San Francisco.
