The Audio Engineering Society recently held a conference that it called its “first dedicated specifically to audio education.”
Convening at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tenn., the conference gathered 140 educators and industry representatives; a number AES said “far surpassed” their initial expectations. Attendees came from 25 states and 12 countries.
According to a release, “The three-day conference focused on teaching methods, instructional resources, learning outcomes, technical operations, industry relations and related topics that impact the theoretical and practical aspects of professional audio education.”
Conference co-chair Michael Fleming explained, “Our goals with this conference were to stimulate dialogue among members of the audio teaching community and between the pro-audio industry and academia, so that there might be a greater sense of understanding and confidence in our respective missions.”
