129th AES Convention Education Committee Chair Alex Case

AES Convention Committee Co-Chairs Valerie Tyler and Jim McTigue report that 129th AES Convention Education Committee Chair Alex Case (pictured) will chair the AES Convention Education Forum Panel on Teaching/Learning Environments. Scheduled for Thursday, November 4, from 2:30 to 4 p.m. at San Francisco's Moscone Center, "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.

To establish the most comprehensive assessment of program design concerns, Case has developed three primary tracks and assembled panels of real-world experts to lead them: educators from both 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 in Chicago); Studios & Labs for Future Music Technologists (Agnieszka Roginska, Music Technology, New York University; John Storyk, Architect/Acoustician/Co-Principal, WSDG New York); and 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 at the Art Institute of California in San Francisco).

In addition to the Education Forum Panel, the Education Program will offer events that include the Student Delegate Assembly, Recording Competitions, Career Fair and Education Fair.

“Our goal for every Convention is to provide attendees with information and personal networking options they can not find anywhere else,” says AES Executive Director Roger Furness. “We feel this year’s education events will present a particularly valuable platform for the discussion of an important trend in the evolution of a cornerstone of the teaching/learning process.”
