The Audio Engineering Society will hold its 50th international conference devoted to audio education from July 25-27, 2013 at Middle Tennessee State University. The conference will cover teaching methods, instructional resources, learning outcomes, technical operations, industry relations and similar topics related to audio education.

The event will include addresses by more than 120 educators and industry professionals, including the keynote address by Bob McCarthy, Director of System Optimization at Meyer Sound. In addition to educating audiences with presentations, case studies and discussions, the event will feature more than 30 formal papers, historical documents and possible recommendations for educational resource management and development. Further, the event will hold eight workshops and tutorials focused on subjects like pedagogy, internships, accreditation and more.

“AES members who are in academia and industry share a similar passion for strengthening the range and quality of educational resources associated with audio engineering,” says Bill Crabtree, MTSU’s Conference Co-Chair and Associate Professor in the Department of Recording Industry. “We expect that this conference will have a lasting and positive effect on pro audio education programs at all types of schools going forward.”
