At the 141st Audio Engineering Society Convention hosted in Los Angeles from 28th September – 2nd October 2016, Ohio University Lecturer Kyle P. Snyder presented his peer-reviewed paper, Understanding Project-Based Learning in the Audio Classroom: Using PBL to Facilitate Audio Storytelling.
According to Snyder:
One of the more prevalent buzzwords in education today, project-based learning is a natural fit for the audio engineering classroom. With students that thrive by working toward a common goal or “learning by doing,” this constructivist framework is worth examining as implemented by educators. This paper discusses project-based learning as implemented in an audio engineering classroom to facilitate audio storytelling and provides recommendations for faculty looking to implement project-based learning into their curriculum.
