At the 140th Audio Engineering Society Convention hosted in Paris from June 4 – 7, 2016, Ohio University Lecturer Kyle P. Snyder chaired a roundtable discussion featuring expert guests titled, European Audio Education: Possibilities and Challenges.
In this panel session featuring invited experts from across the continent, we discussed a variety of topics germane to European audio education including:
• Educational opportunities that are unique to Europe with a focus on exchange / internship opportunities.
• Challenges unique to both European educators and students including suggestions from both the panel and audience.
Guests included Mark Drews, Nyssim Lefford, Theresa Leonard, Denis Vautrin, and Nicolas Verastegui
Also at the 140th Convention, one of Snyder’s students, Michael France, continued his work as the Audio Engineering Society Student Delegate Assembly Vice Chair for North & Latin America. France was elected at the 139th AES Convention.
The 140th AES Convention brought together the world’s largest gathering of audio professionals, offering attendees opportunities to hear from top audio industry figures while also sharing in the latest research and technology information through informative papers, tutorials, workshops and special events.
