AES 2021 International Audio Education Conference

The Conference includes peer-reviewed paper presentations, workshops and daily plenary events focused on audio education, including curricular resources, teaching strategies and professional development for-and from-industry trainers, faculty and staff who are active instructors at the high-school, undergraduate, graduate and professional levels.

 

The pace of industrial, technical and social change has only accelerated since MTSU hosted the first AES Education Conference in the summer of 2013. Distance and online learning are no longer niche practices. Machine learning and intelligent automation influence many aspects of media production. The economics and underlying technologies for entertainment and communication continue to evolve rapidly, affecting our students and their career prospects. In this environment, there’s a lot for us to discuss and learn from each other.

 

This three day Conference will be live via zoom channels in Central US Daylight Time (Nashville).
