Utilizing Effective Media, Demonstrations, and Exercises on the Perception of Sound

One of the key challenges in the development of curriculum for future audio professionals is to achieve a balance between theory and practice that fosters the necessary critical thinking skills in order to be successful in the field. Understanding sound perception is a crucial piece to the development of these skills in audio. In courses focusing on hearing physiology and psychoacoustics, we have utilized and developed a range of media, demonstrations and exercises that reference students’ interest, as well as knowledge and experience from practicum courses. These activities reinforce concepts and nurture the development of creative problem solving and evaluation. Examples of effective teaching tools will be discussed, as well as challenges and pitfalls that may arise.
