An Integrated Approach to Teaching Electroacoustics and Acous- tical Analysis to Music Technology Students

Document Thumbnail

There is a requirement for Music Technology and Audio Engineering students to understand theoretical concepts along with acquiring practical experience in areas covering electroacoustic devices, room acoustics and measurement techniques. Traditionally, room acoustics is taught under an assumption of a high level of mathematical knowledge by the student, however, in this paper, an alternative, integrated practical approach to teaching is presented covering these discipline areas which has led to enhanced cross-curricular skills, improved student experience and increased learner attainment. The aim was to develop students’ higher-level cognitive domain skills through active experiential learning. The students captured room impulse responses and assessed their subjective qualities within a convolution reverb and from an acoustical analysis platform. Results show a general preference to experiential learning and an integrated cross-curricular approach within undergraduate study.
