(orig­i­nal air date: Nov. 8 )

Ever won­der how inte­grat­ing sound & tech­nol­ogy into your cur­ricu­lum can grab your stu­dents’ attention?

Pre­sented by Stephan Schütze on Tue. Nov. 8, 1PM EST
Industry-Leading Sound Recordist and Game Sound Designer

What is the webi­nar about?

This enter­tain­ing (we promise!), free webi­nar explores why sound is an inte­gral yet over­looked aspect of edu­ca­tion and learn­ing.  It will demon­strate a range of ways in which under­stand­ing hear­ing, lis­ten­ing and per­cep­tion of sound can ben­e­fit edu­ca­tion where our goal is not to sim­ply pass on knowl­edge, but to help develop meth­ods of think­ing and teaching.

Who is the guy in the red suit?

Stephan Schutze has been a sound designer, recordist and com­poser in the games indus­try for over ten years.  He recently cre­ated the first Aus­tralian pro­duced sound library since the 1950s, which is being dis­trib­uted world-wide through Pro Sound Effects and will become part of The Aus­tralian National Film and Sound Archive in late 2011.
Stephan engages in reg­u­lar lec­tur­ing and con­fer­ence pre­sen­ta­tions about sound design, most recently at the Royal Mel­bourne Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy Uni­ver­sity and the Aus­tralian Film Tele­vi­sion and Radio School.


Webi­nar details (it’s worth your sixty minutes)

The webi­nar will be bro­ken down into four sections:
  • Intro­duc­tion
  • Think­ing differently
  • Work­ing differently
  • Con­clu­sions and Questions
  • Will be avail­able for online view­ing for all who reg­is­ter – we will email you a link

Any­one who signs up for this series can nom­i­nate a class sub­ject, indus­try focus or research area. This infor­ma­tion will be directly addressed as part of the pre­sen­ta­tion to help pro­vide spe­cific infor­ma­tion about how an under­stand­ing of sound can improve almost any area of your teach­ing, work or study.

  • Media pro­duc­ers will learn new ways to approach using sound in media production.
  • Teach­ers will be invited to engage their stu­dents more by chal­leng­ing their perceptions.
  • Stu­dents will be encour­aged to think and work out­side the tra­di­tional con­fines of cre­ative thinking.
Still not convinced?

Although we rely on sound to sur­vive, very few of us under­stand how we can ben­e­fit from bet­ter under­stand­ing our sound envi­ron­ment and sound pro­duc­tion. Edu­ca­tors rarely use the sense of hear­ing beyond the expec­ta­tion of hav­ing their stu­dents lis­ten to them speak, and media pro­duc­ers too often include sound only as an accom­pa­ni­ment to visuals.

All par­tic­i­pants will take away bet­ter under­stand­ing of how sound directly affects their lives and how to bet­ter take con­trol of their audio environment.
