Abstract

Despite the many benefits, teaching audio and audio technology to music students brings as many challenges as rewards. Their vastly different scientific and technical backgrounds often require fundamentally different pedagogical strategies from other subjects in a music curriculum. The dissemination of information via lectures and/or lengthy technical readings is especially problematic. This paper addresses these challenges by presenting a new pedagogical approach centered on a free pedagogical software package: the Interactive Workshop for Audio Intelligence and Literacy (i-WAIL). When combined with inquiry-based learning approaches and projects based on the student's area of interest, it has so far proven highly effective with music students of a wide range of previous abilities.
