Sound and Pedagogy: Amplifying The Teachable Moment
In Fall 2012, Sounding Out! will celebrate the beginning of the academic year by kicking off a three-week series on “Sound and Pedagogy” and we would love for you to be a part of it. Whether or not you have taught (or taken) a “sound studies” class, we bet that sound has been an informative part of your teaching (and learning) practices for many years now. Because teaching is so crucial—yet so frequently ignored at conferences and on campus—Sounding Out! wants to wants to provide a virtual space for this vital discussion.
Use the following questions to give your creativity a summer jump start, but feel free to investigate the topic from any angle you’d like.
–Do you have any lessons (or projects) specifically designed around sound or listening that have worked well with students? Why? How?
–How has sound interrupted your teaching (or the teaching of others) in ways that were unexpectedly productive? unexpectedly disturbing?
–How can sound and/or listening operate as hegemonic forces in teaching practice? in classrooms? How might we better understand (and resist) this?
–How does your classroom teaching on sound impact your research? And vice-versa?
–Describe a “teachable moment” that arose involving sound or listening and how you addressed it.
We welcome the perspectives of students and teachers (formal and informal), reflections on experiences inside or outside the classroom, and content that is practical, theoretical, or a blend of both. Many of our best posts mix both a research-based perspective while examining an aural experience through a first-person narrative style. We’re also open to for podcasts as well as artistic posts that use the blog format to create an original audio-visual experience.
Please pitch your idea to us in 250 (or less) of your best words by July 1st. Send inquiries and submissions to Jennifer Stoever-Ackerman, SO!’s Editor in Chief and Guest Posts Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to read our submission guidelines before sending us your stuff. Good luck!
