Collaborative learning for Sound Design

  • Thorley, Mark (Principal Investigator)

Project: Research

Project Details


In this project, Sound Design work was streamed and used as part of critique sessions with Film Theory students in Australia. The critique as a form of assessment was available to the initiators of the Sound Design work in the UK.

Key findings

By harnessing emerging technologies together with thoughtful pedagogical approaches, interaction between 'audio' specialists and 'film' specialists can provide new ways of learning about Sound Design. In particular, audio specialists can become familiar with the perspective and specialist language of film theorists. Similarly, film theorists can achieve greater understanding of the role of sound, and also the challenges of producing sound for film. Furthermore, the different cultures of the two continents can help to develop skills for the international creative industry marketplace.
