Sound, music and radio in the creative curriculum: perspectives on undergraduate study
Tim McClellan, Southampton Solent University
The appreciation of the impact of sound in our lives and our learning is ignored in many undergraduate programmes. Whether focussing on sound as a different learning style, putting together a podcast as an alternative to written coursework or listening to radio broadcasts with a more critical ear, creative students need to recognize how sound plays a major part in the way we interpret the world and how we present ourselves. Embedding basic radio production skills and an appreciation of sound and music into a creative undergraduate curriculum can help access an individual student’s own creativity for exploration and growth academically, personally and professionally.
