Technical Initiatives and Sessions

Although the EdCom is not one of the official thirteen technical committees of the ASA, it is the only administrative committee that is able to sponsor technical sessions at the biannual meetings of ASA. Recent technical sessions have covered such topics as distance education in acoustics and tools for teaching acoustics in undergraduate and graduate level courses. The EdCom also co-sponsors sessions with other technical committees of the ASA such as the recent Communicating the Science of Underwater Sound (co-sponsor: Animal Bioacoustics) and Demonstration of Physical Acoustics (co-sponsor: Physical Acoustics) sessions.
