Hard Truths – Sonic and Otherwise

Roger Haughey Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

People play and listen to music without really knowing what and how they are learning. In the second year of CCDMD's English-Language Materials Development Assistance Program Call for Submissions, I applied for a grant to turn the multimedia material in the course Sonic Truths: Popular Music and Knowledge into a course pack. The idea of the project was to give teachers and students the tools to move beyond the charms of music and submit it, and our relationship with it, to analysis with the help of Information Technology.
