  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Blended Learning Initiative

Blended Online Learning offerings are courses in which 30 - 50% of the content and instruction is delivered online. Such courses also meet face-to-face, as traditional courses do, yet students and faculty members are required to spend less “seat time” in the studio or classroom.  In developing such courses, Otis has responded to and engaged numerous faculty members who have expressed keen interest in online pedagogy orientation, training, and course preparation through a curricular innovation grant program.

Blended and Online courses are offered in support of student success in that they afford students and faculty members more flexible schedules, students can repeat or review online portions of courses from home between in-class meetings, and students can work on those portions of courses when they are most motivated to engage them.
