Have the events of the last two years made you re-evaluate your idea of what a music program can (and should) be?
Have you discovered new ways of teaching music and engaging with students?
Between adapting a traditional instrumental or vocal program for online instruction, integrating new technology into music classes, or exploring unconventional approaches to music education, the last two years have highlighted the creativity of music teachers and their ability to think outside of the box.
At the same time, the necessary discussions about equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility in education have led music teachers to reflect on their own teaching practices, and reimagine their music programs.
This workshop is a chance for pre-service and early career music teachers to discuss some of the big issues confronting them, and to learn from each other through the sharing of experiences, ideas, and resources.
Discussion topics include:
- Culturally Responsive and Relevant Pedagogy (CRRP)
- Social justice and music education
- Music education in the Covid-19 era
Registration is FREE and participants will receive a detailed resources document following the workshop.
