The last few months have turned everything upside down and had a direct impact on our teaching and personal lives. For the past 20 years, Music-COMP has specialized in online learning and communication with students. This 2 credit course is geared towards helping you build the skills and knowledge to make the most out of remote teaching and learning, while also focusing on techniques that are applicable to in-person classes as well. 

Topics Covered Include:

  • Working with audio and video production programs that are readily available to you in order to make instruction that looks good, sounds good and feels good. You will have direct feedback on how to create videos and audio works that look professional and allow you to connect with your students in a meaningful way. 
  • Remote learning pedagogy including designing and recording lessons, how to scaffold for remote learning, dealing with student and teacher accessibility. We'll examine what other schools and teachers around the country are using and be able to talk to your colleagues around the state via remote sessions
  • LMS options that are specific to music teachers
  • Free, cloud-based programs to encourage creativity while helping to ensure accessibility to you and your students
