Relational Pedagogy: Community, Culture & Leadership in Your Program

Music teachers and student-musicians connect in multiple ways through various interaction at school. As such, music programs are often a place where students feel they "belong" or connected to others. This course honors these connections, addressing pedagogy and practice that balances established boundaries with modeling of healthy, reciprocal, responsible and respectful relationships.

 

By the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Engage relational pedagogy in instructional practice

  • Demonstrate strategies of student engagement for leadership purposes

  • Conduct strategic planning and plan for change management

  • Demonstrate value for student voice

  • Exemplify principles of leadership

SUMMER ONLINE COURSE DETAILS

 

VanderCook Online is powered by Schoology (www.schoology.com). Through this learning management system, you'll be able to interact directly with your instructor, students in your classes, and members of the greater VanderCook Online community.

The summer online term officially begins on Monday, June 10. The week prior to June 10, you'll be added as a new Schoology user. Be on the lookout for an email from noreply@schoology.com or wfong@vandercook.edu with log-in instructions. Once you are given credentials, simply visit www.online.vandercook.edu to login. On the morning of June 10, you'll have access to your classroom and course material.

Some courses have specific online chat meeting times (please see course descriptions), while others have a flexible meeting schedule. You can expect all courses to meet together in a live online chat. If a live meeting time doesn’t work, you can work with your instructor to make other arrangements.

You’ll have the opportunity to work at your own pace each week while completing assignments and posting responses to discussion questions. You’ll constantly be interacting with your instructor and classmates online, and working through new material each week. We know how crazy summer schedules can get, so our instructors try to make everything as flexible as possible!
