Technology Integration for the Modern Music Educator

ONLINE:
June 7August 1, 2021

Teaching music online and in-person has certainly been an adventure this past year! This course will prepare you to integrate technology as a way to enhance your teaching for either online or in-person instruction. Did you struggle to integrate technology into your rehearsal? Maybe you want to be more intentional and effective with your technology use? Or, perhaps you feel like your students know more about technology than you do? At the end of this course, you’ll have new ideas and tools to reinvigorate your teaching arsenal. 

There is a video chat component to this class. Dates & times will be determined the first week of class.
