College Music Symposium: Instructional Technologies and Methodologies


webster peter newThe Instructional Technologies and Methodologies component provides a glimpse into of historic, current, and emerging instructional technologies and methodologies useful for teaching in the rehearsal hall, classroom and studio. College Music Symposium recognizes that rapid and substantial changes have occurred in educational delivery methods in higher education over the past 30 years and that the rate of change continues to accelerate. For example, today, hardware and software resources both local and online are provided as a standard component of music theory, history, and pedagogical courses within music school curricula. Private instruction in instrumental and vocal instruction as well as performances in ensemble settings are impacted by the latest technologies in music teaching and learning. College Music Symposium recognizes that not all technologies and methods will prove over time to be worthwhile or valuable, and that the field of music will embrace and evolve toward some technologies and methods but not others. Articles published in this section of the Symposium provide a wealth of information about today’s application of music technology for collegiate instruction in music and helps to frame some of the important advances in curriculum reform.

The Editor welcomes at all times contributions from the CMS membership. ITM seeks practical, brief, to-the-point reviews written in an informal, readable style. Articles that feature new information, humor, and fresh insights and perspectives concerning the use of music technology in the classroom and studio are especially welcome.

Essays of any length are welcome. Graphics, images, video and sound files, and music examples that illuminate the text are welcome and encouraged. Submissions must be made via the members' area of website of The College Music Society. Guidelines for reviewers, as well as full instructions for submitting articles and materials for consideration, will be found therein. The receipt of submissions will be acknowledged by the Editor and notification of the article's status will be provided promptly.
