Pre-Conference Workshop:
Creating Interactive Content for the 21st Century Music Student:
A Hands-On Workshop

Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Stanley Room
JW Marriott Parq Vancouver
Vancouver, British Columbia

The CMS Committee on Professional Development is pleased to announce the pre-conference event, "Creating Interactive Content for the 21st Century Music Student: A Hands-On Workshop." This workshop will be held in the Stanley Room of the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver in Vancouver, British Columbia on Wednesday October 10, 2018, from 1:00-5:00 p.m., immediately prior to the National Conferences of CMS, ATMI, and NACWPI (October 10-13, 2018).

All interested persons are welcome to participate. Registration is required. Workshop is limited to 40 participants.

Music faculty in higher education are faced with 'digital natives' - students who expect and relish living in a technology rich environment. These students also often find difficulty in making the transition from high school to undergraduate student due to a lack of understanding as to what is required and expected in the professional study of music. The content as well as context for our music teaching and learning would thus benefit from new approaches and resources.

The intent of this half-day pre-conference workshop is to provide faculty participants knowledge and experience with the tools and techniques that can be used to develop and deploy digital content for music teaching and learning. This content will be in the form of multi-touch interactive books that are media rich and immersive. Due to the level of interaction and engagement possible with these multi-touch digital books, they can provide for initial presentation, opportunities for student study and practice, and review and reference. With support from Apple Inc. the workshop will provide participants hands-on access to Macintosh laptops and iPads. As each topic/concept is presented by the workshop faculty, participants will then be able to work with the discussed software and hardware to create their own versions of multi-touch content.
