Teaching Music in Higher Education

Colleen M Conway and Thomas M Hodgman

Graduate students already know what to teach when they begin teaching undergraduates, but often find they lack the knowledge of how to teach it. Teaching Music in Higher Education is the only book designed specifically to help graduate students in music teach undergraduates (both music- and non-music majors). Covering all aspects of the process--from the first class taught through obtaining tenure and promotion--this book effectively answers a host of questions that beginning instructors are likely to have. The authors emphasize innovation and learner-centered pedagogy, stressing a teaching style tailored to meet individual student needs. Beginning music instructors learn how to organize and explain materials in ways appropriate to students' abilities; create an environment for learning; help students become autonomous self-regulated learners; and reflect upon and evaluate their own teaching. This book shows graduate students how to accomplish all of these goals and more.
