Description:

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. Features *Materials for organizing a course, including a course preparation guide with sample syllabi, an outline of a typical course sequence for a music major, sample performance assessment tools, and sample forms for student midterms and final evaluations *Vignettes written by undergraduate music majors and reflections from successful music faculty *Advice for the job search and professional development *A sample Faculty Activities Report for music professors and a sample tenure and promotion materials packet *National Association of School of Music (NASM) requirements and teacher education requirements for music education majors *Suggestions for further reading at the end of each topic
