Technology in Music Education - MUED4002

Year - 2020

This unit will explore the possibilities offered by technology in music teaching and learning and the impact of technology on (music) education today. Pre-practicum weeks provide a broad range of practical skills including website authoring (Wordpress support is provided, but any platform can be used), multitrack sequencing, step sequencing, audio editing, notation, creating graphics or using copyright commons graphics, multi-angle filming, lighting, composition and editing. In subsequent weeks, students engage with new technologies both practically and philosophically, seeking to understand the sophistications of technology-based music practices such as DJiing, producing, remixing, as well as engaging with new approaches to teaching and learning such as flipped learning, online learning, blended learning, and the maker-movement. Students gain a practical understanding of synthesis and sampling.
