Course Description
The main goal of the course is to offer and evaluate solutions to teaching problems, through the use of technology. Technology can be an important catalyst for rethinking an entire course or a single concept. In the process of reviewing specific teaching goals, the possibilities of appropriate uses of technology can become integral to the innovation process. The content and learning goals will inform the selection of the technology tool, and the tool itself will open up new teaching and learning possibilities. It is this process that can inspire instructors to explore the potential of technology without becoming overwhelmed by the need to change an entire course all at once. The class discussions concentrate on teaching philosophies and technology skills relevant to the teaching of ethnomusicology.

The course is based on in-class demonstrations and compiled on-line notes.
