With five newly written chapters and sizable additions to nine original chapters, this second edition of Teaching Music in Higher Education provides a welcome update to author Colleen M. Conway’s essential guide. In the book’s new chapters, Conway offers insights beyond music and cognition including gender identity, sexual identity, and issues of cultural diversity not addressed in the first edition. Conway also covers technology in instructional settings and includes new references and updated student vignettes. Designed for faculty and graduate assistants working with undergraduate music majors as well as non-majors in colleges and universities, the book is designed to fit within a typical 15-week semester. The book’s three sections address concerns about undergraduate curricula that meet National Association of School of Music requirements as well as teacher education requirements for music education majors in most states. Part I includes chapters on assessment and grading in music courses; understanding students’ cognitive, musical, and identity growth; and syllabus design. Part II focuses on creating a culture for learning; instructional strategies to facilitate active learning; and applied studio teaching. Part III addresses growth in teaching practices for the college music professor and focuses on the job search in higher education, feedback from students, and navigating a career in higher education. The book features highly useful templates including a departmental assessment report, forms for student midterm and final evaluation, a Faculty Activities Report for music professors, and a tenure and promotion materials packet. Each of the three sections of the book makes reference to relevant research from the higher education or learning sciences literature as well as suggestions for further reading in the various topic areas. show more
