KU offers distance learning course in graduate music education

LAWRENCE -- The University of Kansas Music Education and Music Therapy Program will offer the distance learning course Practical Applications in Advanced Methodology in the Music Classroom (MEMT 823) during the fall 2004 semester.

This graduate-level course, for practicing professionals and current graduate music education students, will explore methodologies for the music education classroom. Topics will include the major methodologies, approaches and pedagogies that can be used in the classroom specific to general, choral and instrumental music programs.

Debra Hedden, associate professor of music education and music therapy at KU, is the instructor. Hedden taught for 20 years in public schools and spent 10 years as a faculty member and chair of music education at the University of Northern Iowa.

KU will offer the course on campus and off campus at Leavenworth Middle School, Washburn Rural High School and Udall High School. Because these sites operate on the Kansas Distance Learning Consortium using multi-point video conferencing equipment over high-speed Internet connections, participants interact with their colleagues at other sites and the instructor throughout each session.

Students not enrolled in a degree program at KU should contact Continuing Education for admissions and enrollment information: phone (785) 864-5823 or toll-free (877) 404-5823, e-mail enroll@ku.edu or visit www.kuce.org/isc/courses/distance/semester.html#.

KU degree-seeking students should consult with their adviser and then enroll through the regular enrollment process.
