Introduction Smithsonian Folkways: Introduction to Smithsonian Folkways: Integrating World Music Pedagogy Across the Disciplines Part II

No formal music knowledge and/or training is required to participate.

The presenter will introduce the concept of World Music Pedagogy, and the ways in which it can be used to explore familiar and unfamiliar cultures with students through music media. The presenter will demonstrate how the resources provided on the Smithsonian Folkways website and World Music Pedagogy can be used to create engaging experiences for the undergraduate and graduate students in classes across the disciplines. Using technology (computers, basic internet, and PowerPoint) and Western and World Music instruments, participants will develop their own plans to apply world music pedagogical strategies in their classrooms to engage students in various world cultures through the three types of listening (attentive, engaged, and enactive). Participants will share these resources with each other, and engage in discussion regarding how they and their students might use these and other resources, similarly and in collaboration, to develop a deep understanding of social, cultural, and political contexts and how they interact.
