About Music Education: ePortfolio - a robust and visual story of a musican's learning journey - BOOK LAUNCH
Monday 13 March 2017
Recital Hall West
Level 1, Sydney Conservatorium of Music Sydney NSW
Jennifer presents her thoughts on the power of the ePortfolio process as a valuable teaching and learning tool after working extensively with a variety of undergraduate music students at SCM across different Units of Study. She demonstrates how the evidence of learning assists in developing musical identity and how students are left with more than a showcase of achievements. Jennifer gives examples of year 7 music students in school bands who use websites in a portfolio process to explore how their musical achievement (from class work to performances) impacts their learning through photos and video.
Associate Professor Jennifer Rowley currently lectures Music Education at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music (SCM) at The University of Sydney and co-ordinates the professional placement program for SCM students into the Arts industry, regional conservatoriums and schools. She is particularly interested in the areas of identity development; gifted musicians’ talent development; and the impact of the electronic Portfolio for fostering enhanced work readiness. Jennifer is committed to musician’s professional learning and how individual cognitive, social, emotional and behavioural needs of all learners can be met in a diverse range of educational settings.
Join us for refreshments and to continue the conversation afterwards.
