Teaching to Video--A New Pedagogical Experience
The world of education is rapidly changing. Students seem to have their heads buried in electronic devices at all times and their world of Instagram and Youtube is a world of on-demand availability. The rhythms of knowledge acquisition are accelerating, and teaching to shortened attention spans has teachers feeling like dinosaurs. But, as always, change represents both a challenge and an opportunity.
We now have the opportunity to provide interventions in between weekly piano lessons - delivering concepts, modeling, and ideas that students can consult even when their teacher is not physically present. Teaching to video, however, requires adjustments of methods and pedagogical approaches that demand growth and adaptation on the part of the teacher.
The monologic character of video delivery requires strong pedagogy and a deep understanding of likely student responses to musical and technical problems. In this presentation, we will discuss the challenges of being on-camera; strategies for video lesson planning, materials and approaches that are suitable for online delivery, and the copyright problems that exist when posting videos online. While technological matters will be briefly discussed, the primary focus will be placed on the challenges of pedagogy when the student is absent.
David Cartledge, NCTM, is Co-Chair and Associate Professor in the Piano department at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, and has performed across the United States and internationally. He is a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Trust Award for Young Australians and the Sir John Crawford Scholarship of the Australian American Association Canberra. He has also been awarded grants from the Ian Potter and George Alexander Foundations.
At the Jacobs School of Music, Dr. Cartledge teaches the School's graduate Piano Literature and Keyboard Literature classes, and directs the Secondary Piano Program—a program for non-piano majors that provides instruction to more than 900 students per semester.
At conferences, Cartledge has demonstrated methods for training tomorrow's music professionals to speak effectively about music, and of using digital musical analysis effectively in the classroom. His presentations include these and other topics at both national and chapter College Music Society conferences; at the national conference of the Association for Technology in Music Instruction; at the 2014 National Group Piano and Piano Pedagogy Forum; at the World Piano Pedagogy Conference; and at the Indiana Music Teachers Association state conference.
A native of Australia, Cartledge is a graduate of the Australian National University, Canberra. His graduate studies were at Indiana University, where he completed his master's and doctoral work. His teachers were Gyorgy Sebok, Béla Síki, Christopher Elton, John Luxton and Angela Griffiths. He has a comprehensive background as a pedagogue, having been involved in the instruction of students at all levels over many years.
Cartledge was, for several years, Co-Director of the Indiana University Piano Academy, an annual three-week opportunity for middle-to-high-school pianists from around the world to gather in Bloomington. He is frequently invited to give master-classes, and he has judged competitions at both state and national levels. He resides in Bloomington, Indiana, with his wife, son, and daughter.
