An Orientation to Musical Pedagogy

Birch P. Browning

Oxford University Press

The chapter outlines and discusses many steps in instructional design as well as assessing its effectiveness. The role of knowledge of subject matter, pedagogy, how students learn, and instructional context is stressed. The six challenging questions relating to pedagogical content knowledge are presented and discussed. Designing instruction is a temporally backward process, in that the first step is to determine the desired outcomes. The reader is taken through the three major stages of planning instruction: defining outcomes, planning assessment, and designing the learning plan. The importance of timely and relevant feedback is stressed. Teacher self-assessment is key as well. The author states that the height of professionalism is the consistent willingness to evolve for the students’ benefit.The chapter concludes with a detailed sample lesson project.
