Synchronous vs. Asynchronous Learning and How to Apply It
John Scully
Manager, Learning Strategies
Teaching music in an online environment is not just a translation of your in-person lessons. It goes beyond inserting a computer in between you and your student. To expand your music educator skills into the online realm, we encourage you to re-evaluate your music teaching process and adapt it where necessary to keep your students more engaged and learning successfully in the digital environment.

Make technology-based enhancements which are possible for you to incorporate into your online music teaching practice. Use online tools and resources in your lessons to make the learning more accessible and participatory for your students. To begin this section, please view this video that explains the difference between synchronous and asynchronous learning and how you can incorporate both approaches into your online music teaching practice.
