The 2013 Symposium on Music Teacher Education will be held September 26-29, 2013, at the University of North Carolina – Greensboro. This biennial event is organized by the Society for Music Teacher Education (SMTE) in conjunction with the National Association for Music Education (NAfME). The purpose of this fifth symposium is to sustain the professional conversations that have characterized the first four symposia held since 2005; to engage a broad constituency of practitioners and policy makers in these conversations; and to articulate our shared responsibility for music teacher education. Toward this shared responsibility, we invite participation from music teacher educators, deans/directors of schools of music, state and local fine arts supervisors, state policy officials associated with certification, licensure, and school improvement, K-12 educators, and graduate students in music education.
Details regarding the symposium theme and the call for proposals will be announced soon. Please check the SMTE website (http://smte.us) for further information and updates.
