Associate Professor, Music Education

June 2016 Innovation Fellow

Fellowship Project & Instructional Interests

I am interested in using technology to help my students make more meaningful connections between music education research and the practice of music education in schools and communities. I plan to use the applications Tableau and JMP Pro 12 within my graduate level Music-Ed 621: Research in Music Education course to provide students with hands-on, collaborative experiences in examining music education-related data sets via a variety of easily understandable visual arrays. I hope these learning experiences will help my students to more easily interpret results within and across data sets, make valid conclusions about data, and generate implications for the field of music education.

In January 2017 Sara Jones and Lisa Lehmberg will be facilitating a professional development for Springfield Public School music teachers. Teachers will follow along as we explore exciting, user-friendly apps to energize teaching and learning in music education. While these apps are not music-centric per se, they can enhance student learning and increase participation both inside and outside of school. Participants will be introduced to multiple apps and will be guided through basic usage of each. Lisa and Sara will also provide a list of other education-related apps for participants to explore on their own.

News! Lisa Lehmberg and Sara Jones are going to present a clinic at the Massachusetts Music Educators Association Conference titled, “Innovative Technologies that Increase Student Engagement.” The session targets practicing music teachers from across the state and focuses on ways to enhance student learning and increase participation.
