Earthsongs: Indigenous Ways of Teaching and Learning
Kennedy, Mary Copland
International Journal of Music Education, v27 n2 p169-182 2009
"Earthsongs" was the third in a series of courses designed and facilitated by Dr. Lorna Williams, Canada Research Chair in Aboriginal Education at the University of Victoria. Subtitled "Learning and teaching in an Indigenous world," these courses offer undergraduate and graduate students from the Faculty of Education and across the university, faculty members, and community members the opportunity to be engaged in an experiential educational practice and to learn first hand how teaching and learning occur in an Indigenous world. This paper provides an in-depth description of the course followed by a commentary section where the views of the writer, another faculty member, two students, and one of the artists-in-residence are discussed. The final section looks to the future, offering implications for music education both locally and globally. (Contains 1 table and 8 notes.)
