What Is Your Favorite New Teaching Trick?

It’s course prep time again. That means it’s time to review all of the harebrained pedagogical ideas I’ve had over the last year, and start making the decisions as to what’s in and what’s out. 

But one person can only have so many ideas, and they are certainly not all good, or at least not as great as they could be. That’s where community comes in. So tell me, what are your ideas for teaching music history (or other courses, music or otherwise) this year? Have a brilliant idea? Have a half-baked one? Share them in the comments, get ideas from others too, and let’s have our best year of teaching yet. Picture comments supported!
