Faculty and Staff Development Session: Learn About MTEC-111

Thursday / November 13, 2014 / 1:00 pm
David Friend Recital Hall
921 Boylston Street
Boston
MA
United States
02115

Electronic Production and Design chair Michael Bierylo and assorted EPD faculty members will teach you everything you want to know about MTEC-111, Introduction to Music Technology, the essential technology course that is required of all Berklee students.

All Berklee faculty and staff, as well as our articulation partner schools, are welcome to attend this session in-person or via the live stream.

As the official description for this course explains, "One of the most significant challenges facing musicians today is mastering the skills required to adapt continually to a changing technology base. Musicians today must understand and be prepared for the fact that this technology base is moving more rapidly than it can be assimilated. The course topics give an overview of all aspects of the current technology with the primary goal of enabling students to make intelligent decisions in evaluating future technological needs."

The faculty presenters will provide an overview of the course and present strategies to deliver the course most effectively. This session will be helpful for anyone who teaches MTEC-111 or an equivalent Introduction to Music Technology course at a Berklee partner school. It is also helpful to any faculty member at Berklee or a partner school, regardless of what you teach, as you will learn about the kinds of technology students are prepared to use in your courses. Please RSVP online or email graduatestudies@berklee.edu.

Lunch provided to all who come in person. This event is in the David Friend Recital Hall from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Living in the Matrix and Its Implications for Understanding Racism

Saturday / November 8, 2014 / 10:00 am
Steve Heck Room
1140 Boylston Street
Boston
MA
United States
02215

In this session, we will provide a framework for understanding systemic racism and provide opportunities to use this framework as a lense to apply it to our own lives, our work, and our communities.

You cannot challenge something you don't know exists. At a basic level, our work involves helping individuals and organizations to create new lenses, moving from an individual understanding of racism, that is, prejudice and discrimination based on "race," to a systemic understanding. Moving from an individual lens to a systemic one has profound implications for how we understand ourselves, our relationships, and our work. We begin to see and understand things we previously didn't know existed.

  • Discuss racism on an individual and systemic level
  • Raise awareness and understanding of systemic practices, culture, and policies that support the privileged and halt the oppressed
  • Learn how to address these situations and deconstruct them
  • Open to all students, staff, and faculty

Sponsored by the Office for Diversity and Inclusion. Facilitated by Community Change, Inc.

Snacks, lunch, and dinner provided.

Space is limited! RSVP to Josh Crary: jcrary@berklee.edu
