This course explores the world of digital and communications technology—such as mobile apps, social media, recording technology, and digital imaging—and shows how these resources can be of value to a music therapist. Students assemble a collection of skills—a toolbox—that can be used in their practice or research in music therapy. It is understood that students are likely to vary greatly in their knowledge of and skills with these technologies, both as part of their practice of music therapy and in their lives in general. The course design offers flexibility so that all students, regardless of technical proficiency, will find this educational journey interesting and of value to their studies.
