BTOT 2016

Berklee Teachers on Teaching (BTOT) is a vibrant gathering of teachers learning together through collaboration. We express and share who we are as educators, artists, and human beings. We explore and challenge the boundaries of what we already know, and seek to inspire the student and artist within each one of us. BTOT nourishes us in our commitment to engage students in the finest contemporary music education.

BTOT is presented in support of the college’s strategic plan to position Berklee as the leader of a national and international dialogue to advance discussions about the value of music education and pedagogy. Each year, more than 1,000 faculty members and administrators from across the college come together for two days to discuss and reflect on topics ranging from teaching strategies to health and wellness to musical performance and technology.

View details on this year's keynote speaker and more.

BTOT 2016: Widening Our Circle

This year’s theme, "Widening Our Circle," invites us to explore the ways in which we—as an institution and as individuals—can become better educators and learners by challenging, examining, and broadening our own views and perceptions. We widen our circle when we more purposefully ensure that all voices are heard; embrace new approaches to our teaching and professional practice; collaborate across disciplines, divisions, and institutions; or dare to transcend our limitations and make more porous the boundaries of what we think we know.
