Conference (2014)





Network of Music Career Development Officers
2014 NYC Conference



19th Annual NETMCDO Conference


Wednesday and Thursday,
January 15 and 16, 2014

Manhattan School of Music

New York City

We're gathering Wednesday-Thursday, January 15-16, 2014, at Manhattan School of Music in NYC and we'd love to have you come help us tackle this ambitious and multi-faceted topic. We're excited to be taking on [drum roll, please . . . ]
 
How effective are we
Exploring New Approaches to Assessment

 

This year we're putting assessment in a larger context and looking at it through multiple vantage points: those of students/alumni, faculty, and administration.

 

We're going both broad and deep in sessions designed to help us:
•       understand and communicate the value of what we do
•       learn how we are perceived by our institutions and communities
•       help musicians learn how to assess their own work
 
Many institutions are struggling with assessment expectations—from administrators, to parents, and accrediting bodies. We're looking at new insights into reflective practice, so we can . . .

 

Value what we measure. Measure what we value.

 

We will look at the question of “What are we measuring and why?” from the perspectives of the institution, the career development program/office, and possibly the most important -- the individual artist.

 

We'll be applying these new assessment ideas to our institutions, programs, workshops, teaching, counseling, and our own career trajectories.

Who attends our conference?

 

We generally have 40 – 45 music schools and organizations represented at the conference, from universities and colleges, to training orchestras and conservatories. We’ve had a wide range of participants: career center professionals, faculty, support staff, and independent career counselors... Some attendees are brand new to the career services field and some general university career services staff seek to enhance their offerings for music students. This variety makes for rich discussions and great information and idea sharing. So bring along a colleague from your institution to get even more out of the conference.


NETMCDO holistic view: We have grown to realize that teaching, performing, advising, and administering are all part of being in career development -- so be prepared to be challenged on all fronts!
