Using ZOOM for Engaging Students in Music Performance Lectures and Tutorial

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingConference proceedingpeer-review


The unexpected, prolonged class suspension experienced in Hong Kong and elsewhere in AY2019/20 due to social unrest and the global pandemic has drawn our attention throughout academia to the needs of harnessing online teaching, learning, and assessment. Universities on all continents have already experienced a massive increase in the use of both synchronous and asynchronous online course delivery, with ZOOM suddenly emerging as a normative platform worldwide. The ongoing health crisis is necessitating a continuous transition to online learning into and beyond the coming school year. How have educators of varying disciplines adapted to the new contexts and approaches presented by the ZOOM platform? This presentation focuses on the use of the online meeting tool ZOOM in teaching, learning, and assessment of music performance courses in the university setting. The presenter will share his experience of conducting interactive online classes with the platform, including the functional challenges, limitations, and advantages offered in the alternative mode in keeping students engaged over prolonged periods. By focusing on the non-traditional performing arts classroom setting, the presentation will offer instructors of other disciplines insights into course design when conducting teaching and learning online.
