Relation to other modules
The Jazz & Pop department regularly invites guest teachers to discuss a wide range of subjects.
Some examples of guest teacher classes hosted separately throughout the study year are master classes, workshops, lab classes and clinics.
Attendance is compulsory at guest teacher classes that concern the student's own instrument of specialization; otherwise it is optional. In case of locally organized events, the attendance requirement only applies to those studying at the same location; in all other cases, attendance is required of all students of the relevant main subject course, irrespective of their study location.
If the guest teacher's class is clashing with regular classes students can decide to give priority to the guest teacher's class. The student should contact the teacher of the regular class on beforehand, to sign out for that lesson.
Mode(s) of instruction
Virtual classroom video conference with audio where max four students in four different locations and one instructor in another location, communicate by seeing each other, talking and listening to each other equally. The Instructor has access to a whiteboard, application sharing, desktop sharing and document sharing and may hand this privileges to any participants of the conference.
Apart from the video conference a high quality stereo audio stream is open at the same time via source connect. That way students and instructor can listen to music from any source of the group and talk about it simultaneously. Individual lessons where deemed necessary by the instructor.
To support the lessons video tutorial about the core information of the topics might be provided.
Due to more complex theoretical topics larger video conferences with more than four students will be provided. These classes have lecture character. All lectures are recorded and though available for students later on.
