Friday, October 8, 2021 - 11:00 to 12:00

Overview of the topic:

Music carries with it more than just feelings, it can be a powerful vehicle for information. Research has proven that music affects the body in positive ways: it massages organs, reduces stress and increases learning. This session explores how to harness music in the best way to support learning. It will explain how to use music to evoke emotion, improve timing and lay the platform to build reinforcement. It will also identify how to break pre-occupation by using non-commercial music as well as demonstrate how to simply create your own music using inexpensive software applications.

Key outcomes:

  • Discuss at least six (6) ways in which music can be used to enhance learning
  • Identify how to use music effectively within their own learning environment
  • Explore how different music and musical styles can be used to influence behaviour
  • Identify where to obtain (or create) music which is suitable for a training context.
  • Discuss the pros and cons of using production music versus popular music.
