I’d like to take this opportunity to share with you a very important development in TI:ME’s membership procedures. At our November meeting, the Board of Directors voted unanimously to approve a proposal regarding our institutional membership. First, a little history…
In the early days of TI:ME, the most important function the organization served was to provide in-service courses to our members, and to people who might become members. The content of those courses was entirely prescribed by TI:ME; this was the case mostly because, in the 1990s, there were so few music teachers who were sophisticated users of technology. Now, with technology so ubiquitous, the functions of some of our coursework have become more flexible and more advanced.
Also in those early days, there were several institutions that were closely associated with TI:ME, in large part because the founders of TI:ME were affiliated with those institutions. The institutions became members of TI:ME, and were therefore allowed to offer our courses. Over the years, the fees that came along with joining as an institutional member came to be viewed as prohibitive, so institutions started falling away from our roster.
Experience unparalleled professional growth, inspiration, and motivation through:
