The Michigan Music Education Association (MMEA) is an organization through which music educators at all levels and in all fields develop professionally and communicate with each other. The association works closely with other agencies and organizations involved in education. MMEA members engage in music teaching or related activities at all institutional levels from pre-school through higher education. Collegiate chapters are located on most college and university campuses.
Through its professional conferences, publications, and cooperative work with other organizations, MMEA provides leadership, advocacy, inspiration, and guidance in the area of research for PK-16 music educators in Michigan.
The Higher Education committee of MMEA highlights new scholarship relating to music teaching and learning. Research-to-Practice sessions featured at the annual Michigan Music Conference (MMC) provide educators with current research to inform and improve their programs.
MMEA Research Poster Session – “Meet the Authors” is a forum for the dissemination and discussion of new scholarship relating to music teaching and learning. Submissions are invited for poster presentations only, held Friday, January 25. Literature reviews and works in progress are welcome.
The submission deadline for the 2019 MMEA Research Poster Session is Friday, November 9th, 2018. Please see the official Call for Posters 2018-2019 for further details.
Posters will be displayed on Friday and feature the work of professors, graduate students, and in-service teachers. SCECH credits are available for both participants and observers.
All poster presenters must be members of NAfME/MMEA or one of the other Michigan Music Conference (MMC) sponsoring organizations (MSBOA, MSVMA, MASTA), and must register for the entire conference. Information about registration can be found at www.michiganmusicconference.org.
