Sometimes teachers are the learners. Teaching an introduction to music education course served as a profound and formative experience in our development as music teacher educators. Through the design and instruction of the course, we were challenged to strengthen our understanding of pedagogical concepts and develop our own identities as music teacher educators, while simultaneously fostering the developing identities of undergraduate music education students. This session aims to share some of the layers of learning outcomes for us and the students in the course, while showcasing how this experience dramatically impacted our thinking and practice.
