SESSION: Connect and Engage


The information age has put an infinite amount of knowledge at our fingertips. Discover and explore over 135 available resources online (and some offline) for personal growth as a teacher. Discern the resources that best fit your needs as a teacher and discover tools and practices for engaging in online content without experiencing overwhelm.

“I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of old ones.” -John Cage



Amy’s presentation was dynamic, energetic, fun and full of great material for the students to add to their knowledge. The detailed attention given for each resource was a tremendous help to my Piano Pedagogy students. She has given us the perfect package of resources to help us learn how to teach each student according to their abilities. Very well done!

-Kathryn Grile, retired Piano Pedagogy Teacher at Taylor University

At the Ohio Music Teachers conference a few years ago, I attended Amy’s session “Connect and engage: online professional development resources.” What a great talk it was! Amy has an immense store of knowledge, but the thing that makes her stand out is that she is able to communicate what she knows in a way that is as interesting as it is informative. As I was attending the session, I found myself wishing that all my current and former college students could hear her – entertaining, elegant as well as educational. Amy Chaplin is the real deal. I recommend her to everyone.
