Just as an example of what TeacherLink schedules have looked like in the past, I have created the following mock-up flyer of a strumstick camp at Tasma House. This format has been quite successful in the past, as I have organized similar activities for musicians, Larry Conger, Don Pedi, Stephen Seifert, Butch Ross, Christie Burns, and Steve Eulberg. I also used this type of schedule for the first two annual events of the Memphis Dulcimer Gathering & Folk Festival, which provided instruction by Larry Conger, Don Pedi, Rick Thum, Larkin Kelly Bryant, Bill Taylor, Jim Miller, Karen Mueller, Janita Baker, and Lee Cagle.
The aim of this educational program format is to
- set instructors and students at ease and allow for immersion in topics being taught, with learning happening throughout the event, as students and instructors build relationships that continue long after; and
- promote personal progress for everyone -- teachers and students alike -- via authentic learning.
