WGI is announcing a partnership with VanderCook and the Music Education Center of America to offer graduate credit for attending WGIcon this coming September. Through the Continuing Education program, teachers may earn credit for attending the convention sessions and completing the necessary coursework that follows. The university offers the course as a retrospective, which allows teachers to register for the credit even after attending the professional development event.
“Our goal in this partnership is to offer a professional development opportunity for educators, specifically in the realm of the indoor marching arts,” said WGI Chief Executive Officer Ron Nankervis. “It is crucial that we support future generations of music educators because we wouldn’t be where we are today without them.”
