NAfME Learning Center
The NAfME Learning Center is NAfME’s online learning management system for supporting the ongoing professional learning needs of music educators. The NAfME Learning Center houses our live webinars, special mini-conferences or summer packages, as well as the NAfME Academy. Powered by a platform called MapleLMS, the Learning Center requires you to create an account, which is then linked to your NAfME account, regardless of your membership status in the association.
NAfME Learning Center Benefits
The NAfME Learning Center allows users to:
Attend Live Event NAfME Webinars: Professional development webinars on a wide variety of music education topics are held regularly throughout the academic year. You can earn a professional development certificate within the Learning Center by completing a professional development questionnaire. Even if you cannot attend the live event, make sure to register for webinars of interest so that you may access the recording after the event. For information about upcoming webinars, visit the Events Calendar.
Subscribe to the NAfME Academy: Approximately one week after live webinars conclude, the recordings are moved to the NAfME Academy, where they are organized into categories and individual courses. Currently, the NAfME Academy contains more than 150 professional development courses based on webinar recordings, which you can start and complete at your own pace. Access to the NAfME Academy is free to NAfME members, but it requires a subscription confirmation annually. Non-members may subscribe for $95 per year. For more information, visit NAfME Academy.
Track Your Progress: Whether you attend a live webinar or complete a course in the NAfME Academy, the NAfME Learning Center tracks all of your professional learning in one location. Because every state department of education has different professional development requirements, NAfME recommends contacting your site, district, or state education administrators to learn how these continuing education units can be applied to your individual situation.
