AOSA supports members through online learning opportunities.:
- Professional Learning Networks offer AOSA members access to Orff Schulwerk Master Educators in a multi-session format including learning and discussion on topics important to today’s Orff educator. These multi-session PLNs give educators an opportunity to connect, communicate, and collaborate across technology taking deep dives into concepts and ideas important to Orff Schulwerk and music education. Offered as live events at scheduled times, all virtual events are also recorded for future review. PLN’s are archived in the AOSA Resource Library.
