Popular music has established itself as a competent and qualified field in higher music education in Europe. Its position in institutions and degrees varies, as in some it is the main musical style and in some it is taught alongside other musical styles. This pre-conference session invites people to discuss topics addressing issues specifically relevant to popular music education, such as curriculum, contents of courses, assessment and collaboration with music industry. The pre-conference also welcomes topics for discussion from participants. Through this online session we also aim to create new networks among teachers, students and staff in order to continue collaboration between institutions and people.
THE FUTURE STUDENT
Strengthening our role at the time of online teaching&learning
Over the last months, online teaching and learning have been playing a main role in our education. We might have been start questioning our position in relation to our teachers, to our fellow students, to our education itself. We might have felt at times the need to keep our motivation high and increase personal exchanges in school. How have different European Institutions and students answered social distancing? How has the continuation of music education of high quality been ensured? What’s the impact on our future as students and, above all, how can we raise our voice in order to create better communication with department lead under these turbulent circumstances?
A close look at intensive short-term student mobility
Have you ever imagined an European network of Institutions where students would be able to move freely from one to another? We all know the Erasmus Programme - it has been a great opportunity for many of us. Now, imagine to be able to move from your own institution to another (or more!) within one academic year in the form of a short-term intensive exchange. What is your idea about that? What could make the student exchange more active and successful? Come share your voice with us!
The role of the student council.
Have we, students, seriously considered the main field of action of the student council? Each and every institution functions differently because of the difference of the scopes and the interactions between departments. Once we deeply understand the nature of the council, then we can figure out how to interface with the department lead in order to make proposal (including master classes, learning equipment, scholarships) enforce our rights, and better understand how the higher music education system works in our own country. This conference session is for all those who want to better know how to play an active role in the student life.
