At the invitation of ENO-NL, I will participate in the German-Dutch Colloquium for Research in Arts Education on 24 September in Berlin. As one of five Dutch and five German researchers, I will briefly present my research and join a discussion about Digitalisation and arts education.
ENO-NL is the partnership of Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF), National Centre of Expertise for Cultural Education and Amateur Arts (LKCA), Radboud University and Amsterdam University of the Arts (HKA).
MoLab – short for music education laboratory – is part of the Bachelor of music (music in education) of ArtEZ University of the Arts in Enschede. In this years course, the students work on real assignments of several clients (Ableton Benelux, Méér Muziek in de Klas, Netwerk Muziekdocenten Pabo).
On the 25th of May, music education students of ArtEZ University of the Arts will present the outcome of their moLab assignments by means of a poster presentation.
Also, Dr. Luc Nijs will give a Masterclass on Interactive technology in music education and his Music Paint Machine.
One of the students groups is collaborating with computer science students of the University of Twente and they are working on a new rhythm app for music education.
During the course, the students also gave feedback on a game that was being developed for Cross-Line festival. This feedback resulted in adjustments of the design of the game. The game will also be presented on may 25th.
If you want to join the poster presentation and masterclass, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
For the second year, music teacher students (ODM) of the conservatory of ArtEZ, University of the Arts in Enschede (NL) will form a music education lab (moLab).
During this weekly course the students will test existing, digital technology (apps and gadgets) for use in music education in primary and secondary education. They also have to come up with new ways of using the existing equipment or software and think of innovation in music teaching. The students then have to test these innovations with the target group, using (fake) prototypes. For inspiration and support, collaboration will be established with creative technology students of the University of Twente.
During the second half of the course, the students will work on real assignments, provided by several clients (Ableton Benelux, Méér Muziek in de Klas, Netwerk Muziekdocenten Pabo). The outcome will be presented on may, 25th, 2018 (poster presentation).
MoLab will be monitored. Results will be used in the current research.
