Registration is now open for the TUNE Virtual Multiplier Event, “TUNE Connecting Folk: International cooperation and exchange through higher education in traditional music”, which will take place online on May 5, 2023.
TUNE (Traditional Music Undergraduate Network in Europe) is a 3-year Erasmus+ Cooperation Partnership project (2021–2024) that aims to promote strategic cooperation between five European higher music education institutions through the development of an innovative joint module in traditional music based on blended mobility.
As the first of three Multiplier Events, this online event will reflect on the results following the completion of the first phase of the project: three “Intensive Weeks” and the development of digital educational content and an online learning platform. The progress of the joint module will also be presented and discussed.
Key questions to be addressed will include:
- How does international cooperation and exchange in the field of traditional/folk music higher education foster the development of intercultural understanding?
- What musical and social skills do students and teachers need to develop in order to foster intercultural understanding?
- How can we create environments of real intercultural interaction and community-building that have long-term effects for our students, and for teachers?
- How can we facilitate staff-based knowledge exchange within the field of traditional/folk music higher education?
