Über diesen Kurs

What do children need from education now, and in the future? How is technology best used in teaching and learning? How can innovative approaches to education be reconciled with established, traditional ones? What does student-centred learning really mean? This five module course is not just for classroom or ensemble music educators. It’s suitable for anyone interested in creativity-infused education, in contemporary education issues, and in the integration and use of digital technology. It’s designed to challenge old paradigms, to inspire innovative and creative pedagogical philosophies, and to develop your ability to critically respond to the latest research. We’ll visit schools with vastly different approaches to learning and teaching, and meet inspiring teachers and principals. We’ll venture inside the classroom to closely observe how technology is integrated with music education – or how it’s decidedly not! We’ll talk to international leaders and experts about innovative and traditional approaches to music education, and I’ll provide insights from my own practice as well as from some of my students. I’ll be provoking you to think critically and creatively, to develop your own ideas and theories around students’ educational needs and the impact of digital technologies, now and into the future.

Es un curso inspirador, nos llena de esperanza e invita a que esta hermosa "disciplina" de la música lleve la batuta en el ámbito educativo del siglo 21.

Written with a dual focus and eye on future education paradigms. Not to mention engaging with real-world conflicts from parents, schools, curriculum and ideas. This is something administrators and music educators of all schools should engage it.

Such an excellent course!! I would highly recommend it to music teachers, musicians, or any curious music lover. What made it really great was the wealth of different sources & videos, exhaustive reading lists, and assignments which not only helped build critical thinking & writing style, but enthusiasm of the peers on the course and our exchanges in learning. Thank you! I hope there's one to follow this soon!

Excellent course. Gave me lots to think about in my own teaching practice. I really appreciated the different perspectives presented in the videos, and the writing assignments really forced me to develop my own thoughts on the issues.

The course was well structured and thought provoking. As an experienced teacher (over 20 years) it was an effective way of surveying some of the current trends. I recommend the course to all music teachers. I look forward to more courses from the University of Sydney and Dr James Humberstone.

What a great course and resource for music teachers. Illuminating, thought-provoking, and relevant. I really look forward to your next MOOC with some more practical examples of the use of technology in the music classroom. I leave the course with lots of new ideas, fresh energy, and an openness towards re-evaluating what's important in the music classroom. I also have a new appreciation for all that technology has to offer. While it is daunting, it is also tremendously exciting. The course was well-produced, engaging, and the interviews were fantastic. Amazing resource, so happy this exists!

Very good course! It shows many distincts points of view and a very broad and contemporary perspective of music education. I learned a lot. The materials and videos are very well produced and good to watch. I do recommend this course. I thank and congratulate Prof. Humberstone for the very good job.
