The event is held on occasion of celebrating CEMPE’s first five years. It also marks the establishment and the beginning work of the AEC and CEMPE-run platform Learning and Teaching in Music Performance Education (LATIMPE).

Main topics: Student involvement and teacher collaboration

In recent years, student involvement has been a central topic in higher music education. Many argue that students should be the central agents in their own learning processes, and that teachers and higher education institutions should strive to empower students and engage them more actively. Student-oriented, student-active or student-centred learning methods have become common concepts.

Teacher collaboration is at the same time an evolving topic in many higher music education practices. In many cases teacher collaboration and student involvement are also intertwined. But what do these concepts mean? What does a “student-centred” practice look like, and what do teachers collaborate about? What are the benefits of involving students more actively and of increased collaboration in learning and teaching practices? What do student involvement and teacher collaboration mean in learning contexts ranging from one-to-one contexts to cross-disciplinary or cross-institutional practices? These are some of the questions the conference seeks to illuminate.
