As we come to the end of 2020, here’s an update from the Pedagogy and Professional Development team.
Our aim in the pedagogy and professional development project is to document a range of understandings of Ethno pedagogy; and to describe and theorise how these understandings are translated into practice. We are specifically interested in pedagogical and professional development values, principles and practices, within the context of Ethno-World.
We are also interested in the ways in which these values, principles and practices are put into practice at local, national and global levels. Examples of the ideas we are exploring are transformational music-making; multi-faceted musicianship; and global musical citizenship: we will value your thoughts on these and other topics you highlight. In brief, we are interested in how and why Ethno pedagogy is described as ‘magic’.
