Introduction to Music and Communities is designed to act as either a stand-alone option or as a pre-requisite for entry to the Music and Communities Programme in Year III. The course is designed to give an overview of the Music and Communities Profession and the skills (academic and practical) required to excel in the professional field. The course is delivered through a series of lectures and practical workshops designed to engage students in a variety of learning and teaching styles, peer learning and reflective practice
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
|Campus||Old Aberdeen||Sustained Study||No|
The course will consist of workshops that will prepare students for a community placement. This will allow them to understand and engage with theoretical work that will then be put into practice as participants in peer-group contexts before participating in real situations in communities.
Workshops will allow students to try out ideas within peer-groups, undergoing peer-assessment activities as well as formal assessment themselves, as well as looking at how to evaluate their own practice.
The Community Placement will allow students to undertake activities with a variety of local agencies under the guidance of an expert. Agencies who have expressed an interest in becoming partners are Scottish Ensemble, Woodend Arts Association, Station House Media Unit, Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen College and various City and Shire council supported activities, as well as community activities managed by university staff away from the university.
Placement will consist of 7 pairs of serial days throughout the duration of the course which are undertaken in pairs.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
There are no assessments for this course.
