Announcing the first MOOC on Artistic Research in MusicNews October 23, 2018
The Orpheus Institute is proud to announce the very first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Artistic Research in Music.
A MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) is a free online course available for anyone to enroll. The Orpheus Institute announces its first MOOC on Artistic Research in Music, which will offer an introduction to the most relevant research tools, techniques and methodologies as well as the key concepts of artistic research in music.
The pioneering course is carefully curated by the Orpheus Institute. Their artist-researchers are joined by experts from international institutions across the globe, who share their experience and understanding. The course is intended to be accessible to musicians with an expert artistic practice and some engagement with its theory, history and context – as well as an inquiring mind. Masters or advanced Bachelors students will find this relevant, as well as researchers beginning their PhD, teachers at conservatories or universities, and independent artists wanting to engage with this exciting field.
Artistic Research in Music – an Introduction is a free online course which will run for 12 weeks with a new module being released every two weeks. It is expected for a learner to spend 3 to 4 hours of effort per week. By the end of the course, through completing the assignments, learners will effectively have produced a complete research proposal.
