Nieuws 16 juli 2019

16 Sep. 2019 - 14 June 2020

The Orpheus Institute is happy to announce an updated second run of the MOOC on Artistic Research in Music, which will start on 16 September 2019.

Artistic Research in Music – an Introduction is a free online course which ran for the first time as an instructor-paced MOOC, with a new module being released every two weeks, from 28 January until 5 May 2019.

During this first run we gathered valuable feedback from the learners. We started evaluating the content and are now finishing the updated version of the course.

The second run will launch on 16 September 2019 as a self-paced MOOC and will be available until 14 June 2020. 'Self-paced' means that all content will be available immediately.
