MOOC

Een MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) is een gratis online cursus die voor iedereen toegankelijk is. Het Orpheus Instituut lanceerde zijn eerste MOOC in januari 2019 en bracht een geüpdatete versie uit in september 2019.

Artistic Research in Music - an Introduction

a MOOC curated by the Orpheus Institute

MOOC's bieden kwalitatieve onderwijsbelevingen op grote schaal en zijn een toegankelijke en flexibele manier om nieuwe skills te leren. De eerste MOOC over artistiek onderzoek in muziek geeft een introductie tot de meest relevante onderzoekstools, -technieken en -methodes alsook tot de belangrijke concepten van artistiek onderzoek in muziek. De cursus is beschikbaar op edX, het platform bij uitstek voor online educatie.

Artistic Research in Music – an Introduction is een gratis online cursus die voor het eerst beschikbaar was als een instructor-paced MOOC, waarbij elke twee weken een nieuwe module werd gelanceerd, van 28 januari tot en met 5 mei 2019. De verwachte tijdsbesteding is 3 tot 4 uur per week. Bij het einde van de cursus, na het maken van de oefeningen, zal men een volledig onderzoeksvoorstel geschreven hebben. 

Een update van de cursus werd gelanceerd op 16 september 2019 in de vorm van een self-paced MOOC. Dit wil zeggen dat alle content meteen beschikbaar zal zijn en dit tot 14 juni 2020.

About the course

Artistic research is one of the most vibrant areas of creative thought in music – in the academic and professional worlds, but also among artists of all kinds who want to develop their practice by working and thinking coherently through its implications, questions, context and potential. Artistic research (along with its various cognate versions) puts musicians themselves – their practices, their knowledge, experience and imagination – at the centre of the production of new understanding, knowledge, vision and discourses for music. In the current moment of great musical richness and diversity, this is more important than ever. Future or historical, acoustic or technological, performer, composer or producer – if you want to participate in this exciting and expanding field (or just want to know what’s going on) this course is for you.

The course is curated by the Orpheus Institute, Ghent – a world-leading centre for artistic research in music. 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.
