Subject: Call for papers

** The Music and Science list is managed by the Institute of Musical
Research ( as a bulletin board and discussion
forum for researchers working at the shared boundaries of science and
music. ** MESSAGE FOLLOWS: On Monday 13 May 2013 the Music Department
at the University of York will be hosting a seminar day funded by The
Higher Education Academy as part of their discipline workshop and
seminar series, entitled:

Creative teaching for creative learning in higher academic music education

Creativity and creative skills are recognised as key attributes for
music students. This event will bring together higher music education
colleagues to learn about, share and discuss their experiences of
teaching creatively to facilitate creative learning, focusing on the
processes and techniques of creative teaching, particularly those
connected to academic, rather than practical learning.

The event will:

- explore and explain how lecturers conceptualise creativity;

- demonstrate how music lecturers construct their academic teaching to
develop creative skills in students;

- provide significant insights into our understanding of the
intersection of creative teaching and creative learning.

The seminar will explore creative teaching in higher music learning
focusing on academic (rather than practical) areas, although there
will inevitably be some overlap as practical work and composition will
be discussed within the parameters of academic teaching. The event
will feature presentations from 1) Keynote speaker (Dr Pamela Burnard,
Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge); 2) Invited speakers
working in higher music education; 3) A reflective student feedback
