The Teaching Music Online in Higher Education conference is joining up with Music, Education and Technology (MET) to form the SEMPRE MET-TMOHE conference. SEMPRE is delighted to host the joint MET and TMOHE conferences. We came to this exciting partnership in order to support our broad range of conference delegates that come from over 40 countries to share research and practice-based learning on exploring innovative ideas for teaching music with technology.We are excited about the opportunities of connecting our delegates to additional research and developments within music education and technology. The call for papers is open until March 1, 2022 (Extended deadline) – https://easychair.org/cfp/2022-met-tmohe.
Teaching Music Online in Higher Education is an ONLINE research-informed conference on the practice of teaching music online at the Higher Ed/ tertiary levels. The official TMOHE conference website is: teachingmusiconlineinhighered.com. We seek to address aligned topics and challenges faced by teachers, students and school leaders. Researchers, practitioners, and graduate students interested, and/or engaged in how to teach or perform music online, and best practices for teaching and performing music online are invited to join in the conversations and/or present their research in the area. Our delegates come from across the globe to gather together and share their ideas and vision for creating effective and meaningful online music learning and performance for students.
The Sempre MET conference (#sempreMET), now in its 12th year, is a biannual conference that aims to provide opportunities for students, early career researchers and colleagues to present and discuss ideas in a friendly and supportive environment, as well as to provide a meeting point for academics, scholars, teachers, and practitioners who are seeking to form connections and synergies with participants from around the world.
MET aims to celebrate technology’s challenging role(s) and provide a platform for critical discourse and the presentation of scholarly work in the broader fields of digital technologies in:
- music composition and creation
