Following previous accreditation by the National Institute for the Improvement of Education (ZUOV) of fourteen life-long learning courses in June 2022, developed and prepared within project activities 5.1 and 5.2, the implementation of LLL courses has started. On 24 September 2022 teachers from the Academy of Arts University of Novi Sad (P2) – Prof. Ira Prodanov and Assoc. Prof. Milan Milojković, held a course “Improvisation in teaching music” in primary and secondary music school “Isidor Bajić” in Novi Sad. The course, attended by 30 music teachers, focused on explanation and practical demonstration of potentials and benefits of including music improvisation in classes, both in individual and group teaching. Three more LLL courses developed by the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad will take place by the end of the year.
Implementation of LLL courses, aiming at development of music teachers’ digital and entrepreneurial knowledge, attitudes and skills, constitutes project activity 5.3 as part of the work package 5. The main impact of this work package lies in development and strengthening of the network with music professionals and music teachers in primary and secondary (music and general education) schools.
The list of other accredited LLL courses, to be implemented in presence and online within this work package by the end of the project, include: “Digital classical music resources as contribution to the enhancement of music teaching”, “Music in the context of (post)Covid-19 crisis: program concept, audience maintenance, psychological trauma, concert preparation, performer’s motivation”, “Benefits of music in (daily) work with vulnerable groups in all age categories”, “Musical meaning analysis”, “Digital music literacy”, “Music teaching methods in digital environment”, “Artist on stage – gesture, communication, media”, “Music entrepreneurship in music and music education", “Creating digital matrix for children music performance”, “Digital arranging and production of audio and video materials for online music teaching and entertainment-educational platforms”, “Montessori method in solfeggio teaching: including music entrepreneurship in broadening teaching competencies”, “Application of informational technologies in solfeggio teaching: enhancing digital competencies of teachers” and “Digital tools in music education”.
