Proposed Creative Europe project – to which project are you looking for partners?
Sector or field Potential partner should have knowledge in music,
mathematics or ICT. Partner can be training consortium, music
or ICT company which have expertise for example producing
music, creating sounds or managering music. Gaming branch
companies are hoped to get involved as an Expert by
experience and bringing knowledge how to create music for
games, coding and working life-oriented project models.
Project is for young adults, and it connects different forms of
education and involves students, teaching staff and instructors
in these branches.
Description or summary of the proposed project:
The creative field needs new openings and approaches to
recover from the crisis caused by the pandemic. New digital
technologies and media have multiplied the opportunities in
content industries to an extent where education is truly
challenged. Digitalization brings new activities and earning
opportunities to the music industry, and the Gaming industry
seeks frequently workforce and top Talent internationally.
Multi-disciplinary, diverse and international learning contexts to
ensure competitiveness is highly called for.
The purpose of this project is to build skills through new
curricula and training opportunities and raise awareness of
sound design and bridging the gap between creative contents
The aim of project is in the need to attract more girls into the
sectors, but also in the need to be able to develop specialized
training opportunities and real-life joint projects as part of
music, math, tech and gaming education.
Music coding and technology as well as ICT and coding are
strongly male-dominated areas, whereas music and the arts in
general appeals much more equally, if not even dominantly, to
females. Approaching music coding and sound design from
both artistic and technical perspectives has proven as one way
to increase the interest of both sexes.
On the other hand, now there is a real need to strengthen
music branch competitivity and diversify the expertise of the
students in this branch. This will be accomplished by for
example connecting game and sound production to the branch
and also by developing student’s expertise in coding and
understanding the gaming branch.
Teamworking skills, creativity and innovation are important
skills in present working life. Practical projects in multidisciplinary teams will provide increased opportunities from
these perspectives. Teaching staff will get skills in instructing
and facilitating pedagogical creative processes which they can
utilize in education in any branch.
1)Development of learning modules for Music Coding & Sound
Design for training-of- trainers, hosted by each partner
- Participants will consist of chosen teachers of music, music
technology, math, ICT and coding as well as games
- Developing a multi-disciplinary approach coupled with
project-oriented learning will be a core horizontal approach
throughout the project.
2) Participating teachers will develop an intensive course
concept for students, that will enable co-creation and
production of joint projects/assignments in order to create
soundscapes using music coding. Support networking and
familiarizing with the music & gaming industries throughout the
partner countries. Students will get an opportunity to be able
to participate the developing the course.
3) The multi-disciplinary course will be piloted in the partner
countries. Students will learn the sufficients skills in order to
be able to lead creative multi-disciplinary teams. The teaching
stuff will also learn the pedagogical guiding and the process of
the facilitation regardless of any field.
4) Learning modules can be integrated to existing courses in
the different disciplines, be realized as introductory workshops
or be built to independent courses and realized in co-operation
of different partners. The results of the project and the
intensive course will serve as a basis for developing a new
course content and learning models supporting the training in
5) The results of the project will be introduced in the final
meeting of the project.
The project will last for 2-3 years.
