After 9 months of research, which involved conducting surveys and interviews in Spain, Ireland, and Estonia, and examining existing training programmes related to key topics identified by a diverse group of educators, the DISK team has designed a training itinerary around the following 4 themes:

  • Safety & Ethics for Music Teachers in the Digital Era
  • Collaboration, Teaching Environment & New Technologies
  • Online Music Pedagogy
  • Specific Digital Skills for Music Teachers

An online training course has been created around these topics, targeting music educators (music theory and instrumental teachers, ensemble directors, music school administrators etc.) who wish to upskill and/or reskill to become better teachers and/or managers within the educational context we are addressing. It is designed to benefit a diverse range of music educators, from teachers in music schools to university lecturers. Participants have the flexibility to register for any or all four modules based on their preferences and learning needs.  Upon completion of the module, students will receive a certificate of continuing education from the University of Tartu, Estonia. In this link, you can review the syllabus outlining the topics that will be covered in each course module.

Education must embody inclusivity, emphasising respect and appreciation for diversity. Where it is manifested regardless of disability, race, skin colour, gender, language, linguistic culture, religion, political or other opinion, national, ethnic, indigenous or social origin, property, birth, age or any other status. All pupils should feel valued, respected, included, and listened to. Inclusion takes an individual approach to learners.
