MusiQuE Training 2021

The MusiQuE Board and Office are looking forward to welcoming you to the next Peer-reviewers Training Workshop, on 25 October, 3 and 4 November 2021!

The workshop aims to offer elements of training and professional development to potential and confirmed MusiQuE peer reviewers: representatives of higher music education institutions, students in higher music education, representatives of music schools and representatives of organisations from the music profession – experienced or not – interested in becoming peer reviewers for MusiQuE in the future or in reflecting on their experience and practice as peer reviewers, or with a general interest in quality assurance and accreditation in conservatoires.

Practical details

Monday 25th October (13:45 – 17:00 CEST) via Zoom;
Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th November in person at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, in Antwerp, Belgium.
All participants are invited to attend the first day of training (25 October) online via Zoom. The second and third days of the training (3 and 4 November) are part of the AEC Congress and will be held at the Antwerp Royal Conservatoire in Belgium, as one of the pre-congress workshops. Participants will therefore be invited to join in person, should travel conditions remain favourable. In case travel restrictions will impend on holding the event in Antwerp, the training will be organised online in full.
