During the first day of the Training, organised online, participants were introduced to MusiQuE’s structure and procedures, and to the roles and responsibilities of a Peer Reviewer.

The session in Lyon included a role-play session, where the participants had the opportunity to act as peer reviewers, which enabled the participants to familiarise themselves with the different stages of a review procedure, such as the site-visit.

On the third day of the Training, feedback on the role-play was exchanged and the steps following the site visit, until the completion of the procedure, were presented. The Training session also included a World Café, which allowed the participants to take part in discussions in small groups about the challenges and opportunities during a review procedure. The Training session concluded with a final plenary session with the contribution of Michael Wilder, President of the National Association of Schools of Music in the US (NASM).

26 participants, including representatives from higher music education institutions across Europe and beyond, attended this year’s edition.

Upon completion of the Training, participants are invited to apply to become a Peer Reviewer and be a part of the MusiQuE Peer Reviewers’ Register. More information about the Register and the online application form can be found via the following link.

Training sessions for current and prospective Peer Reviewers are offered every year. MusiQuE encourages anyone interested in becoming a Peer Reviewer to take part in at least one Training.
