TEAM. The Teacher Education Academy for Music, Future-Making, Mobility and Networking in Europe is a pan-European collaborative research and development network.
It aims to reshape initial and ongoing music teacher education (MTE) and school music education (ME) in Europe according to the current needs of music teacher professionalization, digitization, intercultural learning, future viability, sustainability and social coherence.
TEAM plans to achieve this by developing evidence-based future-making music education OERs (sustainability, democratization, digitization) for initial and continuous MTE, by strengthening mobility for initial music teacher education with a special focus on high-quality school internships abroad with intercultural mentoring.
Mappings of ME and MTE will offer evidence and ease further collaboration in the future. The TEAM Learning Outcomes will sum up the knowledge from all TEAM findings and develop this into a useful curricular policy paper to advocate for high quality in ME/MTE in European Countries.
TEAM takes a broad approach at various points in order to tackle the current problems of the subject of music in Europe and to create a dynamic of change. It will therefore foster a music education network in Europe in the long term. A close relationship with European music associations from the very beginning guarantees that TEAM can continue to have an effect even after the project has ended.
15 partner institutions (training schools, initial and continuous MTE institutions) from 11 European countries with a high level of expertise in the necessary areas will work together flanked by a large number of Associated Partners from the 11 consortium countries as well as from 13 further European countries and music-related European NGOs.
