Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: Sep 30, 2016
The Conservatory Niccolò Paganini was founded in 1830 and since 1967 has passed on its management to the state as a focal point of Higher Education in Art and Music (AFAM sector). Over the last 15 years it has consolidated collaborations between artistic and educational research between Italian and foreign institutions.
The Institute obtained the ECHE card in 2007 and participates in the Erasmus + program because of the essential necessity to create, nourish and foster awareness of its activities abroad, to further promote academic exchanges and collaboration within wider European academia and to encourage the professional development of its students and teachers abroad. The conservatory also participates in the Consortium Working With Music, a project launched in 2010 to provide opportunity for young musicians to develop through professional training in Europe.
The Paganini Conservatory aims to undertake within Erasmus framework the following:
- For students to strengthen their language skills, to support the learning experiences in other European countries and offer opportunities to enter the world of work;
- For teachers to promote new opportunities for professional growth through comparison with other reality and methods of teaching.
Erasmus mobility activities presently concern two outgoing students; one for traineeship and one for exchange study; three outgoing teachers and two incoming. All students have had the opportunity to attend lectures and seminars held by foreign guest teachers, in which participation has also been extended to external students.
Overall the experiences were shared and advertised with students and faculty through the website. Further information was also shared in articles written int the "Il Cantiere Musicale" newspaper published by the Conservatory.
The outgoing mobility, both for students and for teachers, were organized in a transparent manner and on the basis of competitive criteria in the public call.
The incoming mobility have been submitted to the related department to assess the consistency of the proposed activities with the Institute's study programs.
The Institute has consolidated and increased the number of interinstitutional agreements and enhanced its contact with other European institutions. This has encouraged the study of foreign languages of the institutional partners, participation in related proposed activities and the approach to new teaching methodologies.
We notice a general enhanced interest in outgoing mobility activities and thus is increasing the number of requests.
