Educational research within the arts, practice-based and relevant to society
Research in education and educational sciences in music, theatre and dance at the Academy of Music and Drama include teaching, influencing, fostering and socialising in different types of learning methods, both formal and informal. The research has an interdisciplinary character and is focused on problems relevant for society. This includes research on gender systems and knowledge regimes within higher education in the arts, research on control, social justice and equality in schools and arts and music schools, and subject matter education with a focus on subject conception, expertise and assessment in schools and teacher education. The research is practice-based and often ethnographically inspired, where field notes, observations, interviews and focus group discussions are common methods for achieving interesting research results.
