About Music Education: Most Likely to Succeed
Monday 10 April 2017
Recital Hall West
Level 1, Sydney Conservatorium of Music Sydney NSW
Rare award-winning education documentary
From Ted Dintersmith, Greg Whiteley, and Harvard’s Tony Wagner (author of The Global Achievement Gap) comes Most Likely To Succeed, a documentary that challenges the very notion of what education should be. This event is one of the first ever showings in Australia. The subject matter for this document is not American, it’s international: Tony Wagner is Expert in Residence at the Harvard Innovation Lab and Senior Research Fellow at the Learning Policy Institute.
The screening of this award winning documentary is a natural progression in our About Music Education Public Lecture Series. Last year James Humberstone, Program Leader of Music Education at the Conservatorium gave the inaugural lecture on his then just-released MOOC The Place of Learning in 21st Century Education. In this talk and many others he has given internationally, Humberstone argues that music education can lead all education in the 21st Century, because it is naturally project-based, cross-curricular and interdisciplinary.
$5 entry *this small fee goes toward recouping some of the cost of purchasing the licensing fee to show this documentary which is not available for purchase online.
