Eminence perspectives: Case studies of the pedagogy of creative thought and practice in music (2009–2011)
This project employs eminence studies approaches to investigate the pedagogy of creative thought and practice in music. It will identify the learning and teaching practices, dispositions, and environmental conditions of eminent composers who teach. The eminence focus shifts the inquiry lens from novice studies to tap the knowledge and expertise of leaders in a field working with experienced students. Case study investigations of eminent composers who teach will generate new knowledge concerning the pedagogy of creativity and innovation. The outcomes will impact directly music curricula and inform the development of creativity and innovation pedagogies in other domains of practice.
