European Music Portfolio – Maths: Sounding ways into Mathematics

…makes innovative solutions accessible for teachers in Europe.

It develops innovative and creative approaches to make the learning of mathematics (and music) more interesting, inquiry-based and engaging. This approach can have particular benefits for low achievers and students at risk.

The project aims to enhance the quality and European dimension of in-service and initial teacher training courses by introducing a tested training curriculum dealing with interdisciplinary approaches to the teaching and learning of both mathematics and music.

The project was finalized in 2017. For further collaboration please contact directly the partners listet. From Switzerland and UK we are not able to start new Erasmus+Projects – but we can participate as associated countries and we would be very pleased to support next steps foreward to a more integrated education. 

Inspired by the work on EMP-Languages and EMP-Maths and in collaboration with 18 autors we are happy to present teh following publication:

Integrated Music Education - Challenges of Teaching and Teacher Training
Markus Cslovjecsek, Madeleine Zulauf (eds.) 

Peter Lang Publishers, Bern, Berlin, Bruxelles, New York, Oxford, Warszawa, Wien, 2018

    In the last months the EU Commission produced a short promotional video out of material they’ve got from the Swiss TV and mixed up the material from several projects to a funny (fake) production. I’m not just happy with it, but there was no way to influence the production from the moment they’ve had the material. 

    Here is the link:

    Thanks for keeping disseminating it and sharing with your collaborators. Of course the video can help to promote the discussion on next projects and involving experts from different fields.
