A milestone for research based understandings of life’s musical journey: The 50th anniversary of the ISME Research Commission. Informing the teaching and learning of life’s journey through music
Say hello to Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The ISME Commission on Research in Music Education Pre-Conference Seminar is being held from 8-13 July 2018 at the Canadian University Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai is the largest and most populous city in the UAE, a global city and business hub of the Middle East. It is renowned for its iconic construction projects which are some of the largest undertaken in the modern age, such as the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa (pictured). It is one of the most visited cities in the world and its westernised economy attracts expatriates and shoppers alike. In the past two decades, there have been a number of man-made islands created to house residents and tourists.
The Canadian University Dubai is located in the heart of downtown Dubai. The University is committed to providing a range of opportunities in education, research and professional development.
The ISME Research Commission has sought to a) examine through research important issues facing music education worldwide; b) develop, refine and demonstrate a range of research approaches, methods and techniques for critically examining issues in music education; c) provide a forum for the communication, critical analysis, and dissemination of research innovations in music education; and d) deepen and develop the research knowledge base for practitioners, policy makers, and researchers in music education. In Dubai we will celebrate 50 years of these endeavors at the 27th ISME Research Commission Pre-Conference Seminar with research presentations, discussions, and a look back on our history in an effort to deepen and develop the research knowledge base of music education.
