ALL ABOUT VIETMUS
VIETnam Music Universities Spurring (VIETMUS) is a project co-funded by the European Union and coordinated by
Conservatorio di Musica Alessandro Scarlatti di Palermo
AT A GLANCE.
VIETMUS will aim at promoting digital transformation and at creating a new digital capacity in teaching and performing in Vietnamese Higher Music Education (HME) landscape.
It will do so by:
encouraging an easy and constant access to IT-based new practices
creating a more sustainable and inclusive teaching system
coping with the needs and challenges emerged by the Covid outbreak
fostering employability capacity in HME institutions' graduates
VIETMUS will contribute to strengthen key competencies, in particular innovative transdisciplinary skills able to connect music, performance, business, internationalisation, social impact and technology. HME institutions will rethink their skills and teaching models in line with The Future of ICT for Creativity and Creative Industries model (European Commission, 2021) in the acknowledgment that digital tools have become almost the only means for artists to connect, perform, learn and, more and more, sustain themselves.
The low digital competencies attitude of Vietnam’s students, teachers and HME institutions (Vietnam embraces digital transformation, online teaching in education sector, www.vietnamnet.vn 2021) will be fostered, updating the didactic offer, and designing and testing a specific course module (Measuring the levels of 21stcentury digital skills among professionals working within the creative industries, Laar 2020, 2030 Digital Compass strategy).
Lastly, the project will aim at strengthening sustainable future entrepreneurship opportunities throughout digital capacities, giving music graduates new employment possibilities in the Creative Industries chain (Industry structure: transforming value chains and changing business models, OECD 2005).
