This session will present a curriculum mapping of Australian undergraduate music technology courses to highlight trends and gaps in curriculum design as aligned to the Australian Qualifications Framework. It will then discuss ways the University of Queensland has rethought its curriculum to respond to the changing skill requirements and industry contexts classical music graduates are facing. This new curriculum is highly practical, and focused on developing skills in collaboration, improvisation, performance and composition using available technologies including laptops, mobile devices and social media platforms. In particular, the program is utilizing Ableton Live, Push 2 and Link-enabled mobile apps in the creation of new performance ensembles and as the focus of creative-music making laboratory classes. This pedagogical approach is being evaluated through a series of pilot studies for its effectiveness and transferability to other practice-centred disciplines within the Australian tertiary sector. The initial results and a showcase of student work will be presented for discussion at IMPACT.
