Peer-reviewers Training Session 2019

The MusiQuE Board and staff are looking forward to welcoming you to the next Peer-reviewers Training Session, on 6-7 November 2019!

The training is meant for representatives of higher music education institutions, for representatives of the profession and for students. Interested individuals who meet the requirements and who are willing to act as a reviewer in MusiQuE review procedures are highly encouraged to register for the training.

Practical details

Date: from Wednesday 6th November 2019 at 16:00 (including dinner) to Thursday 7th November 2019 at 13:00.
Venue: Conservatorio di Musica “G. Verdi„ Torino, Italy.


The training session will start with a general introduction to MusiQuE, its structure, its review procedures as well as the role of MusiQuE peer-reviewers.

This introduction will be followed by a session on Experiences and Practices, in which participants will be able to learn from each other and discuss both the challenges experienced by review team members and the lessons learned (primarily as peer-reviewer but also as institutional representatives).  
At the end of the first day of the training, participants will prepare the role-play exercises (scheduled on day 2).

On the second day, the training will continue with a Role-play session 'acting as a peer-reviewer', in which participants undertake a meeting during a mock institutional site-visit, assuming the role of either member of a review team or staff from within the institution being reviewed.
Consecutively, participants are asked during the 'Working as part of a team' session to discuss questions posed by the session leaders in small groups in order to experience how to develop into a good team in a very short period of time.

The training will end with a plenary session including a presentation of the MusiQuE Board, an opportunity to offer feedback on the training and an update about MusiQuE’s ongoing and upcoming review activities.

All sessions will be delivered in English by MusiQuE Board and staff members and experienced MusiQuE reviewers. An outline of the training is available here.

Preparatory work
Please note that participants will be asked to prepare for the training by reading and analysing a set of materials submitted in advance.

[For participants who attended the Training in 2018: please note that the exercise will be based on the same self-evaluation report which you received last year.]
