MiU: Music Pedagogy in Development

The research network MiU («Musikkpedagogikk i Utvikling») is concerned with music pedagogical education and research, in a broad sense. The acronym MiU stands for Music Pedagogy in Development.

The research network MiU consists of researchers in various types of music education, music teacher education and in teacher education with music as one of several subjects in Mid-Norway, from NTNU, Department of Teacher Education and Department of Music, from Queen Maud University of Early Childhood Education (QMEC) and from Nord University.

Together, MiU includes several research groups, several doctoral projects in process and many research projects at senior level. Around 60 scholars are part of the network, this includes researchers at assistant and associate professor level as well as full professors. MiU collaborates with diverse research groups at each of the four institutions.

MiU has initiated the new scholarly publication series MusPed:Research, which publishes anthologies and monographs on relevant topics for music pedagogical education and research.
