Curriculum for Excellence – Learning Music and Culture

Ip Kim-ho


Recent years in Scotland, Curriculum for Excellence aims to achieve a transformation in education, focusing on needs of children and young people, and a coherent scheme from age 3 to 18. Learning connected with music and cultures is highlighted to provide innovative approaches to learning across

different areas of the curriculum.


In this talk, Dr. Ip will share his experience working with Scottish schools, to see how music plays a central role in nurturing young people to become creative individuals, responsible citizens and successful learners. He will provide case studies from schools in the UK and in Europe, including examples of projects by the team of animators led by him in iMAP, which has been funded by Creative Scotland in the past 4 years. All these will provide us the point of departure for comparing with the local needs in Hong Kong and planning for suitable learning modules for local young people.
