Introducing: The E-XCHANGE!

At the Herman Brood Academie we’ve had the pleasure of co-creating a few valuable international exchange projects over the past years. Projects that have brought together music and business students from colleges and universities located in Sweden, the UK, America, Scotland, Ireland, Germany and the Netherlands.

With COVID forcing us to stay indoors and teach online, those projects abroad have come to a grinding halt. Along with it, the disappearing of the enormously valuable life experience and international network expansion a student gains during such a project.

COVID however, has also taught us that there is tremendous value in online classes. First and foremost being able to connect and exchange regardless of distance. Secondly: finding out that being in the physical classroom wasn’t the only effective way of learning. In fact, we have experienced that in some cases classes proved to be more effective online, rather than offline. 

While we are rebooting our joined-effort projects abroad, we are simultaneously jumping on the opportunity of adding online classes to the mix of gaining international experience and network expansion. 

  • Wouldn’t it be amazing if students were able to join a few masterclasses online every semester, hosted by varying international schooling institutes? 

  • And how easy and inspiring would job shadowing/lesson observation be if we as teachers could just ‘sit in’ on a class from an international colleague located 1500km away?

  • Moreover, as a schooling institute you will be investing 3-4 hours per school year to host one of the webinars, but your students get to access approx. 30 hours of webinars.

Stuff that dreams are made of right? 

So here we are. Doing a trial run of what could be another valuable and inspiring joined-effort international exchange project. Students and teachers from the affiliated institutes can now sign up for the first session on Feb-8th 2023.
