Doctoral project

Jääskeläinen, Tuula: Researching students’ experiences in workload in developing pedagogical equality and equity in the Bachelor of Music studies

This study discusses students’ experiences in workload connected with pedagogical equality and equity in the Bachelor of Music studies in the Sibelius Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki.

The aim of the first and second articles is to develop a theoretical framework for the study by demonstrating the possibilities and also complexity of definitions of workload in learning and how workload in learning is connected to pedagogical equality and equity in higher music education. The aim of the third article is to build a foundation for research-based evaluation of workload in higher music education. This foundation will be used in developing a ‘Students’ workload as an equity factor’ questionnaire. In the fourth article this questionnaire is tested and refined by collecting and analysing empirical data of students’ experiences in workload in learning in the Bachelor of Music studies in the Sibelius Academy.

The aim of this dissertation is to enhance knowledge of students’ workload in higher music education by considering pedagogical equality and equity as crucial factors in learning and teaching. This may have implications both for educational policy and also for practical changes in teaching, learning and well-being.
