The Grieg Academy Music Education research group (GAME) was created in 2015 as a collaboration between music education researchers at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (formerly Bergen University College) and the University of Bergen for the purpose of establishing and promoting new research projects in the field of music education. GAME will work for: • Development of new knowledge that stimulates critical reflection on pedagogical and learning practices in music education • Development of, and recruitment toward, postgraduate music education studies on the Master and PhD-levels. • Active conference participation and presentations of GAME-related research projects, in local, national, and international settings. • Expanding contact and collaboration with other research environments and individual scholars in Norway and abroad. • Planning and implementation of events in Bergen for knowledge sharing across the music teaching profession. GAME is currently led by Professor David Hebert.
