Global Conservatoire aims to develop online, asynchronous teaching specially suited for conservatory education. By the end of the second project year, Global Conservatoire will have developed and offered a roster of 16 courses, accompanied by an in-depth research project to evaluate the specific strengths and challenges of online, asynchronous teaching at conservatory level.

The next transnational meeting will be hosted in April 2023 by mdw – University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna. At the same time, a teacher training course will also be held, giving existing and upcoming Global Conservatoire faculty and opportunity to hone their skills and competencies in online teaching for conservatories.
