Tine Grieg Viig defended her doctoral thesis

 The 7th December 2018 Tine Grieg Viig defended her doctoral thesis at the University of Bergen. The thesis is named The Dynamics of Creative Music Making: A socio-cultural perspective on learning in creative musical practices, and explores how learning is shaped and facilitated in creative musical practices. The study is designed as a multiple case-study, where interviews and video-observations have been the main source for empirical material.

The thesis consists of four articles and a synopsis. The first article is a literature-review of relevant research from the last ten years published in selected music education journals. The next three articles present results from the analysis of the study’s empirical data. The study contributes to a discussion about how to understand different forms of learning and the facilitator’s role in creative musical practices from a socio-cultural perspective.
