Chen Gang, the associated dean of music collage of Nanjing Normal University, and MARIANNE LØKKE JAKOBSEN, the head of International Affairs of the Royal Danish Academy of Music had a meeting in the conference room in our music collage, centering on the co-culture and cooperative education projects.
First of all, the deputy dean Chen Gang extended a warm welcome to Ms. Mariana. Then, he briefly introduced the current situation of music education in our college, and emphatically introduced the culture orientation, educational objectives, major setup and the curriculum provision. Ms. Mariana not only introduced the policy of the royal Danish academy of music on education for international students, but the general outlines of Music Confucius Institute as well.
Subsequently, the two sides have conducted in-depth discussions on the practical promotion of bilateral cooperation in running schools for overseas study and other projects. Chen Gang said that from the university level, Nanjing Normal University is currently actively exploring the Chinese and foreign cooperation projects and education abroad programs. Now, each college has been participated in promoting cooperation in Chinese-foreign cooperation in running schools, so as to establish a long-term contact with foreign universities, to broaden the channels of teachers and students to go abroad for further study. From the perspective of the college, our college has also participated in the joint training program of undergraduate 1+2+1, and is willing to establish a long-term cooperation mechanism with top international universities to promote win-win cooperation and mutual development.
Mariana said that the RDAM welcomes overseas students to study. At the same time, the RDAM has set up specialized department, which is responsible for receiving and delivery overseas students and teachers, in order to build a strong international cooperation mechanism. For this joint education, an agreement needs to be achieved. We need to take into consideration the advantages of two sides，making plans in terms of curriculum provision and teaching contents. Deeply in approval of this idea, the associate Dean Wang Gang said that the
communication can start from the aspects of musicology, piano, vocal, and composition, considering the commonality in these field and that we welcome Danish teachers and students to pursue their study in NNU as the major of China Musical Historiography is currently in the exploration of internationalization. This conference, a basis for future cooperation and communication, is a giant step for the musical institute of NNU in the pursuit for international influence and is a positive response to the “double first” goal of our university.
