In response to the National Review of School Music Education, a team of academics from across Australia devised a project aimed at bridging the gaps between research, teaching and academic development through institutions engaged in music teacher education. With funding from the Carrick Institute and using problem-based learning as the tool, pre-service teachers were invited to participate in practical teaching environments through case studies uploaded to a central website. As an adjunct aim, it was anticipated that the project would decrease academic isolation between academics, teachers and pre-service teachers.
