Research Fellow Elaine Sandoval co-publishes digital OER textbook Open Music Commons
December 20, 2022
Elaine is pleased to announce the publication of Open Music Commons - a digital Open Educational Resource (OER) featuring nine multimedia essays based on fieldwork research by PhD candidates and recent alumni of the CUNY Graduate Center’s doctoral program in ethnomusicology, edited by Natalie Oshukany and Elaine Sandoval. Please enjoy it here.
This resource was created with a few aims in mind:
- To produce a high-quality digital OER in ethnomusicology (all contributions went through double-blind peer review process);
- To offer an accessible platform through which our colleagues could share their original ethnographic research — including some outstanding audio-visual materials — with a wide community of students, learners, and researchers; and
- To actualize a free and open pedagogical resource for teachers of undergraduate courses on music and sound practices.
Contributors include: Brian E. Bond; Agustina Checa; Carlos Cuestas; Miranda Fedock; Bradford Garvey; Brendan Kibbee; George Mürer; Elaine Sandoval; and Elise Steenburgh. Elaine's chapter is entitled "Learning Música Llanera in Venezuela."
