Marie Blain

I am the Academic Dean at Cégep Marie-Victorin, a college that offers pre-university and technical programs in various areas of study. I have a keen interest in academic development, and consider that using video in courses at the college level is an effective pedagogical approach with great potential. Convinced that online teaching can bridge the preparatory gaps faced by high school students in music theory and facilitate their admission in college and university music programs, I proposed a collaboration to Université de Montréal that led to the MOOC “Le Solfège à votre portée” [“Music Theory Made Accessible”], a free online open course. This MOOC will enable young people from all social backgrounds to access music programs.
