Home / Member / Dr. Kaarina Marjanen
Convenor of the Practice and Research in Integrated Music Education (PRIME) SIG
Kaarina graduated for a kindergarten teacher (1980), an early childhood music teacher (1995), and a one subject music teacher (Master of Arts, 1999). She continued her studies on music education (Lic.Phil. 2005 and Ph.D. 2009). Because of her themes on the continuing studies she was expertized on musical interaction and music teacher’s professional training especially with the focus on the early childhood field. Currently Kaarina Marjanen works as a senior lecturer in Laurea UAS, Southern Finland (1.10.2014-). Her working life career includes experience in many Finnish universities, both as a lecturer and a researcher. International collaboration is important for Kaarina, with many international projects like the European Music Portfolio (www.emportfolio.eu, 2009-2012). Kaarina’s approach to musical integration derives from the understanding of learning, with it’s multimodal sense-based connections and transversal nature. The basis for integration for her is explained from the prenatal learning processes and the construction of early interaction. Kaarina is a member of SIG Prime. In ISME 2016 Kaarina will chair the Carnival of the Animals symposium. https://fi.linkedin.com/in/kaarinamarjanen www.emportfolio.eu http://www.lastenikihyva.fi/p/the-positive-equilibrium-in-english.html Kaarina’s dissertation (2009): https://jyx.jyu.fi/dspace/bitstream/handle/123456789/22602/9789513937690.pdf
