The work of the project is divided into four work packages (WP).

WP1 Training Material Design

WP2 Test and evaluation

WP2.1 Evaluation strategies design

With the support of the QMUL Learning Institute workshop questionnaires will be developed based on their prior experience from other projects in order to evaluate the effectiveness of training material and their delivery. The feedback obtained will be used to inform future activities.

WP2.2 Feedback collection and analysis - online material

The online material will be released as early as possible during the project. Continuous online evaluation will be used to collect feedback and make the appropriate changes.

WP2.3 Feedback collection and analysis - research staff material

The workshop material will be tested at various institutions across the UK, and at the ISMIR 2012 conference, where questionnaires will be handed out at the end of each session.

WP2.4 Feedback collection and analysis - postgraduate course material

Feedback for the postgraduate course material will be collected through the standard course evaluation procedures in place at QMUL.

WP2 Deliverables

  • D2.1 Questionnaires for evaluating training material (all types).
  • D2.2 Summary of the collected feedback for the online material and recommendations for improvement.
  • D2.3 Summary of the collected feedback for the research staff material and recommendations for improvement.
  • D2.4 Summary of the collected feedback for the postgraduate course material and recommendations for improvement.

WP3 Embedding

This work package will be carried out to organise the various workshops, courses and seminars in collaboration with the partners.

WP3 Deliverables

  • D3.1 Final report on embedding.

WP4 Communication and Management

WP4.1 Project management

The project will be managed on a day-to-day basis by the PI, with project meetings held weekly to assess progress and problems. This has been our practice throughout the Sound Software project and previous JISC-funded projects. The CIs will participate in the management process to ensure compatibility and continuity with the requirements of the Sound Software project from a management and technical perspective respectively.

WP4.2 Dissemination

The project results will be disseminated through blog posts, Twitter, and official reports on the project's website. Results will also be presented at discipline-specific conferences (ISMIR, DAFx), and to other similar UK-based research institutions via the partnership with the Sound Software project.

WP4 Deliverables

  • D4.1 Project site and feed.
  • D4.2 Final report and publication of the material in the Jorum repository.
