Book CoverDr. David Akombo, associate professor of music education and faculty fellow in the College of Liberal Arts, has recently published a new book “Research, technology and best practices in education.” This volume was co-edited with Dr. Santiago Pérez Aldeguer of The University of Zaragoza, Spain.

“I consider globalization as the most widespread trend in arts education in the twenty-first century because it presents implications for curriculum innovation,” said Dr. Akombo. “This text comprises well-documented research by scholars from around the world and who examine at education in the prisms of cultural arts and technology.”

The book is also a multilingual volume translated into three languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese) and is composed of 15 chapters covering topics such as innovative practices in arts education, application of different technologies in the learning processes, research on sustainable development and environmental care. The book was published by Adaya Press in The Netherlands.
