Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to investigate student team-based possibilities for expanding the range of delivery modes for internship programmes within a popular music degree. A case study of the collaborative approach used in an arts entrepreneurship and management internship programme at Macquarie University (MQ) is provided in addition to pre- and post-programme experience interview data featuring the perspectives of some of the students and staff involved. This exercise in self-reflection concerning the pedagogical approach we have taken at MQ will explore the research question: What is the nature of student team-based internships in terms of collaborative creativity? Through an engagement with the literature pertaining to higher popular music education (HPME), arts entrepreneurship curricula in higher education and group creativity, we examine our case study data in order to explore the possibilities for building teams of student interns in our popular music programme.
