Quelle place pour la recherche dans un premier cycle d’enseignement supérieur ?

Abstract : This dissertation addresses the question of implementing research within a first cycle. Divided in two parts, the first chapter starts from Wilhelm von Humboldt’s concept of education, inspired by Pestalozzi and implemented in the University of Berlin which he created in 1809. The concept of research is then seen from the perspective of philosophers: Gaston Bachelard, John Dewey, Thomas Kuhn and Henri Bergson. The second part of that chapter addresses the question of research in the arts: examining Henri Bergson’s point of view on the artist and John Dewey’s on experience of art; presenting the insights of representatives of different disciplines of arts and researchers in music; analysing the different possible links between education and research. The figure of the reflective practitioner (Donald Schön) concludes this chapter. The second chapter addresses the question of research within the music discipline. I show what is the music discipline through examples of different types of what we can consider as research in music, in different aspects and through history of music. That leads to defining the concept of artistic research in music, which the AEC (Association Européenne des Conservatoires) reflected on, and presenting how that artistic research is implemented in the 3rd and 2nd cycles of higher education in music. This is done through the different EU qualification frameworks and the AEC learning outcomes. The exposition of case studies leads then to analysing what research can mean within a first cycle, and presenting a hypothesis for criteria to define and assess that kind of research. Within the context of an undergraduate, implementing research means educating by research. But, due to the artistic nature of this education, it is in fact setting the artists-students into research.
