Her doctoral dissertation on

Eleni participated as senior team member and academic coordinator for the music education interventions in the research program “Active Inclusion of Roma Children of Central, Eastern, Western Macedonia and Thrace in the Educational System” funded by the European Union and the National Strategic Reference Framework.
On the blog CR.E.A.M. (Creative Encounters with Art and Music) and the Vimeo Channel CR.E.A.M. one can find a showcase of music and visual art students' projects that reflect the aims of her course "Music Creativity--Psychology of Education" that is attended by both music and visual arts students of the Faculty of Arts, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. One of the key challenges of Eleni' s course is to enable music students to “mess up” with the ‘picture’ and visual art students to “mess up” with ‘sound’ in order to expand their creativity beyond the roles and specializations that the university and society assigns to it.
The DVD "Students Teaching Students" documents a sample of innovative teaching demonstrations at Greek and Cypriot economically, educationally, and culturally disadvantaged schools by senior music students enrolled in Prof. Lapidaki's course"Music Education," which encompasses C.A.L.M. in the core of its syllabus.
During her sabbaticals Eleni taught as an invited professor at the School of Education, University of Cyprus (Spring Semester 2000/2001) and at the Musicology Department, University of Amsterdam (Spring Semesters 2003/2004, 2009/2010, and 2011/2012).
