Popis projektu / Description of the project:

The proposed project strictly follows the initiative and recommendations of the European Union’s High-Level Group on the Modernization of Higher Education (HLG) and consistently apply them in the modernization of teaching and learning in the field of natural and mathematical sciences at six higher education institutions in Serbia and Albania. In view of HLG’s recommendations, special attention is paid to pedagogical and methodological aspects of the use of ICT in teaching and learning, as well as to training in the use of new educational technologies. To stimulate internationalization, we are, also, planned to organise the training of teachers for teaching and academic writing in English. Along with all these forms of training we will work on raising awareness about the necessity of modernizing teaching and learning through the integration of new technologies and relevant pedagogy. In order to demonstrate the benefits it brings both to teachers and students several pilot projects for the integration of online technologies and pedagogies within courses are planned to be launched, with special emphasis on their integration into laboratory classes. At our institutions we will also launch an initiative to develop and implement strategies for the support and on-going improvement of the quality of teaching and learning, especially for the adoption of new modes of learning and teaching.

Cíle projektu / Objectives of the project:

The main objective is improvement of the quality of higher education in the field of natural and mathematical sciences at higher education institutions in Serbia and Albania in line with advance EU practices, thereby enhancing their comparability and competitiveness in Europe and beyond. This wider aim will be achieved through completion of the set of specific objectives concerned with the areas where the measures should be applied:

  • to enhance professional competences and skills of teaching staff through training courses in contemporary pedagogical approaches, methodologies and educational technologies;
  • to upgrade educational infrastructure as a basis for wider integration of modern pedagogical principles and technologies in teaching and learning;
  • to deliver new/modified courses in psychology, pedagogy, methodology of teaching, and technology enhanced learning at the PC HEIs in line with the modern European strategies;
  • to strengthen personnel infrastructure through the introduction of continuous professional development in the system of higher education.
