Enhancing Teaching Practice in Higher Education in RUSSIA and CHINA

Allgemeine Informationen

The Capacity Building Project „Enhancing Teaching Practice in Higher Education in Russia and China” is the Erasmus + joint project which started in October 2017.

ENTEP has been initiated with the aim of improving the quality of education and teaching, enhancing teaching practices and further developing educational science in Russia and China. Partners experienced in higher education teacher training formed a consortium of EU, Russian and Chinese higher education institutions in order to benefit from their different experiences, profiles and specific expertise and to produce relevant and high quality outcomes. The Project is focused on building cooperation and exchange of good teaching practices among European, Russian and Chinese universities, which should result in the modernization of partner country institutions.

The project contributes to the higher education reform in Russia and China through establishing a system of sustainable professional development in higher education on the basis of the best EU teaching practices and equipped with contemporary innovative teaching methodologies and pedagogical approaches with the emphasis on quality and regulation.
