On January 24, at GTU International Relations and Standards Office was conducted the first official working meeting about organization of internal Teacher Training (TT) courses at GTU within Erasmus+ project PRINTeL.
According to the activities defined within the PRINTeL project, in order to increase the quality of academic teaching, it’s planned to maintain professional development opportunities for GTU academic personnel in spring, 2019 (February-March) in order to provide them with an opportunity to master the innovative techniques of teaching and learning, which in turn will facilitate further improvement of the learning outcomes at Georgian Technical University.
The meeting was attended by GTU Professors and teachers, who successfully passed the competition within the PRINTeL project and in November-December, 2018, participated in 5-day training course of Training of Trainers (TOT) offered by PRINTeL project European partners and undertook appropriate training in Graz, Leuven, Porto, Linkopings and Barcelona Universities.
