Type:

Grant

Alternative title:

MATHGEAR

Description:

Mathematics constitutes a main scientific fundamental of all Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) curricula and, if so, the quality of Math education is one of the important elements of technological modernization and economic reforms. Another conceptual pillar of the proposed project is that despite a well-known conservatism of math education, the application of new educational technologies can radically improve the quality of learning outcomes, stimulate students’ motivation and creativity, thus improving the quality of STEM education as a whole. Therefore, the overall objective of the project is to improve the quality of STEM education in South Caucasian region by modernizing and improving the curricula in the field of Mathematics. The process of modernization will start from the fundamental revision of the way math studies are organized in all Georgian and Armenian universities offering degrees in STEM. After ensuring the consistency of the math curricula with the Bologna principles and best European standards, the further steps will be taken to modernize the content and teaching methods by introducing principles of blended learning and new educational technologies. The major project outcomes will comprise the following: – Comparative Case Studies bringing together best European and national practices in teaching Math within STEM curricula. – Modernized Math component of 12 selected STEM curricula. The modernization will converge the teaching plans and practices in Georgia and Armenia with the European standards, thus ensuring transferability of learning results and introducing best European educational technologies for mathematics. – Localized Math-Bridge – the world’s largest online platform for mathematics enabling various pedagogical strategies and learning scenarios, including remedial courses and preparation for study periods abroad. New capacity of Universities to develop and deliver modern math courses.
