Enhancing Teaching Quality (ETQ) in the Republic of Tatarstan
Educare has been actively engaging with the ministry and educators from the Republic of Tatarstan since 2010.
We have continued to build on this relationship and have conducted a range of projects for Tatarstan’s Ministry of Education and Sciences (MOES), including:
As a result of our success with these programmes, Educare was tasked by His Excellency the President of Tatarstan to design, develop and implement a comprehensive three-year teaching quality enhancement project.
The project aims to support Tatarstan in its holistic, long-term and sustainable educational improvement efforts as delineated in its Education Development Strategy of the Republic of Tatarstan for 2010 – 2015 “Kilecheck”. It is a multi-faceted, multi-tiered and differentiated project to meet the needs of educators across the continuum of experience and diversity of portfolios, expertise and competencies.
We continue to work with MOES to develop and implement these programmes.
PD Online is a collaborative learning and assessment portal to facilitate self-paced learning where teachers can learn independently, track their own progression and interact with other teachers in course-specific forums. This has allowed the teachers to evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching methodologies and share corresponding interventions.
