3.4. TRAINING FOR TEACHING AND ACADEMIC WRITING IN ENGLISH

Outcome

Teaching staff perfected in English

Description

Within this activity training courses for teaching and
academic writing in English at the PC HEIs will be performed.
Increasing the capability of teachers to teach well in English
is very significant for the internationalisation of the PC HEIs,
since it creates a better chance of these HEIs to be
successfully involved in the mobility program for students
and teachers. Better language proficiency also facilitates
communication and work with modern technologies, and
enables writing quality educational and scientific texts,
presentations, reports etc. Based on the teaching and
learning material prepared within the activity 2.4 training
courses will be organised, with trainers who are lecturers of
English at the corresponding PC HEIs. Teachers who have
perfected their teaching skills in this way would have a
motivation (financial, travels) to offer their
undergraduate and PhD courses in English in the field of
natural and computer sciences and mathematics, for
foreign students. During the realisation of the project a few
departments at the PC HEIs will offer the whole study
programmes approved/accredited in English. This would be
the first step towards obtaining international accreditation
when financial conditions in PC countries allow that. This is
one, important long-term impact of our project.
