CDIO standard and methodology successfully introducedSociety
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. Advisor to the Minister of Education, Culture, Science and Sports J.Khatanbaatar received Senior Director of Programmes and Partnership at Temasek Foundation of Singapore Stanley Lee on October 30.
At the start of the meeting, Advisor J.Khatanbaatar thanked the Temasek Foundation for giving support in introducing CDIO methodology in colleges and universities of Mongolia, and expressed his interest in further partnership in improving the programme quality and standards even more.
“Although the outcome-based education - CDIO programme is implemented in some countries of Asia, the programme has been able to be implemented more successfully in Mongolia. I consider that this was due to the policy support from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Sports,” said Mr. Stanley Lee.
In the framework of the higher education reform, the Ministry introduced ‘Outcome-based education CDIO standard and methodology’ in five programmes of Mongolian University of Science and Technology, Mongolian University of Life Sciences, and National University of Mongolia since 2015, and has recently completed the introduction of advanced CDIO methodology in six state-owned universities. A series of methodology workshops have also been organized at the universities by CDIO experts in order to prepare master trainers and renew programmes.
The sides highlighted that the increase in participation and interest in learning in students involved in the CDIO programme alongside opportunities for practicum and improvement in their achievements are the results of the methodology.
