The Team of Al-Farabi KazNU received guests - participants of the ENTER consortium – from Portugal (Instituto Politecnico Do Porto), Estonia (Tallinn University Of Technology), Slovakia (Dubnicky Technologicky Institut V Dubnicki Nad Vahom), Russian Federation (National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University, Kazan National Research Technological University, Tambov State Technical University, Don State Technical University, Association For Engineering Education Of Russia, Vyatka State University, Agency Of Educational Strategies And Initiatives Bologna Club) and Kazakhstan (Academician E.

The project starts at 2018 and will last until 2021. ENTER aims at creating a novel multicultural and international approach for formal post-graduate professional and pedagogical education for engineering educators. Furthermore, it is focused on low cost and convenience, thus strongly based on e-learning technologies, whenever feasible, and designed with the objective of being internationally recognized and accredited. The actual design is to one of the outputs of the project, but we foresee 3 educational programs with different content and duration (names are tentative): - iPET-1 Short-focused (e.g. 2 ECTS) – “Qualification Development” Certificate; - iPET-2 Professional Retraining (e.g. 8 ECTS) – Diploma ‘’Higher Education Teacher”; - iPET-3 International recognized (e.g. 20 ECTS) – a full programme leading to international accreditation as “Engineering Educator”.  The Al-Farabi KazNU team represented by leader of project Burkitbayev M.M., physical-technical faculty representatives: Nurgaliyeva K. – coordinator, Davletov A., Turekhanova K., Batryshev D. – team members and Balginbayeva Z. from Institute for Professional Development   and Tanassoglo Y. from Department for international affairs  More information you can find at the project site:
