On 9 November 2020, the consortium implementing the international project “Enhancing Teaching Practice in Higher Education in RUSSIA and CHINA” (ENTEP) met in the online mode.

During the meeting, the participants discussed the issues of running the project in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. They decided to reschedule some face-to-face activities (planned for 2021) to the later dates and to organise several events online. In addition, the partners reviewed the results of their participation in the International symposium “Higher Education in Transition”, which was held by Instituto Politécnico de Coimbra (Portugal). They agreed to send conference papers for IPC publish a book on higher education and aftermaths of the pandemic.

The progress within the ENTEP project was briefly presented along with the intermediate outcomes and achieved results. In particular, 3 groups of teaching staff at Penza State University have undergone training within the professional development course “Enhancing teaching practices in terms of implementing the Bologna Process”. This training is organised at the Centre for Teaching and Learning Erasmus+. Currently, efforts are being made to update the working programmes of the psychological, pedagogical and methodological disciplines within several master and postgraduate programmes in line with the recommendations of European experts and with respect to the basic principles of the Bologna Process. PSU plans to continue this work in 2021.

The next online project meeting is scheduled for 18 January 2021.
