The OSCE Centre in Ashgabat online roundtable discussion on the exchange of best practices on integrating the use of information and communications technologies (ICT) into the teaching process started on 29 June 2020 in Ashgabat. 

The three-day roundtable discussion brings together representatives from the Border Management Institute, the Military Institute and the Institute of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Turkmenistan. The event aims to exchange experiences and best practices with the teaching staff on the design and development of E-learning courses using modern ICT.

The training course will acquaint the participants with frequently used service platforms and digital learning management systems, thereby contributing to the increase of the level of their knowledge and skills for further digitalization of the teaching process.

“In the digital age, the use of modern means of information technology, such as distance learning, electronic textbooks, and training programmes becomes an integral part of the entire teaching process at a high school,” said Natalya Drozd, Head of the OSCE Centre in Ashgabat. “In 2017, the Government of Turkmenistan adopted the Concept of the Development of the Digital Education System and the Centre has been providing support to the host country in its efforts to implement the Concept.”

The training course will present various ICT and online tools for designing learning material and conducting teaching process in the digital environment. The event will also address digital competency assessment models that are important for both students and teachers in effectively measuring the learning outcome.

The roundtable discussion is organized within the framework of the OSCE Centre’s extra-budgetary project on “Strengthening State Border Service Capacities in Turkmenistan”. In 2018 and 2019, the Centre organized a number of training events and study visits aimed at sharing best practices and experiences on the development and use of digital learning resource network and portals

The training is financially supported by the Government of Germany.
