|November 20, 2009|
Ilia Chavchavadze State University and USAID Education Management Project celebrated the launching of a new two-year Master’s of Education Administration Program at ICU.
According to the USAID Education Program this new master’s program will equip future education leaders with management skills necessary to improve administration at their schools and universities. Program graduates would be advanced by acquiring knowledge in research and analysis of educational and social issues.
The program courses cover areas, such as education leadership, strategic and school operations management, finances, personnel practices, facilities management and safety, education systems instructional and curriculum leadership, curriculum design, standards and accreditation, school-to-community relations the politics of education and public-private partnership.
This western standard-level program will be led by Georgian professors with the guidance support, and practice classes conducted by UCLA professors and academic experts. The curriculum is developed in accordance with Bologna Process requirements, and invests in theoretical courses as well as in practical field experience.
Georgia Today exclusively contacted Consulting and Training Center education expert Pavle Tvaliashvili. According to him this project is very “timely” and covers the needs of the Georgian education system.
“The directors of the schools are self educated managers. Manager is different from professional education. In this case there will be a team that will be able to educate managers and later educated managers will lead the education process more successfully,” Tvaliashvili said.
Tvaliashvili also added that sharing foreign experience in the Georgian education system is important for the development of this field.
