Developing cost-effective and sustainable network and technical infrastructures in Georgia

The main partners, Georgian Technical University (GTU) and Iowa State University (ISU), are charged to design and implement an expandable network to: 1) create a community of professional practice centered on community colleges in both countries; and 2) assist Georgian teachers to develop and deliver electronic learning materials needed in that nation’s new community colleges and vocational education centers. This network will also be used by college outreach staff, academic organizational units and community stakeholders that are members of the regional network of community colleges and vocational education centers being established jointly with the Ministry of Education & Science, US Agency for International Development (USAID), and member colleges of Community Colleges for International Development, Inc.

Educating Georgian Community College Students in Engineering & Technical Subjects

This proposal responds to the technology gap facing higher education in the Republic of Georgia. The solution which Georgian Technical University (GTU) and Iowa State University (ISU) suggest in this proposal is to 1)create a CD library of electronic course materials that students in Georgia’s new community colleges and vocational education centers can use in their local campus computer center and/or play using a computer in an internet cafe, at work, or at home; 2)produce and disseminate lectures, seminars, on-the-job situations, and lab experiences to be used as “virtual” labs and “virtual” internship experiences; and 3)develop competencies so that Georgian teachers can add to this digital archive after the grant ends. We are asking EIF for $20,600 for these purposes to complement and extend the financial support and in-kind activities we are receiving from USAID, the Ministry of Education and Science, and the American higher education partners (see summary of funders in appendix materials).
