The potential cooperation directions with Tallinn university, Estonia, based on Kazakhstan State Program on Education Development until 2025

  1. Scientific cooperation and student exchange, specific cooperation with universities. Emphasis on innovation and cooperation with the business sector.
  2. Participation in the renewal of the state program of education development, contributing to the achievement and implementation of the objectives of the development plan.
  3. Providing a specific product or service; introduction of the pilot project including concept, coach training, teacher training; the construction of a training system, as well as the delivery of the necessary technology in the project. An example “ready-to-ship” product is modernizing the early childhood education by introducing robot integrated learning in all subject disciplines in kindergartens. The expected outcome of a one- year project are teachers’ increased digital competences and readiness to implement this innovative pedagogical approach into their teaching practices. The expected influence on student learning outcomes could be measured in the second year of the project.

Tallinn University (TLU) is the third largest university in Estonia. Its main strengths lie in the fields of humanities and social sciences, but it also has a strong and constantly growing competence in natural sciences , as well as a notable tradition of teacher training and educational research. TLU supports the sustainable development of Estonia through high quality research and study, education of intellectuals, public discussions and promotion of academic partnership.

TLU incorporates 6 schools (including School of Educational Sciences) and 1 regional college. More than 7,500 students (9.5% of them international) are enrolled in TLU’s bachelor, master and doctoral study programmes. Approximately 15,000 people also participate in further education and Open University studies each year. The university employs over 800 people, including nearly 400 researchers and lecturers.
