On the frame of the Erasmus Plus Capacity Building For Higher Education, ‘Innovative Teaching Education in Mathematics’ – iTEM, we travelled to the Czech Technical University, Prague, Czech Republic, to participate in the 1st iTEM Progress Meeting.

The latter had a duration of two days (from the 17th of June 2019 until/and the 18th of June 2019).

During the meeting are presented and discussed:

Work-Package One: Preparation (I)–Presentations from the Assigned Tasks Coordinators. Preparation (II)- From.

Presentations from the Assigned Tasks Coordinators. Closing Discussions – Conclusions.

Work–Package Two: Development (Presentations order has been send as an email).

Work–Package Three: Quality Plan & Actions.

Work-Package Four: Dissemination & Exploitation Plan.

Work - Package Five: Management.

Decision of the Next Meeting & Evaluation of the meeting.

Participants from all the partner Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) participated in this two day progress meeting that hosted by the Biomedical Engineering Group of the CVUT in Prague, Czech Republic.

The event took place from the 18th of June and its proceedings completed by the 19th of June 2019.

The main objectives of this progress meeting were the following:

1.To review and report the progress of the assignments have been distributed to the partners after the kick off meeting in Crete (14th and 15th of February 2019)

2.To report the progress of the deliverables of all the work packages for the 1st six months of the project

3.To plan the actions for the next six months with special attention & priority on the following:

a.The introduction of the examples from real life problems & other scientific topics into the curricula of Linear Algebra I and Calculus I. Four examples should be introduced by partner (advisory and test Institutions)

b.The preparation of the four test Institutions (National University of Uzbekistan, Hadassah College, University of Mitrovica and Universum College) to start the 1st Pilot Phase with the start of the Semester (September or October depending on the Institution). The preparation mainly involves the engagement of

(a) the examples through teaching;

(b) the frequent testing & evaluation as a monitoring and better math understanding tool;

(c) the use of Moodle as platform to upload the training material and also use its widgets to be able to monitor students that are on risk to fall back

c.The agreement of the dates of the next Training & Progress Meeting event in Copenhagen and the Monitoring Visits in the Test Institutions.
