Amélioration de la formation des enseignants en service au Pérou

Pérou, 2013–2015

Ce projet eut pour objectif de contribuer à l’amélioration du système de formation des enseignants en service dans l’éducation supérieure péruvienne. Le programme se centra sur le renforcement des capacités pédagogiques et les pratiques des universités partenaires.

Les résultats du projet visèrent de même la promotion du développement démocratique, social et économique du Pérou ainsi que la promotion progressive de ces éléments dans le reste de l’Amérique Latine.

Dans la pratique, l’Université de Helsinki forma les formateurs d’enseignants des universités du Réseau Péruvien d’Universités (RPU) qui ont participé dans le projet. Une fois formés, ces formateurs d’enseignants ont appliqué leurs nouvelles connaissances pour former à leur tour des tuteurs pédagogiques locaux. A travers des tuteurs pédagogiques, les professeurs d’écoles locales ont pu bénéficier également du projet universitaire. En tout, 60 enseignants universitaires ainsi que presque de 200 tuteurs-professeurs ont participé dans le programme.

Le projet fut conçu et exécuté en accord avec les directives nationales du gouvernement péruvien ainsi qu’avec leurs objectifs stratégiques en matière d’éducation. (Logros de Aprendizaje de los Estudiantes en Educación Básica Regular, PELA 2013-2016, et, Metas Educativas e Indicadores al 2021).
