Through J-WEL membership, the Mongolian University of Science and Technology joins a community of 33 other schools, universities, non-profits, government agencies and companies addressing the world's most pressing education challenges and exploring opportunities presented by new educational technologies, effective practices, and emerging scientific understandings of learning. Other members of the Higher Education Collaborative include Mexico's Universidad Iberoamericana, Universidad Tecnológica del Uruguay, and South Korea's Kangwon National University.
MUST representatives recently attended a membership signing ceremony at MIT. Professor Badarch Dendev, the Chairman of the MUST Governing Board, commented on the engagement:
"In a time when the Mongolian University of Science and Technology is formulating its vision for the next 60 years, an engagement with a world-leading technological university and its innovative J-WEL community opens the door to premium engineering education as well as digital and open learning which will undoubtedly have a great impact in nurturing a world-class university in the land of Great Mongols."
"With MIT's expertise in open learning practices and engineering education, we look forward to collaborating with the Mongolian University of Science and Technology to realize its vision for the 21st century," observed Julia Reynolds-Cué
MUST will send a delegation to the Higher Education track for the March 2020 J-WEL Week, which will focus on curriculum design.
