Hamk is part of Developing Pedagogy for 21ST Century Skills in Nepal (21stCSNepal) -project which aims to develop and implement further Open and Distance Learning (ODL) along with the digital pedagogy programmes, provide teachers with modern pedagogical skills including guidance and counselling, and empower local governments to design and implement local curriculum by integrating ICT skills and 21st century skills.

The project goal is to strengthen the capacity of HE to enhance equal access to education through digital learning opportunities. In order to achieve this, the development activities aim to provide students with 21st century skills. These goals also contribute to the national School Sector Development Plan (SSDP) 2016-2023 and are in accordance with Nepal’s new constitution.

The project focuses on three aspects of developing the capacities of TU and NOU to prepare quality teaching workforce equipped with digital pedagogy and 21st century skills.  Accordingly, the outputs of the project are following:

Output 1:
Newly designed Master’s programme on 21st century pedagogy focusing on digital pedagogy, guidance and counselling, and critical thinking (equivalent to 36 ECTS)

Output 2: Guidance and counselling study structure developed. The structure includes one face-to-face taught study module and a MOOC designed for teachers and teacher students to support the HRB approach and equity, and to prevent dropouts among girls and representatives of excluded communities (equivalent to two 3 ECTS courses)

Output 3: Increased capacity of TU and NOU to promote integration of ICT and 21st century skills into existing education programs of all levels of education through workshop and training for the educational personnel at the provincial and local governments.
