The coordinator of the project FOSTERC is a representative of Polytechnic University of Valencia, and the experts from the University of Turku, Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences and the University of Bialystok visited Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno to discuss the implementation of the Bologna process in the Republic of Belarus. The representatives of the project note that its goal is, first of all, to orient the Belarusian education system to a student. It is necessary to turn to modern methods of developing educational programs based on the competence approach, which is aimed at the practical component of the content of education, the independent work of students and getting necessary professional competences. This approach in education involves creating new teaching methods and testing its effectiveness.
