Delhi government-run Delhi Teachers’ University (DTU) on Tuesday signed a three-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a US-based nonprofit public policy think tank for enhancing the professional development of educators.
The Delhi government aims to empower teachers with the latest research insights and equip them with the necessary skills, Education Minister Atishi said.
RAND Corporation is recognized as one of the top three education think tanks globally, it said.
The umbrella MoU marks a first-of-its-kind collaboration that aims to leverage DTU’s infrastructure along with RAND’s expertise in conducting rigorous, high-quality research to support teacher training and capacity building for teachers and undertake future research activities to understand the state of teachers and the teaching profession in Delhi, the education department noted.
The Education Minister added that it is the vision of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal that Delhi’s government-run education institutions become the best not only in India but also across the world.
She said the signing of this MoU represents a promising milestone in Delhi's education sector, with both institutions committed to driving positive change and propelling the development of effective policies and practices in education.
Under the MoU, this collaboration is non-legal and non-financial, the government informed.
The MoU also envisions enhancing teaching and research skills through training and engaging in joint scholarly discussions on significant public policy matters.
The MoU was signed by DTU Vice-Chancellor Dhananjay Joshi and Dossani in the presence of the Education Minister.
