The Education Development Working Group gathered in Belgrade, Serbia, April 6 to 11 for its 8th annual workshop, the theme of which is Curriculum Design for New Teaching Methods.

Sponsored by NATO and Partnership for Peace Consortium with the Serbian University of Defense and Military Academy, the working group’s goal was to compare teaching methods. Featured methods include a more interactive relationship between teacher and students, and to prompt critical thinking and questioning. Faculty members from 11 Nations: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Mauritania, Moldova, Mongolia, Serbia and Ukraine will take some of these ideas back home with a new starting point on how to educate in the future.

The Rector of the University of Defense, Serbian Army Lt. Gen. (Dr.) Miodrag Jevtić, gave the key note speech in Belgrade on April 7. He outlined the long legacy of military education in Serbia, their interest in showing best practices and learning new education methods. He expressed great pride that Serbia was asked to host this event.

On April 11, the EDWG will hold a national day where 20 Serbian facility members will get together and share their ideas how to design their military education system. This event is also a kick off for Serbia’s Defense Education Enhancement Program (DEEP).
