Support for Local Gymnasium to Ensure Effective Feedback on the Quality of Education

This project addresses strong organisational needs for a more systematic and comprehensive feedback mechanisms to support the implementation process of a new Bilingual Curriculum in the school in Lithuania. This newly created curriculum offers the opportunity for students to study the national curriculum in English and with a more integrated approach for the different subjects to be studied by the students since September 2018. It is in its form unique to Lithuania and a number of uncertainties around the implementation process has made the need apparent for an innovative solution to address the lack of transparency. The aim of the project is to make the perceptions of progress and experience of the implementation process more transparent by asking the main stakeholders, the teachers and students for feedback.

To address the organisational needs, the approach for the innovation project which Master students developed was to design and implement a system of surveys as Feedback mechanism tools and to have a more systematic, comprehensive and reliable feedback channel to gather data from stakeholders. During the early phases of the implementation, the survey results will provide insights into the progress and achievement of defined success factors of the attempted implementation for the school. The results of the survey will be able to uncover early indicators of any misguided developments that might possibly lead to an unsuccessful or severely delayed implementation.
