Date: 18/05/2024 | Source: Pyongyang Times | Read original version at source

The sector of general education has recently introduced education through optional subjects as part of the efforts to make innovations in the structure of education and works to intensify technical education.

It started education through optional subjects on a trial basis at dozens of senior middle schools across the country with training forces ready to develop students’ gifts and aptitudes to the maximum with the beginning of the new school year this year.

It offered short courses for teachers who would carry out the curriculum for first-year students of senior middle schools based on the second universal 12-year compulsory education programme in order to successfully enforce such education in the fields of literature, science, the arts, sports and technology. And relevant schools assigned study courses rationally in consideration of their teaching forces and speeded up the thorough preparations for teaching.

Relevant areas promoted the work to select students who wanted to study optional subjects and admit or transfer such students to schools selected as test units within the areas, and solved some other problems.

According to an official concerned, the experience of such schools will be generalized in the future.

As scores of new technical senior middle schools (technical classes) are to be established, efforts are being directed to making ready teachers of special subjects and properly securing experimental apparatuses and materials. This is of great importance in making students acquire full general basic knowledge and more than one technical skill.

The sector of higher education is pushing the work to improve the structure of education.

As part of the work, the field has introduced a full credit system and raised the quality of education at postgraduate schools.

The number of universities and faculties introducing a full credit-based educational management system has increased from this new school year.

In connection with the introduction of the full credit system at major universities and faculties of different universities, a technical workshop was held to help raise the qualifications of educators. The universities and faculties introducing the new educational management system opened up many subdivided subjects and accordingly created new curriculums and teaching programmes.

Meanwhile, they pushed ahead with the work to create good conditions for experiment and practice.

The sector also grasped the situations of education at all postgraduate schools and integrated and rearranged the schools, making it possible to decisively improve the quality of education at them from the new school year.

In order to further intensify education at postgraduate schools aimed at actively developing the fields of cross-disciplinary science and cutting-edge science and training talents who are a grade higher than others in a qualitative way, the sector plans to hold a postgraduate students’ hypothesis and idea contest, scientific research achievement presentation and foreign language symposium this year and has taken practical measures for competent lecturers and researchers to teach at postgraduate schools.
