10. External relations

10.1. Collaboration with employers



Collaboration manifests itself in a less direct way, because the professional Master’s study programme “Didactics of Mathematics and Computer Sciences” was launched, licensed and is implemented in practice with the support of the representatives of the Ministry of Education and Science and the local municipality. Informative mass media testify that, taken as a whole, the number of Mathematics and Computer Science teachers in schools of Latvia is not sufficient (also the fact that the average work-load of these teachers in the country exceeds the number of lessons planned for one load). There is still observed a tendency: graduates from Rīga higher education establishments choose a job in Rīga or in its neighbourhood, but the LAP graduates – in Liepāja or nearby, therefore a logical continuation of the programme is graduates’ choice of their future jobs in the schools of local governments, thus making an essential contribution to the development of education in Kurzeme region.

In the academic year 2007/2008 cooperation with employers will manifest itself as a concluded contract about the possible practice placements with the Liepāja City Education Board and other local governments and the educational institutions under their supervision.

10.2. Collaboration with higher educational establishments in Latvia and foreign countries



Practical implementation of the study programme is basically ensured by the members of the Liepāja Academy of Pedagogy teaching staff, however, in the academic year 2006/2007 also visiting lecturers from other higher educational establishments of Latvia have participated in teaching separate courses: researchers of the Rīga Technical University Distance Learning Centre Mg. eng. Bruno Žuga, and Mg. phys. Rūdolfs Gulbis, as well as Professor Dr.habil.paed. A.Ažubalis (Lithuania).

Collaboration with similar study programmes manifests itself also as information exchange with the lecturers of education establishments of the corresponding type. Most often such contacts occur during traditional international conferences of the Baltic countries dedicated to the history of teaching mathematics and the present problematic issues, which take place in Latvia, Lithuania or Estonia every year in turn. The last conference of this kind took place in May 2007 in the University of Latvia, and Professor E.Ģingulis, from the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Docent Dz.Krūče and lecturer A.Kukuka participated in its work. Usually also issues of using information and communication technology in the study process are discussed during these conferences, therefore participation brings also ideas for improvement of the computer teacher training process

In April 2007, within the framework of ERASMUS programme, programme Director Prof. E.Ģingulis, visiting Rostock University, got acquainted with the education of mathematics teachers and further education at this university, as well as acquainted the German colleagues with the experience in organisation of the Didactics of Mathematics and Computer Science Master study programme in the LAP.

11. Possibilities for students to continue their studies in higher educational establishments


After obtaining professional Master’s degree graduates are entitled to continue their studies as Doctorate students in Pedagogy in some of the higher education establishments of Latvia or the European Union. At present in Latvia such places are – Liepāja Academy of Pedagogy, University of Latvia, Daugavpils University and Latvia Agricultural University.

In case the implementation of the study programme is interrupted, an agreement has been concluded with the University of Latvia and with Daugavpils University – Master students are given an opportunity to continue their studies in the University of Latvia or Daugavpils University.
