Furthering their shared commitment to providing high-quality education and training on an international scale, Durham College (DC) and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) each signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Modi Edutech Private Limited (Modi Edutech) in India in February 2016. Both agreements explore opportunities to develop and deliver educational programming.
The MOU with the college focuses on early childhood/early-years education, while the MOU with UOIT focuses on teacher education and curriculum development, as well as leadership and research collaborations.
DC President Don Lovisa and UOIT President Dr. Tim McTiernan signed the agreements with Modi Edutech Chairman Alok Modi at a ceremony in New Delhi, while in India as part of Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne’s 10-day trade mission.
The agreements allow each institution to explore opportunities for leadership education programs and teacher education. Further discussions will look at co-operation for curriculum development, teaching and learning resources, occupational standards, testing and certification, labour market information systems and, for UOIT, collaborative research.
More than 100 leaders from Ontario’s higher education, business and sustainable development and urban infrastructure sectors joined the Premier’s delegation. The group visited New Delhi, Chandigarh, Hyderabad and Mumbai to promote Ontario’s business advantage and create opportunities for new partnerships.
