“Pedagogical education is a true catalyst for the development of society. Not only the future of our country but of the whole world for many decades to come depends on quality and competency level of teachers that graduate from our universities. That is why the cooperation agreement between Minin university and the Ion Creangă Chisinau State Pedagogical University that we have signed today, is so relevant and important. I am sure that our work in the field of pedagogical innovations, research activities and academic exchange programs will be useful for both universities”
