The paper discusses the first outcomes of the initial stage of the ERASMUS+ Capacity Building for Higher Education project that has started in October 2017 (# 586060-EPP-1-2017-1-RO-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP). The name of the project is "Excellence in Engineering Education through Teacher Training and New Pedagogic Approaches in Russia and Tajikistan". The Introduction part describes the goals, main activities of the project and composition of partner consortium with universities from EC, Russia and Tajikistan.

The introduction includes the description of the Online Platform as an important communication hub and as a tool for preparation, development, quality control, management, sustainability and dissemination of project outcomes within and beyond the lifetime of the project.

The main part of the paper introduces the methodology for the monitoring of Russian and Tajikistan practices in teaching engineering disciplines and teacher enhancement approaches based on literature review, adaptation of CDIO and ISO 9004 standards, implementation of self-assessment models and methodology. The basic concepts underlying the project research are learning outcomes approach, teacher paradigm, EU priorities in improving teacher quality and teacher education, common European framework, TUNING methodology, competence descriptors.

The results of piloting of the monitoring methodology implemented at Bauman Moscow State Technical University is discussed in the third section of the paper with the conclusions and suggestions for improvement of monitoring methodology. The results of full-fledged monitoring implemented at all partner universities will be presented at the training seminar on the best European practices in teaching of engineering disciplines in March 2018 in Bucharest Polytechnic University.
