Modernization of Teachers Training (Pedagogical) Education


October, 28 educators of Elabuga Institute of KFU took part in the seminar (webinar) for performers of modernization projects in teachers training (pedagogical) education and for representatives of other Russian universities, organized by one of the operators of the project - Moscow State Psychological and Pedagogical University.

The purpose of this webinar was a collective discussion of the results obtained in the course of project activities of the leading universities of Russia. The forum participants got acquainted with the reports of Anatoly Kasparzhak- professor of the Higher School of Economics, Svetlana Streltsova - associate professor of the Institute of Philology and Intercultural Communication of (Arctic) Federal University, Arcadii Margolis - professor of the Department of Educational Psychology, Faculty of Psychology of Education MSPPU, scientific supervisor of the project "Applied Bachelor" and "Professional (pedagogical) Master" in the course of modernization of pedagogical education,

The Head of the Department of Pedagogics of Elabuga Institute of KFU Vladislav Vinogradov participated in the vebinar as co-lecturer, who voiced the main results of the project aimed to strengthen the practical orientation of teachers training education. The main idea stressed by the report was the formation of professional competence of students in the course of interaction between institutions of higher and general education in the “Applied bachelor” project.

Vladislav Vinogradov attracted the attention of academic colleagues to the most important issues that have been identified in the course of work at the project and require concideration of professional education community: structuring of competences of teacher’s professional standard into large groups, the most significant for this profession; the possibility of turning a school into a site for teachers training using networking; consequently, the interest of a school itself in cooperation with a university; the redistribution of functions between a school and a university in their interaction.

Vladislav Vinogradov pointed out that nowadays we had got an urgent necessity of creating a space of "university-school" type in which the partners of educational activity take equal responsibility for the results of its own activity and the partners’ activity as well.

“At present time”, he continued, “it is a very difficult task, due to separate existence of the above mentioned educational institutions, due to lack of mechanisms of their interaction except of commonly used, all these facts do not allow to establish mutual responsibility of partners”.

“In case these problems were settled in the framework of the federal target program of education development until 2020 and the system of general education as well as teachers training education will receive a powerful impetus for its further development, otherwise”, in lecturer’s opinion, “all other changes in the system of general and higher education will get only cosmetic change that will prevent from being raised to a higher level”.

According to the responses of participants represented in the on-line portal with a text editor, a seminar was very informative and gave a new vision of opportunities for further work.
