Implicit theory of personality as a prerequisite for pedagogical intuitions development

Garipova Y.M.


The article is devoted to the study of pedagogical intuition, its interconnection with the ideas of man about intellect and personality. Pedagogical intuition is frequently used in teachers' work, but the concept of pedagogical intuition and ways of its development is not clear. At the same time, developed pedagogical intuition, as an ability of a teacher to make quick decisions in their professional activity, allows them to simplify and speed up the process of solving professional issues, which is especially important for modern Russian teachers. Due to the high level of bureaucratization of education and a large teaching load, teachers in Russia are very time-bounded in their work.The article suggests that pedagogical intuition can be developed through the development of other personal characteristics. This study examined the relationship of intuitive abilities on the one hand, and the implicit theories of the personality, its learning objectives - on the other. To confirm this thesis, 50 senior students of the pedagogical university of Naberezhnye Chelny were interviewed. Since the sample was not large, the author of this article does not deny the possible error in the results of the study. However, it should be noted that the sample of the study will be increased several times to confirm the results obtained.As a result of the study, significant results were obtained on two scales of the questionnaire of implicit theories and learning objectives by C. Dweck and the questionnaire of the intuitive style of S. Epstein.

On strategies of teaching a foreign language in the context of inclusive education

Evstropova N.S., Rakova E.V.


Currently, the so-called "inclusive education", which acts as the only internationally recognized tool to enforce everyone’s right to education, is becoming a very important part of the education system reform in Russia. Inclusive education, as part of the educational policy of many countries - members of the international organization UNESCO, is seen as a dynamic approach, which presupposes a positive attitude to the diversity of students as well as perception of individual characteristics not as a problem, but as an opportunity to enrich the learning process. High quality education for all students is an essential requirement of educational inclusion applied in international practice. Nowadays, in modern practice there is already some positive experience in implementation of inclusion in the process of teaching foreign languages at higher educational institutions. Basic knowledge of a foreign language helps such students to socialize, to become more independent and to avoid difficulties when communicating and interacting in the educational environment. Thus, the main task of inclusive education - socialization of children with disabilities is implemented. Moreover, practice of this type is based on the idea of accepting the individuality of each student. That is why, the process should be organized in such way to meet the needs of students with disabilities. Therefore, this paper is aimed at studying the strategies of involving students with disabilities in the educational process and improving their results when teaching a foreign language. The authors focus on Internet resources and communication strategies used in interaction with students in the framework of inclusive education.

Unsuccessful language learners: the content of the notion and the typology

Igolkina N.I.


The necessity to improve effectiveness and efficiency in education forces teachers and scholars to create and implement new forms of interventions. Unsuccessful language learners need special consideration from the teachers to diagnose the courses of low performance and apply effective means to improve their performance in foreign language learning. Various problems which language learners face in second language acquisition lead to considering unsuccessful learners as a separate phenomenon. The comparison of the terms «unsuccessful learners» и «low performance learners» has shown that the former term comprises subjective learning assessment, whereas the latter term includes the assessment of the performance correspondence to certain criteria. The approach to unsuccessful learners typology is introduced which is based on the relations between four factors. Behavioural factor reflects the use or lack of language learning strategies use. Cognitive factor is based on the language aptitude scores and depends on the development of cognitive functions. Emotional factor is characterised by the emotional intelligence level. Linguistic factor is revealed in the comparison of the native and target languages as well as in the peculiarities of the first language speech. The further development of this typology will allow researchers to develop diagnostic tools to define the courses of failures and low performance and to create recommendations and tools for language teachers.

Comparative and correlation analysis of experimental work for development of university teacher's knowledge management skills

Kalmykova D.A.


The paper considers the problem of the inconsistency of the traditional educational process of higher education with changes in the socio-economic environment at the present stage of development of society. The conditions that are necessary today for training students with multidisciplinary thinking oblige the teacher to act as a consultant, coach, mentor and manager-organizer of the educational process, which has now become identical to the knowledge management process. Changing the role of the teaching staff of the educational organization of higher education actualizes the task of development of university teacher's knowledge management skills. The article presents the results of comparative and correlation analyzes of experimental work on development of university teacher’s knowledge management skills, considered as an integrative property of a person, combining value-motivational, instrumental-digital, scientific-research, evaluative-analytical, interactive-communication and academic and business components. The author proposed indicators of the selected components in the readiness structure, described their development and determined the dominant indicators of each component as a result of establishing and formative experiments. The materials of the experimental work presented in the article are aimed at identifying and enhancing both the relationships between the components of development and the relationships between the dominant indicators of structural elements. The results obtained indicate the development of all components in the readiness structure by means of additional professional educational programs. The analysis allows us to talk about the possibility of forming the components of the university teacher’s development for knowledge management due to the compensatory properties of indicators of the elements of its structure.

Hermeneutical approach as a methodological basis of soft skills development of technical students

Labzina P.G., Menshenina S.G.


Increased requirements of employers forced researchers to pay attention to the lack of academic knowledge and professional competence, so-called hard skills, when applying for a job. Multitasking has become a defining trend in all professional fields, which confronts professionals with problems that do not have a solution algorithm. We need special mechanisms for adapting the employees to constant challenges and additional knowledge and skills, the function of which is performed by soft skills. This article focuses on the development of creative and critical thinking as one of the categories of soft skills, as it is the style of thinking that determines the level of success in the professional sphere. Today, with the development of the information society, the problem of understanding a large amount of information, its processing, correct interpretation by students and further adaptation for application in professional field is a crucial one. Communication in the field of science and technology is realized in the form of discourse, which actualizes the development of future graduates creative thinking through the ability formation to explicate meaningful content, decode and deverbalize in the process of perceiving, understanding and interpreting professionally relevant information when working with scientific and technical discourse. The discipline of "Foreign Language" provides the necessary environment for developing soft skills working with the discourse in question. In this case reading is a tool for obtaining information by comparison, comparing data, analyzing the information received, highlighting the main and secondary information, establishing causality, assessing. The hermeneutic approach to the development of soft skills ensures the optimal conditions to activate mental operations responsible for effective perception and further adaptation of the information received for professional purposes. Practical part of the research is to compile a set of tasks for working with text material, which will ensure the information understanding and interpretation through certain reading strategies stimulating mental activity.

The impact of vocational training or retraining on professional activities of older people

Lapshova E.S., Nikolaeva S.V.


According to statistics, the number of people aged 60+ worldwide will double by 2050. In Russia, in connection with the change in federal legislation, the problem of the labor activity of older people is being updated. According to these data, governments of different countries are taking more and more measures to ensure the employment of older people. Lifelong learning provides an opportunity for older people to work especially in the workplace, where labor requirements and competencies are constantly changing. The purpose of this study is a theoretical analysis of the impact of vocational training and retraining on the work of older people. During the survey of respondents, three main types of barriers to participation in vocational training were identified: situational, institutional, and dispositional. During the investigation, a complex analysis was used, which includes the socio-demographic, socio-gerontological, statistical-economic, sociological, socio-psychological approaches, as well as sociological methods including the method of observation and conversation for obtaining, processing and interpreting information were used. The results indicate that vocational training and retraining of older people is an important factor in their participation in work. The low coverage of older people with vocational education and retraining programs can be overcome by popularizing vocational education as a tool for developing a career, preventing a career decline, and adapting older people to the labor market.

Project management: process approach

Sedykh E.P.


The problem of the effectiveness of the use of different approaches in the management of an educational organization is relevant and significant. Currently, there is a necessity to improve management processes and to formation of a more flexible and mobile management system that works on the result and allows to assess the effectiveness of activities at any point in the process. Project management has proven to be effective under conditions of limited funding and the necessity for "quick results". At the same time, we can observe certain conflicts of management actions that occur as a result of imposing a matrix structure of project management on the functional structure of a traditional educational organization. In this case, the process approach allows combining the advantages of project activities with the regulated implementation of traditional University processes.The paper reveals the logic of the process approach, its main advantages and disadvantages, requirements and principles of implementation of the process approach in an educational organization. This paper describes the practice of applying the process approach in the management of projects of Minin University: it characterizes the management processes of a project activity through the project office system, and the logic of a managing the chain of processes of individual projects.The author describes the logic of the process approach to project management, characterizes the strengths and weaknesses of process management, analyzes the combination of this approach with project management, describes the practice of applying the process approach to project management at Minin University, lists the effects of the introduction of the process approach in management.The final part of the paper discusses the possibility of further improvement of the project management system through the use of the process approach, the arguments about the necessity to use process management in combination with other management approaches, reveals the potential for improving the quality of project activities through the use of process management tools and principles of quality management of the organization, based on the process approach.

Education for sustainable development: new opportunities with the rce network

Yurina M.V., Lopukhova Y.V., Kuznetsova G.D.


The goals of sustainable development can not be achieved only through technological innovation, policy decisions and financial support. Education for sustainable development (ESD) makes it possible to deal constructively and creatively with current and future global challenges and to create a sustainable society. A special place in the global distribution of ESD is currently played by the network of Regional centres of expertise (RCE) established under the auspices of the UN University. The RSEs form a global network of formal and non-formal educational institutions and organizations to mobilize them in the field of ESD. Currently, this network includes more than 168 centers, two of which are located in Russia. According to the profiles of RCEs worldwide the main objective of their activities is consolidation of educational efforts of universities and different cultural and environmental institutions and organizations, together with the municipality, for increasing public awareness of sustainable development. The key partners of RCEs, the leading regional Universities, combined on one platform, are acting as an educational consortium, which is mainstreaming ESD by its appropriate integration in the curricula of formal education, from early childhood rearing to primary, secondary, technical and vocational and higher education, and also nonformal education initiatives, particularly through sustainability-related intended learning outcomes. The article summarizes the experience of RCEs in the field of ESD, highlights the most promising activities, forms of implementation of RCE projects together with universities, identifies the most urgent needs of educational institutions in the field of ESD. The authors of this article found themselves in a situation where after the merger of two regional universities the RCE previously hosted by one of them (RCE Samara, Russia) requires brand new start. Obviously there was a lack of a formal conceptual framework for development in the previous period. Thus, the article is an attempt to find new ideas and new ways of development for the existing center, to make it a leading example in Russia of the power of education for sustainable development, where people of all ages are given the knowledge and tools they need to assume responsibility for creating a better tomorrow and a sustainable future.
