PARTICIPATIVE TEACHER TRAINING IN PEDAGOGICAL UNIVERSITIES

Abstract:

The relevance of the problem of participative training of students in pedagogical universities arises from the socio-economic changes that required a revision of the main positions of higher pedagogical education. Based on the conceptual and terminological analysis, a terminological set of basic concepts of the studied issue was created. These terms include participative, participativity, pedagogical participativity, participative teacher training. Following the analysis of the authors’ understanding of participative training of students in pedagogical universities, the main characteristics of participative teacher training were identified. The article presents the authors’ definition of the concept of participative teacher training, which is understood as a training system (theoretical, meth-odological, practical) that pursues the formation of participative competence, reflecting the new subject-subject relations of a teacher and a student, characterized by equality, cooperation, co-management, common interests, views and values, creativity and pedagogical empathy. As a result of the theoretical comprehension of the studied issue, a competence-based andprocessmodel of participative teacher training was created. The model reflects the essence and the dynamics of the process under investigation. Theprocess model consists of value-based motivational, activity-contensive and reflective-corrective units. The value-based motivational unit determines the activity that ensures the adoption of pedagogical and universal values forming the internal, emotional orientation of the behavior and the activities of a future teacher. The activity-contensiveunitdetermines the formation of participative competence and the features of this process. The capability for critical introspection and awareness of one’s activity on the basis of reflection characterizes the reflective-corrective unit. The competence-based model represents the formation of participative competence on the part of the formation of participatory competencies: basic and special ones. The basic competencies show in a most general way the participative activities of future teachers while thespecial competencies reflect its specific characteristics. The methodological analysis of the essence of the studied issue made it possible to identify the methodological foundations: system-activity, participative and competence-based approaches.
