PROJECT-ORIENTED TRAINING IN PROFESSIONAL LEARNING OF BACHELORS IN CHEMISTRY

Abstract:

The authors have shown the experience of using the methodology of project-oriented training for the implementation of the international CDIO initiative standards in the disciplines of 1–2 courses of the bachelor's program in Chemistry. The research activities of students in the SurGU «Local Farm» project aimed at creating a system of chemical monitoring of the state and quality of plants grown in protected (closed) soil are considered in detail. It was shown that as a result of project activity in the disciplines «Introduction to project activity» (1–2 semesters) and «Project activity» (3–4 semesters), along with general professional competences, personal and interpersonal competences were formed and developed (communication skills, flexibility, ability to teamwork), and also the level of personal motivation for engineering professions was increased. A comparative analysis showed that the requirements for the learning outcomes to graduates of educational programs in the field of engineering and technology (CDIO Syllabus) are in good agreement with the competencies outlined in the new standards FGOS (3++). This demonstrates the applicability of CDIO standards to the implementation of Bachelor’s programs in Chemistry.
