UTMN representatives take part in the international research conference in Dresden

Education 4 December 2018
Lyudmila Volosnikova, Director of the UTMN Institute of Psychology and Pedagogical Sciences, described a new model of teacher training, based on the principles of variability, individual educational trajectories and inclusion.

The international scientific conference “Teacher Education in (Trans)Formation: Global Trends, National Processes and Local Factors” was held at the Technical University of Dresden. 40 leading scholars in the field of educational sciences from 15 different countries attended the conference. Russia was represented by four universities, including the University of Tyumen.

“Educational strategies of the 21st century are built on the evidenсe-based education policy as well as analysis of educational data. The research results revealed the following trends in teacher training: more inclusion, more reflection, more individualization, more digitalization,” said Lyudmila Volosnikova

There is also an overall trend that shows a notable increase in the length of teacher training. In many European countries, including Germany, the Czech Republic and Poland, it is possible to become a teacher only after getting a Master's degree in education. During the conference, particular attention was paid to the results of international research in the sphere of school education and analysis of national strategies that lead to good performance.

In 2016 and 2017, four UTMN representatives from the Institute of Psychology and Pedagogical Sciences visited Dresden and presented their results at the international seminar on empirical research in the field of teacher training. Julia Koinova-Zöllner, Ph.D, researcher at the Faculty of Education of TI-Dresden, has been holding this seminar for many years.
