Experience of Applying New Approaches in the Organization of Training Students of Master’s Programme in Psychology and Education (Preschool Teachers)



The paper analyses several principles of designing the educational process in the master’s programme in Psychology and Education (Preschool Teachers), in particular: the networking principle which implies cooperation with preschool educational institutions; the practice-oriented principle that creates conditions for increasing practical training; the modular principle that combines similar learning disciplines into a larger instructional unit; the principle of individualisation and differentiation that implies designing instruction according to the individual’s basic (non-basic) education.Using the “Individualisation and differentiation of educational work with preschool children” module as an example, the paper shows the opportunities of applying various forms and methods of controlling the educational outcomes in students of the master’s programme using individual and group, classroom-based and out-of-class forms of control (theoretical; practical; ICT-based; case study-based; based on bibliographic analysis).
