Model of realization of personalized learning of students of higher education institution  
Tkachuk H. V.  (download)
[in Ukrainian]

Abstract. In the article, the author considers the organization of personalized learning of students of higher education by designing a pedagogical model of education. Personalized learning improves the educational process, as the student can build their own educational trajectory according to their individual needs, interests, preferences, and abilities. The proposed pedagogical model reveals the structure and content of personalized education of higher education institutions, the central figure of which is the student, his educational needs, interests, and abilities. We have identified the purpose of personalized learning, the principles and main stages that reflect the dynamics of its operation, as well as the pedagogical conditions for effective implementation of the proposed model. We have identified the basic principles of personalized learning. These are the principle of consciousness and activity of the student, accessibility and comprehensibility of the content of education, flexibility and adequacy of the educational process, the principle of consistency and dosage of educational content, social participation of participants in the educational process, control and self-control. The implementation of the model should be carried out in stages. These processes include the processes of initiation, diagnosis, and design, integration, with the latter process occurring cyclically. Pedagogical conditions are the main condition for the effectiveness of personalized learning. In the process of implementing personalized learning, it is advisable to adhere to the normative, socio-psychological, and organizational-pedagogical conditions of the educational process. The development of the model made it possible to identify certain characteristics of personalized learning. In particular, it allows to significantly increase the motivation to learn, to build an individual educational trajectory, to adapt the learning process in accordance with the student's interactions and through the mechanisms of electronic environment systems.

Key words: personalized learning, adaptive learning, learning model, pedagogical conditions, educational environment, university.

Academic mobility in Slovakia: incoming and outgoing student migration flows  
Klyuchkovych T. (download)
[in Ukrainian]

Abstract. In the article modern situation of academic mobility of students in the Slovak Republic under the conditions of educational internationalization is analyzed. The main conditions and tools of implementing academic mobility in Slovakia are clarified. Academic mobility for all participants of educational process under modern conditions is an important part of higher education internalization. It is defined that implementation of development strategy of international mobility is one of the priority tasks for the national policy in the Slovak Republic. Academic mobility finds systematic support at the Slovak state level. Appropriate conditions have been created for the implementation of academic mobility at the institutional, national and European levels. Along with the benefits, internationalization and mobility poce new challenges for Slovak society. This article looks at three aspects of student mobility flows: incoming mobility, outgoing mobility and mobility balance. There is a problem of imbalance between incoming and outgoing forms of mobility in Slovakia. It is empirically established that Slovakia belongs to the countries with strong flows of initial degree mobility. In the context of Slovakia's European integration, there has been an increase in the number of students participating in academic mobility programs. Factors that stimulate the initial academic mobility of Slovak students are the attractive image of foreign universities, the quality of education and educational services, better employment opportunities, various scholarship programs, lower tuition costs, social support for students and others. Factors such as proximity, language, historical ties, geographical distance, bilateral relationships and political framework conditions are key determinants in selecting a country in which to study. Despite the obvious benefits of international mobility, researchers are increasingly focusing on the problem of "brain drain" and the loss of intellectual potential. Slovakia's problem is that students do not return to their home country after completing their studies abroad. Academic mobility has become one of the channels of migration in Slovakia. In the long term, the potential of the educated and highly qualified population is weakening. This can negatively affect the development of society in economic, cultural, scientific and social aspects. Based on the analysis of the current state of mobility in Slovakia, it is concluded that the country's higher education system is characterized by a significant degree of internationalization.

Key words: Slovakia, higher education, foreign students, educational migration, incoming mobility, outgoing mobility.

Modern Regularities and Principles of Foreign Language Education of Future Specialists in International Relations in the Process of Professional Training  
Vasylyshyna N.  (download)
[in Ukrainian]

Abstract. The relevance of this study is that in Ukraine, foreign language education acquires a special status, which is argued by the fact that language creates an effective basis for international and intercultural understanding. However, the problem of implementing intercultural foreign language education in higher education institutions needs further comprehensive analysis and solution. This is evidenced by the analysis of the state of intercultural foreign language education in the works of national and foreign scholars, which demonstrated the numerous views and scientific achievements on the successful implementation of foreign language education in Ukraine. The study of foreign languages in higher education institutions of Ukraine is an indisputable positive feature of curricula, based on the recognition that the study of languages along with significant practical, educational, educational and developmental potential is a necessary condition for the education of modern specialists in international relations. On the other hand, today it is an urgent need in terms of the chosen socio-economic vector of development of our state, as the implementation of the concept of "learning languages during life" is impossible without careful study of languages by future experts in international relations. The study allows us to identify the leading patterns and principles of foreign language education in the European Higher Education Area. In the course of the research it was found out that foreign language education of specialists in international relations is based on regularities and general didactic principles that reflect the main approaches to the organization of education, namely: developmental and educational nature of education; scientificity; regularity and consistency; accessibility; connection of theory with practice; individualization. The research concluded that an open European educational space highlights significant prospects, while requiring efforts to remove barriers and upgrade foreign language teaching and learning systems in higher education. The formation of a single European cultural and economic space actualizes the creation of parameters of "europeanness" of modern Ukrainian science, culture and education.

Key words: foreign language education, patterns, principles, training, specialists in international relations.

Shevchenko I. , Semenova A., Istomina N., Sharonova N.  (download)
[in Ukrainian]

Abstract. As a result of reviewing the scientific literature, studying the legal framework, analysis of socio-economic conditions, modern practice of higher education institutions management, a contradiction was found between the high requirements for free economic management and the lack of criteria for evaluating its effectiveness on the basis of innovative technologies. This contradiction can be resolved by developing appropriate models and methods for evaluating the work effectiveness of higher education institutions. In this case, the method should be based on the results of the basic structural unit of the institution of higher education, meaning the department. The purpose of the work is to increase the informativeness of assessing the effectiveness for departments of higher education institutions by determining comprehensive performance indicators through the methodology of public funding distribution. The methodology is based on the principles of financing higher education institutions introduced by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine. In order to create a methodology for assessing the quality of a higher education institution functioning, a set of criteria for assessing the education quality in higher education institution, the quality of scientific and international activities and financial activities were considered. The developed methodology allows to determining complex performance indicators through the method of public funding distribution, which operates with the following data: indicator of the estimated contingent of higher education; indicators of average competitive scores of entrants to study at the bachelor's and master's levels of education; an indicator of the scale of a higher education institution activity; indicators of personnel of scientific and pedagogical workers; indicator of a money amount from scientific works; students-winners indicators of a student scientific works competitions and Olympiads; an indicator of the publications number and citations according to the scientometric databases Scopus and Web of Science, meaning the international recognition for employees of higher education institutions. The formed methodology can be used by the administration of a higher education institution to calculate possible funding for the next year, determine the amount of funding for its departments, and so on.

Key words: institutions of higher education, public funding, efficiency, evaluation of departments.

Abstract. The article is dedicated to the study if students with special musical education have any benefits of stress coping over students of other specialties during the pandemic. The main purpose is to study the attitude of student musicians to overcome stressful situations caused by COVID-19 in the learning process. Research objectives include: current state of music education in the context of forced quarantine distance learning; the impact of forced quarantine distance learning on stress among students of music and non-music specialties; the analysis of stress coping skills and the impact of music education on them; recommendations for improving the psychological and pedagogical interaction of the participants in the educational process.  The study involved 160 respondents, 80 of them are music students and 80 students of other specialties that do not belong to the study of musical art. To collect information and data, the study participants were asked to fill out a Google form. The results of the study show that online learning is very time-consuming and that losing a satisfactory work-life balance is stressful. But students became more organized in managing their activities. Internet platforms have proven useful for sharing materials, communicating, sharing information and content, and keeping track of all work done. Thus, there is a tendency towards easier tolerance of stress by musicians, although our study showed that with a slight margin of 80.6%, people without musical education consider themselves happier by 82%. This is also confirmed by the fact that non-musicians are more optimistic about their future according to the results obtained on the Beck's Hopelessness Scale, where 2 units are for musicians and 1 for non-musicians. These results indicate that hopelessness has not been identified and students are optimistic about their future. In the context of stress coping recommendations for students are provided. In conclusion, based on the information gained and own experience there is a variety of ways to obtain benefits from both online and offline learning forms for both musicians and non-musicians.

Key words: stress, forced distance learning, COVID-19, education, higher education, coping with stress.
