Development of the system attracting the best Russian students and graduates to enter the RUDN in the priority areas of training bachelors, specialists, as well as on master's, postgraduate and residency programs of the RUDN

On February 28, 2018, a webinar conference “I am a successful teacher! We form the criteria of success”.

The event was attended by teachers of secondary schools, teachers of vocational schools, Deputy Directors for upbringing, scientific and educational and methodological work, psychologists and practitioners engaged in research in the field of work with students at all levels of education.

The head of the School of Pedagogical Arts, Doctor of Pedagogical Sciences, Professor, academician of the International Higher Education Academy of Sciences (IHEAS), academician of the International Pedagogical Academy (MPA) Vyacheslav Ilyich Kazarenkov was the coordinator of the conference-webinar.

The conference-webinar was organized in full-time and remote form: those who wish to participate personally in communication with the academician gathered in the multimedia audience of the center of multidisciplinary pre-University education “Unikum” (the Faculty of Russian language and General Educational Disciplines of the RUDN); the rest of the students joined the scientific and methodological event via the Internet with the help of a special service for webinars “Mirapolis Virtual Room”.

Technologies of remote communication, worked out in the RUDN on the basis of “Unikum”, allowed all participants to hear and see each other, ask and answer questions.

Despite the fact that some participants first encountered this form of conference, during the webinar they were able to get used to the features of online communication. Many appreciated the convenience of this form of scientific and methodological contact, noting that today even schools of towns and villages of the Moscow region are technically very well equipped.

The record of the webinar conference is freely available on the website of the project “Specialized classes of the RUDN University”.

Development of the system attracting the best Russian students and graduates to enter the RUDN in the priority areas of training bachelors, specialists, as well as on master's, postgraduate and residency programs of the RUDN

Specialized subjects in secondary education are gaining popularity. Students have the opportunity to plunge into the University environment and choose their future specialization, while still at school.  In 2018, professors of specialized faculties of the RUDN conducted classes in 30 specialized classes of schools in Moscow and other regions of the Russian Federation.

The training was conducted in advanced courses focused on the specifics of University areas of study. They can increase the motivation of students and increase their interest in a particular area. In addition, specialized subjects contribute to the determination of the professional orientation of the child.

In order to control the acquired knowledge final certification of students was held. Analysis of the results of the final certification showed that the vast majority of students in specialized classes (95%) successfully mastered the proposed educational programs.

Result:

  • an increase in the average Unified State Exam mark by 2.98, mark 82.46 in 2018;
  • an increase in the number of winners and prize-winners of competitions (1st year, bachelor’ program) - 106 enrollees.
