On November 6, the results of subject ratings “Business and Economics”, “Education”, “Law” and “Social Sciences” were published. In the hundred of the best universities in the world, the THE-2020 “Education” subject rating was first presented at Kazan Federal University, which demonstrates a comparison with last year’s positive dynamics – position 94 versus last year’s figure 101-125.
Rating of higher education institutions of the World University, grouped into blocks: “Teaching”, “Research”, “Citation”, “International Interaction” and “Income from Production Activities of Innovations)”.
According to the director of the Institute of Psychology and Education of KFU, the head of the priority direction for the development of the 21st Century Teacher University, Aydar Kalimullin, who is in the top 100 universities, is the result of systematic and focused work of the university’s collective specialists in the field of teacher education.
– The growth in the subject rating “Education” is directly related to the allocation of teacher education in the four priority areas of development of KFU – along with medicine, oil production and astrophysics.
Starting in 2011, after two pedagogical universities entered the Kazan University, the university began to create its own model of teacher education, which is notable for its variability in the teaching profession and the fundamental nature of the training of subject teachers. A key feature of this system is the combination of the advantages of classical and pedagogical universities in teacher training.
– The system of pedagogical education at KFU today includes three models of teacher training: traditional (pedagogical faculties that independently prepare for teaching in a particular field), distributed (creation of pedagogical departments and departments as part of several professional educational institutions), capable of organizing high-quality subject Training of future teachers in the Integrative Learning System is provided only after the first or second year. Teaching profiles) teacher training models.
Joining the university in the framework of the “5-100” project is aimed at increasing the international competitiveness of scientific educational institutions.
– The “5-100” project allows each of the participants to identify their strengths and then move towards the goal. I hope that KFU specialists in the field of teacher education will work in cooperation with other scientific organizations – medicine, psychology, rights, IT technologies and others. Such an approach, combined with the creation of variable conditions, can lead to an increase in the quality of the educational process, the intensification of activities in the field of developing new teaching methodologies and technologies, and thereby you can get the value of research results at a new level in free space.
One of the most pressing tasks was the conduct of scientific research conducted by the World, European, British, American educational research associations. From these reports, the scientific community received information on innovative processes in the field of education that are taking place in Russia today.
Today, employees of the Institute of Psychology and Education together with leading research and educational centers in the UK, USA, Portugal, Slovenia, Germany and other countries participate in dozens of research projects. The basis for cooperation is the desire to contribute to the solution of educational problems relevant to the whole world. Research results are published in leading international pedagogical journals.
– Providing opportunities for active interaction with scientists around the world. Proper research will allow the development of multinational standards for teacher training, which will reflect the most important requirements for his professional qualities.
“Citation” in the ranking of “WUR” in the subject in the direction of “Education” KFU took second place in the world.
Aydar Kalimullin is sure that well-known institutions, in which they are evaluated quite widely: by the number of teachers, scientific publications and more. The exam, chooses a university, looked at just such ratings.
