Abstract: Under the influence of geopolitical, economic, and technological changes, the world faces the reorientation of goals and functions of education – changes in types and length of education, requirement for graduates and colleges; appearance of the new educational structures and corresponding social institutions. The subject of this research is the modern trends in the area of global higher education. Thus, education represents not only the goal, but also means of achieving sustainable development by the virtue of: training the highly intellectual and goal-oriented personnel for the sustainable development of the society; promotion of the principles of sustainable development; formation of the socially responsible attitude among population and businesses; conducting scientific research in the field of sustainable development; and creation of constantly acting information platforms which accumulate the statistical data and the analytical information within the area of sustainable development. Based on the authors’ scientific internship in Slovakia and the acquired material, the main trends of development of higher education across the globe are being determined: orientation of education towards achieving sustainable development and social responsibility, practical orientation of education, interdisciplinarity of education, formation of the system of continuous education, shifting towards online education, and political orientation of education. The universities have to provide their graduates with the level of training that meets the demands of the job market. Therefore, the core of education should include the scientific, humanitarian, and technical base, in other words, a wide spectrum of humanitarian, mathematical, technical, and other disciplines. The universities should also be responsible for formation of the political views of their students, which increases the level resilience of the society towards the information warfare.

Potaturov V.A. - The problems of Russian humanitarian education in the conditions of globalization pp. 12-24


Abstract: The object of this research is the humanitarian education in Russia on the example of the higher school. The subject is the trends in development of education as a social institute in the context of information era and epoch of globalization. The author analyzes the role, place, meaning, and major issues of development of the Russian humanitarian education as a major rebroadcaster of culture. Special attention is given to the problem of humanitarian education within the framework of market relations and informatization of society as a whole, and the educational process in the higher school in particular. The author comes to the conclusion that the integral humanitarian knowledge suggests presence of an extensive scientific scope and a worldview component, without which a person cannot develop such principal humanitarian quality as confidence, necessary to establish a civil position. Humanitarian education in this regard has to become an instrument of self-cognition, self-upbringing, and self-actualization in the process of formation of identity. Scientific novelty consists in the comprehensive approach towards the role of humanitarian education and humanitarian knowledge within the life of human and society.
Modern strategies and forms of education
Yanik A.A., Popova S.M. - Main peculiarities of the modern scientific policy in Germany pp. 25-51


Abstract: This article introduces the results of the analysis of peculiarities of state control over the scientific development in the Federative Republic of Germany. The contemporary German experience represents interest for Russia due to the fact that both countries are federations, which leads to the emergence of more complex mechanisms of development and realization of the scientific policy, rather than in the countries with Unitarian form of government structure. The work carefully examines the fundamental elements of the system of strategic planning in the area of scientific development and innovations, including the key legal acts. The conclusion is made that the main specificities of the German management model for scientific development (absence of strict hierarchy; use of communicational mechanisms for the formation of “agreement platform” between all the political actors and groups of interest; delimitation of responsibilities, authority, and finances between the level of federation, level of lands, and others) are the result of implementation of the principles of cooperative federalism (“maximum agreement, minimum force”)  into all the spheres of social life. The effectively operating on all levels mechanisms of achieving political consensus, as well as extensive use of high-tech support of decision-making, help the government to provide the successiveness of the general strategic line in combination with the adaptiveness of the current scientific policy.

The article presents a brief review of the modern researches of each of the stated psychological constructs within the psychology of education. It is underlined that as a whole, proactiveness, resilience, and self-efficacy, form a psychological basis of self-determination. Their development gains an extensive practical importance for the psychological support of the subjects of educational process, while neglecting this aspect can create a potential threat to the psychological safety of students.  In all, 67 students in the age group of 19-20 have been examined. The type of research is cross-sectional. The results of the research demonstrated that students have a moderate level of development of self-efficacy, proactiveness, and resilience. The general self-efficacy produces a positive effect upon the involvement of the students into the educational process and their disposition towards the scientific research activity. The indexes of academic performance also depend on the academic control and academic self-efficacy. It is determined that separate components of proactiveness (self-reflection, metamotivation) and of resilience (involvement, control) positively affect the academic achievements and interests of the students. The authors developed the empirical models of influence of the aforementioned personality resources upon the academic performance and interests, which can be used for testing the program of psychological-pedagogical intervention based on the examined psychological constructs.
