Pronchev G.B., Goncharova I.V. - Mathematical training of sociology students in the conditions of globalization pp. 1-9


Abstract: This article is dedicated to the discussion of problems of higher education that are associated with globalization. Russia's entrance to the Bologna process alongside the transition onto the three-level system of education "bachelor's degree - master's degree - post-graduate school" for increasing the rating of Russian education abroad, provide educational services to foreign citizens in Russian universities, expand and strengthen the country's positions in the world educational space, can be viewed as a process of globalization of education in Russia.  Based on the example of mathematical training of sociology students, the work analyzes the occurring problems, as well as the possible ways for their resolution. The classical and modern theoretical positions of the social and humanitarian branches of scientific knowledge formed the methodological basis of the research, which allows analyzing the Federal Program for the Development of Education over the period of 2016-2020 and the content of the training program for bachelor's sociologists on the GEF standard. The authors come to the conclusion that the impact of globalization processes upon education has positive and negative sides. Negative sides, such as, for example, the shortage of hours for acquiring new knowledge beyond the scope of the standard, can be balanced by the development and implementation of the remote forms of education. The graded rating system of the assessment of knowledge as a concurrent factor to the globalization of education must be implemented with consideration of the national pedagogical achievements. Meeting this requirements will lead to the successful acquisition of standards, and eventually, to the competitiveness of future Russian sociologists.

Knowledge and understanding
Rozin V.M. - One of the mechanisms of formation of creativity and vision of new reality pp. 161-171


Abstract: The article examines one of the mechanisms of creativity. It puts forward the following hypothesis: the existential problems of personality find their resolution in the new vision, which is initially incomprehensible and unacceptable, but then, being understood, or in other words, interpreted and conceptualized, and thus becomes clear. For confirmation of this hypothesis, the article analyses the three cases, discusses the notions of vision, reality, and existence, as well as applies the author’s concept of dreams. Creativity begins with the intersubjective situations and subjective problems; in addition to the search and realization of certain methodology, it suggests the new vision, conceptualization, and a number of other procedures, and ends with the existence and detection of the new reality. At the same time, the following methodology was being applied: posing of the questions, case analysis, distinction of the examined phenomena, and construction of notions. As a result, the study was able to demonstrate that the important mechanism of creativity consists in the existential problems, which are solved by the person through inventing the schemes.  Based on them, establishes the new vision of reality alongside understanding of what is happening, which initially seems paradoxical.
Mass information processing in training
Romanov E.V., Drozdova T.V. - Distance training: necessary and sufficient conditions of effective implementation pp. 172-195


Abstract: Reasons for necessary and sufficient conditions of effective implementation of distance training are performed in the context of the strategic priorities of modernization of education connected with ensuring its availability and a continuity. Distance training is considered as purposeful process of the organization of activities of students for mastering the "pressed" human experience, to acquisition of experience of creative activities and development of capabilities for the purpose of application and acquisition of knowledge during all life on the basis of use of remote technologies of training.Information technologies and their use in the course of the mediated interaction of students and pedagogical workers only indirectly can promote forming of the corresponding values and accepted in the society of rules and standards of behavior that in the long term does demanded the researches devoted to "embedding" of distance training in educational process so that educational function of education was staticized. On the basis of the categorical and conceptual analysis the concept "distance training" is specified. On the basis of the analysis of the institutional bases of implementation of electronic training and remote educational technologies sufficient conditions of effective implementation of distance training are proved. Reasons for necessary conditions are performed on the basis of the analysis of the existing educational practice of the higher education.To the necessary conditions determining scientific novelty of a research, the need for a legislative regulation of limit of classroom load of the teacher and loading connected with accomplishment of research, educational and methodical, organizational and educational work belong (that assumes change of approach to financing); availability of the corresponding hardware and competences for development of remote technologies of training. The institutional bases of a regulation of educational activities (sufficient conditions of effective implementation of distance training) are the documents regulating activities of basic divisions of the educational organizations and options of network interaction (integration of educational programs or use of resources of other organizations).Conclusions: Use of remote technologies of training shall promote development of new approaches to assessment of productivity of work of the teacher of the higher school on the basis of creation of a single (All-Russian) method of calculation of rating of the teacher of higher education institution. The measure of efficiency of educational, research, educational and methodical, organizational and educational activities which is performed by the teacher shall find reflection in it. Reasonable need of a legislative regulation of load of the teacher of the higher school assumes change of approaches to financing of higher education institutions: it is necessary to include the works connected with development of remote technologies of training and creation of intellectual property items for use in educational process in the section of the state task. Indicators of monitoring of efficiency of activities of higher education institutions should be added with indicators on which it is possible to judge activities of higher education institution regarding increase in availability of the higher education and the created conditions for implementation of the concept of training at an extent of all life.Specific weight of the means received by the educational organization from use of results of intellectual activities, in total income of the educational organization" also "the amount of the created results of intellectual activities having legal protection in Russia and beyond its limits" shall become priority performance indicators of research activities ".
