The article discusses the issue of improvement of the quality of education using the feedback in form of regularly conducted control work during the lectures. The article contains numerical evaluation of academic progress of students learned at Faculty of Information Technologies and Computational Technics of MIEM NRU HSE.
The article is devoted to the actual task of increasing competitiveness in the international market of educational services, the possibilities of the system of preuniversity training of foreign citizens in this process are considered. Some methodical recommendations of training on engineering and technical profile are given from the accumulated experience of the preparatory department for foreign citizens of the Higher School of Economics.
Continuing professional development and participation in lifelong learning are not only important, but necessary conditions of successful engineering career. The need for skill upgrade occurs due to the inadequate level of competence received by engineers during university studies, and due to the rapid technological development and socio-economic transformations. Successful participation in continuing education requires not only cognitive abilities, but also self-interest, awareness of the importance of advanced training. The data of the specialized survey (n=880) were analyzed to investigate the level of involvement of young Russian engineers (up to 40 years) in obtaining additional professional education, as well as the relevance of various formats of advanced training and the most common educational strategies. Data on engineers are supplemented with information about the perceptions of potential employers (90 organizations in the field of robotics). Most young engineers feel some skills shortage and the need for additional training. The employers’ opinion confirms the existence of discrepancies between the existing and required level of engineering competencies and the high importance of further training. However, the active participation in lifelong learning is currently common not for all Russian engineers: a third of them (32.7 %) have not received additional education in the past three years. Additional training aimed at obtaining managerial skills, as well as the format of internships are currently not widespread. Those engineers who already feel the lack of professional knowledge and consciously participate in advanced training, strive not only to upgrade their field-specific competencies, but also to improve their digital and language skills. Obtaining a doctorate degree as a tool for career advancement was considered by every fifth (21.7 %) young engineer; the interest in obtaining a degree decreases with aging.
Implementation of information communication technologies, which accelerate the process of collection, accumulation, storage, processing and transmission of educational information, into higher education syllabus is critical nowadays. The given article puts forward the issues of blended learning and describes the Web based teaching model which has been successfully tested to be used in the system of higher education as the foundation of preparing soft ware engineers. As the development of technologies and appearance of various educational platforms are accelerating it is pivotal for the universities to enter into tough competition and create appealing educational tracks for contemporary language learners. The study aims to justify the effectiveness of the suggested model by thoroughly examining the pros and cons of different types of mixed teaching as opposed to traditional classroom education. This paper involves studies on the experimental implementation of the suggested wiki-based model in English teaching experience among 100 NRU HSE Nizhniy Novgorod branch learners where experimental use of wiki has proven to be a means of improving writing and speaking skills as well as developing the motivation of learners, selftracking progress system and personalized learning.
This article focuses on key skills of researchers and engineers in the field of robotics, which are demanded by employers in Russia and in the world. Information about demanded skills is collected using two methods: the text-mining analysis of open-access vacancies in the field of robotics both in Russia and abroad, and in-depth interviews with Russian employers. Lists of the most demanded skills in Russia and abroad coincide. Russian specifics are the importance of English language proficiency and knowledge of national standards for technical documentation.
In article the method of calculation of total estimates when studying the course "Algorithmization of Calculations" in MIEM of A.N. Tikhonov is described by Higher School of Economics National Research University. The formula considers different types of control of digestion of material. The question of a ratio of estimates for different types of works in the saved-up assessment is analyzed.
The paper considers issues of vocational education and training for highly qualified personnel which knowledge and skills allow them working for high-tech industries. Focus is put on the analysis of human relation policy of organizations aimed at preventing a shortage of highly skilled engineers who should implement technological innovations. The paper highlights the potential of Foresight methodology, through which the needs of organizations in new competencies, the future skills shortage and the "white spots" in professional training can be identified.
