The university will conduct advanced training courses for teachers from the regions.
On October 29 2021 at KazNPU named after Abay, was organized a round table as part of advanced training courses for management of small-scale schools on the topic "Organization and management of the educational process in the SCS", reports Vecher.kz.
The initiative to conduct these courses belongs to the leadership of our university, and this choice is not accidental. The program is aimed at providing the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills in designing organizational and managerial activities, the educational process in the conditions of the SCS in accordance with the innovative format of the main directions of development of education and regulatory legal acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the conditions of the updated content of secondary education.
The event was attended by the Rector of the University Darkhan Bilyalov, Director of the Department of Academic Affairs Khairulla Zhanbekov, curators of the courses Amangul Orakova, Meruert Beldenbaeva, Tatyana Kornilova and 163 directors of small-scale schools from 9 cities and 12 regions of Kazakhstan.
In his speech, the rector of KazNPU noted the importance of such courses for the heads of small-scale schools, which are most often located in remote areas of the country, not always equipped with modern equipment and innovative technologies for teaching and educating pupils. Other problems only been exacerbated by the pandemic.
“According to statistical data for the 2019-2020 academic year, 2,833 small-scale schools functioned in Kazakhstan. They do not have parallel classes, the contingent of pupils is small, and students from several classes often combined into one class-set. This is one of the features of the Kazakh education infrastructure. We analyzed international comparative studies (TALIS, PISA, ICILS) and national student assessment systems (UNT, EAEA) and came to the disappointing conclusion that there is still a large gap in the quality of education between rural and urban schools,” said D.N. Bilyalov. He noted that KazNPU named after Abai - the country's leading pedagogical university, decided to carry out systematic work to provide methodological support to small-scale schools and these courses are one such measure.
Within the framework of the round table considered the issues of an acute shortage of teachers in the SCS, methodological assistance to their directors and teachers, as well as their social support. The following proposals have been mentioned: targeted sending young specialists (for practice, for working out grants, etc.); conduct free courses for teachers on subjects (on planning, instructional design, writing assessment criteria, writing assignments for COP and CEP, etc.), as well as consultations on the practical aspects of the educational process in such schools.
At the end of the event, representatives of small-scale schools appreciated the university administration for organizing special advanced training courses, providing an opportunity to discuss the problems of small-scale schools and finding ways to solve them.01.11.2021 Source: vecher.kz
