P. Astafieva, PSNIU, Moscow State Universit M.V. Lomonosov, the Institute of Information and Computing Technologies, representatives of universities of Kazakhstan, as well as heads of structural units, faculty and doctoral students attended the conference.
At the beginning of the event, took place the grand opening of the "Pedagogical STEM-Park" based on KazNPU named after. Abai. At the opening of the conference, Rector Takir Balykbaev congratulated participants on the upcoming significant date of the 90th anniversary of the university, spoke about the achievements and high potential of KazNPU named after Abai, which is the leading scientific and educational center in the field of pedagogy in Kazakhstan.
Noting the relevance of the topic of the conference, the rector emphasized: “Kazakh National Pedagogical University named after Abai is the main center of educational and methodological support for the training of pedagogical personnel in the countr We have begun to implement a new model of teaching programs for pedagogical specialties, prepared jointly with foreign partners. Within the framework of the conference, planned to discuss ways to implement the Digital Kazakhstan program and analyze the possibilities of using the advantages of digitalization, as well as to summarize domestic and foreign experience in introducing IT technologies into the educational processes of universities, developing and improving the quality of the staff of educational organizations. Digitalization has great potential to completely change the methodology and every stage in the learning process. Especially in the field of higher education, where online courses, trainings and innovative methods of obtaining knowledge are already in great demand.
A detailed study of the training programs is advisable, including the development of laboratory work for the above courses and other documents necessary for the successful implementation of this training course. Relevant research carried out by the international scientific laboratory of the problems of informatization of education and educational technologies functioning at KazNPU and the Department of Informatics and Informatization of Education.
Professor Tamagawa University Seiji Moriya (Japan), Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Ph.D., Professor of the Omsk State Pedagogical University Mikhail Lapchik, Corresponding Member.
