New courses

An important component of the project "MoPED - Modernization of Pedagogical Higher Education by Innovative Teaching Instruments" is the development of new teaching materials on teaching methods STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) subjects, as well as the creation and accreditation of 18 new courses for bachelor's or master's degree programs in all Ukrainian pedagogical universities participating in the project.

Taras Shevchenko National University of Luhansk took an active part in the discussion and development of a new concept of these courses, features of methodological and technological design of ICR required for the implementation of these courses

 Taras Shevchenko National University of Luhansk develop and implement the following courses:

Methodology of Using Digital Technologies in School Education/ Language of instruction: English – Bachelor, 014 Secondary education (mathematics).(see concept , concept in Ukrainian and handbook)

The academic course  «Using digital technologies to support learning and teaching in school» provides the conditions for preparing future teachers to use digital technologies of teaching at school and creates opportunity for pedagogical creativity. The peculiarity of the course is practical orientation, creation of learning content, use of a business game for modeling pedagogical situations and evaluation of the developed methodology. The educational content of the course contains material from several main topics: methodology for designing the e-learning content; methodology of using digital tools in the school's educational process; organization of digital and blended learning; working with computer-based e-learning platforms; organization of communication and collaboration in e-learning environments, connectivism in educatinal technologies; modern services for organizing the digital educational environment at the school; methods and technologies for evaluating e-learning tools; teacher's Tools for E-Learning Quality Assurance - Moodle, Google, Microsoft and others.

Gamification in the educational process of school / Language of instruction: Ukrainian - Master, 014 Secondary education (Informatics), 014 Secondary education (mathematics), Master, 014 Secondary education (Physics).(see concept, concept English and handbook)

The task of the course "Gamification in the educational process of school" is to prepare students for the practical use of game technology (computer, quest technology, etc.) in the educational process of secondary school. Learning experience is organized into a series of lectures, practical work (training), laboratory classes and group work. In addition to these forms of activity, the independent work of the study is important for the effectiveness of learning, namely the development of methodological materials, instructions and software for use in the educational process of the school. A feature of training is also the involvement of interactive gamification technologies, the creation of an interactive learning environment. The content of the course has the following priorities: didactic game and methods of its development and conduct during the lesson; development and use of quests, age features of using the game in the educational process, pedagogical and digital tools of the teacher for hemification. Software used: Scratch, Alice, etc.

 A quality commission has been set up at the university to implement these courses and monitor their quality. Criteria for assessing the quality of new courses have been developed. The Quality Commission reviewed the proposed courses and recommended them for implementation In order to increase the efficiency of project implementation and analysis of the quality of prepared materials, the Quality Commission of Taras Shevchenko Lviv National University in December 2020 re-examined and analyzed all developed materials and recommended them for implementation in the educational process. (protocol 4 and 5

 Profile departments have developed new educational programs and included new courses. The decision of the Academic Council of the University approved new educational programs.
