Abstract: The subject of the study is enlightenment as a factor in the formation of innovative strategies and mechanisms for the development of interstate educational space (by the example of the CIS). The object of research was the methodological foundations of innovative strategies and mechanisms for the development of the Commonwealth educational space. The problem of the development of the general educational space is considered in the perspective of the development of its subjects (single and group) through enlightenment. Enlightenment activities in the face of increasing risks of destroying the scientific picture of the world, extremism practices at the level of the individual and social ties, the use of acute ethnic problems by destructive forces are perceived today as an innovation resource of the socio-cultural sphere. The return to enlightenment activities must be based on an understanding of the specifics of the modern diversity that is being implemented in the CIS countries. It must be adequate to the practice of sociality that takes place in different states. The analysis of special literature, modern social and political discourse, effective enlightenment practices, as well as questionnaires and interviewing of members of the enlightenment communities has revealed the conditions for organizing an enlightenment dialogue among the cultures of the Commonwealth. Such are the obligatory event inclusion in the semantic field of a different culture prior to the beginning of interaction, the use of the model of non-formal education, taking into account the specifics of the regional socio-cultural situation. This allows to increase the effectiveness of international projects by eliminating risks in the field of intercultural communication.

Gel'man V.Ya. - Optimization of learning rate in group education pp. 36-43


Abstract: The subject of this research is the group education. Separation of students into groups based on the rare of learning challenges the educator with a choice of the tempo of teaching. Faster rate of resenting the curriculum than the individual’s ability to process it leads to some gaps in retention of information. The level of information loss depends on both, the speed at which the material is presented, as well as the type of the academic discipline. The article sets out to determine the optimal speed for teaching of group education. It is demonstrated that the optimal index of rate of presentation of information is not fixed; it depends on the type of allocation of ability to retain knowledge, the spread of students in the group based on the rate of learning, as well as the index of minimal rate of information retention. The greater the spread of rate of information retention in the group and the lower the index of learning of the weakest student, the closer to the median index of speed of information retention is the optimal rate of delivery of the learning material; while the lower the spread and higher the rate of information retention of the weakest student, the greater the rate of delivery of the material must cover the students, attempting to fully cover all students within group.

Abstract: The subject of the research is to study the process of teaching the basic discipline “Numerical Methods” to the students of mathematics. The paper provides the main approaches to teaching of numerical methods. The hypothesis is made that motivation to learning the discipline, necessary time for examination and understanding of material of the course depends on the level of development of numerical cognition. The authors clarify the notion of "numerical cognition" as a cognitive process, determine the abilities needed to develop the numerical cognition of students, as well as propose tools for organizing the learning process. Methods of system dynamics and dynamic visualization are used for organizing the educational activity. As the key means, the authors also review the mental maps and animation, which from the perspective of information approach represent most efficient tool for visualization of information. The main conclusion of the conducted research lies in the fact that the suggested methods and means significantly affect the development of identified components of numerical cognition of students, and therefore, the successful studying of the course “Numerical Methods”. This has been confirmed by the pedagogical experiment carried out in the Siberian Federal University.
Goryan E.V. - Socratic Method in the legal clinical education: problems and prospects of application pp. 102-113


Abstract: The author examines the problems and prospects of application of the Socratic Method in legal clinical education. Legal clinical education plays an important role in professional training of lawyer, imparting practical skills to the use of theoretical knowledge in practical activity. Lack of continuity in methodological support of the educational activity in Russia results in the low practice-oriented outcome of legal training of the graduates. The implementation of Socratic Method allows formulating the required by the academic standard cultural and professional competencies. The author underlines the need for a qualitative methodological support of the legal clinical education. Socratic Method, used by the leading legal schools of the world, obtains a new meaning due to scientific technical progress and constant changes in the legal systems: the knowledge outdate within the year or several month; thus, legal education under the circumstances faces the task of not just “imparting” the knowledge onto minds of the students, but rather the skills for accumulating the new knowledge, as well critical thinking skills. The problems of implementation of the Socratic Method consist in difficulties of subjective and objective character. In first case, it implies the absence of the system of advanced methodological training of educators working in legal clinical education. In second case, it is the unpreparedness of students to independent thinking, orientation towards the opinion of educators, inability to defend their point of view, and lack of critical thinking skills. In the long term, there is a need to become familiar with the leading methodological practices of the foreign legal schools, as well as implement them into the system of Russian legal clinical education, taking into account its specificity.
