Since March 20, the first week of the educational and scientific process has passed for graduate students of the first year of study from the People’s Republic of China.
It should be recalled that within the framework of expanding international cooperation in November 2022, 40 graduate students from the PRC were enrolled in full-time (full-time) education, in such specialties as: 011 “Educational, pedagogical sciences”, 073 “Management”, 075 “Marketing”, 122 “Computer Science” and 181 “Food Technologies”. During March 20-25, graduate students actively joined the classes, because for them it is an opportunity to learn new content and increase their existing knowledge. The beginning of the training turned out to be quite eventful, because future doctors of philosophy began their 2nd semester with lectures in such disciplines as: foreign (Ukrainian) language for professional purposes, pedagogy and management of higher education institutions, philosophy of science. The Department of Postgraduate Studies has formed and agreed with all NNPs a schedule of classes (in a remote format).
It should be noted that the educational process of postgraduate studies at NUBiP of Ukraine opens up for graduate students of the PRC not only the opportunity to gain new knowledge and experience of leading professors of the University, but also to learn a new Ukrainian language for themselves under the guidance of associate professors Nina Stepanenko and Natalia Adamchuk. It is in Ukrainian that they will defend the results of their dissertation research in the future.
Special attention should be paid to the lectures of the disciplines “Pedagogy and Management of Educational Institutions” and “Philosophy of Science”. Professor of the Department of Pedagogy Natalia Grechanyk already during the first lecture with applicants of the PRC presented the basic concepts of pedagogical science and features of the concept of “competencies”, tried to hold a discussion with graduate students to determine the differences in their views (with the participation of the coordinator and translator).
