European vectors of science education are aimed at formation not only just a teacher who is able to easily adapt to rapidly changing conditions but a professional researcher capable of creative and transformative activities of biomedical practice.
Modern knowledge of microbiology in the system of professional training of future bachelors of natural sciences is an effective resource for the formation and development of students’ research competence. On their assimilation by a future teacher of natural sciences depends the degree of its readiness for practical activity, that based primarily on the availability of integrative and biomedical professionally directed knowledge, including in microbiology.
Proceeding from this, the particular value in the professional and pedagogical training of future bachelors of natural sciences are the microbiological knowledge as a modern branch of biology, as well as the basis for the formation of subject competence in the process of teaching the microorganism knowledge system in the integrated school course «Natural Sciences».
Bachelor of Natural Sciences; Research Competence; Disciplines of the Biomedical Cycle
The integration of the educational systems of civilized countries into the European educational society actualizes the process of modernizing the educational content of the younger generation and Ukraine at all its levels. One of the ways to update the content of education in the plane of taking into account the modern needs of the Ukrainian society is to orientate the educational programs towards the formation of students’ key competencies and create mechanisms for their acquisition by students. The analysis of scientific publications and educational practices suggest that it is the integration in the practical plane of the active implementation of the competency-based approach that focuses on the effectiveness of the educational strategy as well as the use of its value potential that characterizes the innovations of successful education systems. And now, society’s demands for a modern comprehensive school and its competitiveness in the light of the imperative of a single world educational space are becoming increasingly stronger. The aforementioned actualizes the corresponding transformations of the content and approaches to the professional training of the future teacher, teacher of the new formation. In this regard, we emphasize that it is research competence as the most important component of the professionalism of the future teacher of Natural Sciences that acquires special urgency. Moreover, the practice-oriented vector of development of higher pedagogical education has especially increased attention to this issue. First of all, this is due to the defining role of the teacher’s personality in the process of implementing new strategies for school science education.
