"A young specialist becomes a good teacher, first of all,
thanks to the atmosphere of creative work of the teaching staff...”
V. O. Sukhomlynsky


  It's been a long time since we met face-to-face with our teaching staff, we missed each other and for live communication. And now, finally, this opportunity has appeared. Having started the academic year, we found an opportunity to return to the issue of improving the pedagogical skills of our young teachers. After all, we have no right to stop, the time is difficult, we need to work with young people, be a support for students.

  Therefore, on September 13, 2023, at the initiative of the rector Stanislav Nikolaenko teachers of the University, whose experience of scientific and pedagogical work does not exceed three years, turned into students for several hours: they sat down at their desks and in the framework of "School of pedagogical excellence" which has been operating for several years, and were mastering the basics of pedagogical skills.

  Welcoming school students, rector of NULES of Ukraine, academician of the National Academy of Pedagogical Sciences of Ukraine, academician of the National Academy of Agrarian Sciences of Ukraine, doctor of pedagogical sciences, Professor of the department of pedagogy Stanislav Nikolaenko presented the program of the event and drew attention to its relevance and timeliness for young teachers, because most of them do not have a teacher's education.

  The rector also noted that other universities do not train teachers for teaching activities. Our younger generation of teachers has the opportunity to acquire knowledge on teaching methods and improve their pedagogical skills.

  Stanislav Mykolayovych called on the participants of the seminar to actively use the opportunity to influence his topics.
