Trends in Practical Undergraduate Training of Future Primary School Teachers

Abstract

The aim of the paper is to outline the development and current trends in practical aspects of undergraduate training of future primary school teachers. The research is based on the requirements of schools which need thoroughly trained students prepared for practical educational work. For a long time, university education has primarily focused on teaching theoretical knowledge without practical applications. Currently, the authors of the present paper aim to implement the “lesson study” method in practical teacher training courses in universities. According to this method, the system of practical training involves several actors – supervisor (expert from university), teacher trainer (expert from elementary school), and a group of students. The paper presents an analysis of practical educational requirements for the implementation of this method.
The paper is a partial outcome of the project Development of the concept of undergraduate training of primary school teachers with an emphasis on communication competences.
