Ucebnyj process v sovetskoj vyssej skole (The Process of Instruction in Soviet Higher Education).
Zinov'ev, S. I.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a book intended for research students and new teachers in higher educational establishments. Discussion of important problems of the theory of instruction in higher schools is followed by suggestions for solving problems and for further research. The reader is cautioned against ready-made, dogmatic attitudes on the subject, and stress is laid on the importance of creative approaches in education. Eight principles are laid down for the process of instruction: (1) instruction must be inspired by Marxist-Leninist ideology; (2) theory must be combined with practice and practical experience with learning; (3) specialists must be trained systematically and consistently; (4) students must be trained to adopt a conscious, active, and independent approach to study; (5) students must learn to combine individual study with group work; (6) abstract reasoning must be combined with concrete demonstration; (7) knowledge must be thoroughly assimilated; and (8) scientific knowledge must be made accessible. The book concludes with discussions of correspondence courses, programmed instruction, industrial practices, and teaching specialized subjects. (Author/GDB)
