Obsuzdajutsja metodologiceskie problemy pedagogiki (Discussion of the Methodological Problems of Science of Education).
Sovetskaja pedagogika, Moscow, n3,4,6 1969
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a collective report of discussions held by the Soviet Academy of Pedagogical Sciences on the methodological problems of the science of education. The task of the meeting was to evaluate and analyze the current status of the question, to define the basic methodological problems needing to be treated in the near future, to analyze the experience gained in the application of modern methods to educational research, and to suggest ways of improving them. The tone of the discussion was set by the first paper which offered the framework of dialectical materialism as the basis for scientific investigation of educational phenomena. It was admitted that many of the problems raised by educational theory and methodology had yet to be solved by the experts. The Communist system of upbringing was stressed as the key to character building, for it supposedly paralleled scientific social and biological evolution. Soviet educational theory attaches the utmost importance to the study of the teacher's experiences. Sex education, heredity vs. environment, instructional effectiveness, and source study were among the topics discussed. (Author/GDB)
