Hadzhiiliev, Vassil Stefanov; Dobreva, Zhaneta Stoykova
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 6 p756-766 2011
The development of universities as independent scientific centers determines their mission to incorporate the most modern achievements of science into the students' practical training. This research on the attitudes of the participants in this process towards the use of modern practices encompasses both trainers and students, and it consists of two studies. The contemporary education process is very complex and places the educators in situations which require the application of new approaches. The result of the study on the attitudes of the educators towards using modern practices in students' training shows the upsides and downsides of this process, as well as the mastery of the didactic art to apply the above-mentioned components of the education process to the needed extent. On the other hand, as subjects of cognitive activity, students are extremely sensitive to the effect of the new, the scientific discoveries and their application in the students' practice. The students' motivations for learning about the modern practices and their use in their future professional activity are significantly higher than their motivation for acquiring the classical fundamental knowledge included in academic study programs.
