Recursive Model of a Methodical Competency Formation of a High School Teacher in the Context of Competency-Based Education

International Education Studies, v8 n2 p142-150 2015
The present study examines the professional development problems of a high school teacher. A high school teacher is both a scientist and a teacher. Teaching and research activities are integrated by using methodical activity. Methodical competency of a teacher is defined as a basis in the context of Competence-based Education. The methodical competency building model is founded upon recursion. Recursion, a technique based on consistent reduction of a complex problem used to solve a set of "simpler problems" of the same class and obtaining on this basis the solution to the original problem, allows the teacher to build an individual route to form and develop methodical competency. The teacher performs different types of methodical activities (educational and methodical, scientific and methodical, organizational and methodical, and examination and methodical activities) in "non-linear" way, as well as assimilates the corresponding methodical roles (engineer, researcher, expert, manager, and teachers' coach). The beginning of the assimilation of one role is accomplishment and/or continuation of the other role. Thus, the methodical competency structures, recursively referencing to each other, are developed out of themselves.
