At the beginning of the new century, education of students faces an ambitious task, namely to realize the vision in which an individuals and institutions, all around the world, appreciate learning, not only as means of accomplishing an aim, but as an aim itself. To pursue the realization of that aim, Department for Educational and Psychological Training at Faculty of Arts in Osijek, has organized an international scientific seminar on Modern Teaching. Teaching is the central topic of the seminar, with emphasis on communication in teaching process, different approaches to the lesson plans, lesson realization and lesson evaluation. All aspects of educational system have been taken into consideration: pre-school education, primary school, secondary school and undergraduate university education. Partly, the works presented here have been directed towards theoretical analysis, and partly towards empirical approach. Collected papers give a survey on a nine-year primary school system in The Republic of Slovenia, as well as a comment on the changes that were brought along by the new educational system in Slovenia. This Collection of papers (further in the text--Collection) also deals with the issues of students' satisfaction with their studies and students' study interests. There is also a mention of the influence of constructivism, a scientific approach in pedagogy, on education of pre-school teachers. Communication in teaching process has been examined, as well as the realistic situation in primary schools. Modern education requires students' active participation in the educational process, and Collection attempts to present the realistic situation in our schools. Theory and practice in teachers' education have also been presented here. Collection points to the necessity of a practical training in the education of future teachers and to the importance of keeping the pace with modern trends in their education. Modern teaching includes all factors of education; therefore Collection examines the importance of cooperation between parents and teachers. What is also stressed here is the irreplaceable role of teachers and parents in the upbringing process. Children's rights are foundation of modern teaching, and they have become one of the everyday-school problems. One of the tasks of the modern education is to develop intercultural awareness, tolerance and prevention of discrimination, stereotypes and prejudices. Modern teaching brings along different changes and challenges, and Collection demonstrates how it influences children's value system. Another important issue mentioned in Collection is the necessity of setting precise evaluation standards for all aspects of educational activities. Teaching mathematics, as well as other natural sciences, particularly requires the modernization of education of its teachers and introduction of the new teaching technologies. Art education is still an important part of education. The influence of gender in development of artistic skills has been also presented here.
