Purpose of the study: The purpose of this study to develop a model for the implementation of a modular approach to the formation of competencies of bachelors of pedagogical education and experimentally prove its effectiveness in the practice of professional training of students - future teachers.
Methodology: Based on the diagnostic tools for B. Bloom's taxonomy in the author's modification, the levels of formation for each competency (n=19) identified for research work in the aspect of advanced (excellent), basic (good) and threshold (satisfactory) indicators were determined. Monitoring was carried out according to activity and reflective indicator. The study participants were students studying at the bachelor's degree in the direction of “Education and pedagogical sciences” (n=87). The authors used the SPSS20 program to analyze the student's t-test.
Main Findings: The pedagogical experiment showed the reliability of a larger number of students of the experimental group, compared with the control group, in terms of the high - advanced level of formation of their average competencies (p<0.01). The implementation of the modular approach with the highest significance (p<0.01) had an impact on students' ability to analyze the main stages and patterns of historical development for the formation of patriotism and civic position. Using the author’s curriculum, the ability to solve the problems of upbringing and spiritual and moral development of students in educational and extracurricular activities significantly increased (p<0.01) among students.
Applications of this study: The results of the experiment will be of interest to a wide circle of students and specialists in the field of pedagogical science.
Novelty of this study: The practical implementation of the author’s curriculum on the basis of a modular approach to the formation of competencies at the levels of “knowledge - skill - skill - action” in the system “basic academic disciplines - varied subjects - educational practice - state certification” has made it possible to increase the efficiency of the educational process.
