How is distance education applied at the faculty of second professional education?
Here, learning using distance learning technologies is gaining momentum. Here the specificity that we are talking about is expressed – this is an extramural form of education, these are adults who have a certain job, and distance learning gives them the opportunity to receive the entire volume of knowledge in a freer schedule.
The faculty is already attended by adults who are interested in improving and acquiring new qualifications. For them, training is not only gaining knowledge, it is the prospect of professional and career growth, effective employment. To be successful, you need to be a specialist in various fields: you need management skills, economic and legal knowledge. Therefore, our students have a higher motivation to study, respectively, it is easier for them to organize themselves for independent study.
The students of the faculty are not only yesterday’s graduates, but also people who have already taken place in their profession – representatives of state and municipal authorities, heads of structural divisions, military personnel. The faculty has implemented an individual approach and development at the faculty of distance learning technologies. The official activity of many of them does not always allow starting the session on time. It is precisely distance technology that allows you to set a more flexible, individual schedule.
At the moment, the faculty has 1124 students.
