The volume contains selected, peer-reviewed papers from the 5th International Forum on Teacher Education (IFTE 2019), 29-31 May, 2019, Kazan Federal University, Russia.
For the fifth year in a row, the Institute of Psychology and Education at the KFU at the highest level has organized a traditional forum for representatives of the education sector from around the world.
This year representatives of the universities of Oxford, Dublin, and others took the floor at the forum. In total, the forum was attended by scientists from 140 Russian and 60 foreign universities from more than 30 countries.
The significance of the International Forum on Pedagogical Education was quite capaciously revealed by the rector of KFU Ilshat Gafurov, stressing that in an environment where teacher’s professionalism is an extraordinarily important issue for educational systems in almost all countries of the world: “Our forum is primarily a science platform where we can to study advanced domestic and international experience, to present our own models of pedagogical education, which we have been successfully developing at KFU since 2011 ”.
Attention to pedagogy, the allocation of this field of knowledge as a priority direction for the development of KFU, decent funding, and proper goal-setting led the Institute of Psychology and Education to world leaders.
The importance of the International Forum on Teacher Education was also noted at the state level: the Forum was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Tatarstan, the Russian Academy of Education, and the international associations of pedagogical education research.
