USING SCIENTIFIC E-CONFERENCES FOR THE RESEARCH COMPETENCE DEVELOPMENT: STUDENTS’ POINT OF VIEW
The article discusses the methodology of using a scientific electronic conference for the development of research competence of university students. A model of the use of a scientific electronic conference for the development of students' research competence was developed. It includes the following components: purpose, procedural, content-technological, diagnostic. It is proposed to use a process approach for the development of research competence through electronic scientific conferences. The purpose, activities, means, forms, methods and research skills that will be formed as a result of each process were determined. The system of indicators was developed to determine the level of research competence for such constituents as: methodology, information search, problem solving, quantitative analysis and communication. The types of activities occurring at each stage of the process are determined, in particular, the means and electronic content used for their implementation, the forms and methods of efficient use of electronic means, competences that are formed during the implementation of the model. Stages of students’ preparation for and participation in an electronic conference in cooperation with lecturers and experts (reviewers) that will form not only the research competence of students, but also their digital competence (digital literacy) are presented. The efficiency of using scientific electronic conferences as an instrument for the development of students' research competence has been proved. In particular, the results of the student survey on the development of constituents of research competence are presented. The students of the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine and Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University who have an intermediate and high level of research competence have noted the positive impact of lead-up and participation in scientific e-conferences on the development of students’ research competence.
