Environmental education as a basic component of the technosphere employees’ biospherically compatible activity. Course Director : Timonova Е. Т., associate Professor, VSTU Other team members: Grechanikov A.V., associate Professor, VSTU Shumak V.V., associate Professor, PolesSU, Kovaleva O.V., associate Professor, GSU
Teachers of environmental disciplines in vocational schools/ colleges / universities; teachers of social and humanitarian, general professional and special disciplines who wish to improve their knowledge or discuss - issues on the problems of interaction between society and nature, - the possibility of introducing environmental knowledge in their teaching courses, - modern methods and didactics of teaching environmental sciences; undergraduates
General environmental education: the course is offered to discuss the evolution of interactions between human society and nature, modern problems of interaction in the system "man-technology-environment", the possibilities biospherically compatible human activities for sustainable development. Special professional-scientific education: the course will cover modern aspects of the development of professionally oriented environmental education, practice-oriented training Institute of the future specialists, modern technologies of organization of educational process. Specific communication with professional activities: the course will be devoted to managing impacts of industrial enterprises on the environment, create waste (resource saving) production, product design, taking into account environmental requirements.
To know, to understand and evaluate environmental problems and prospects of human interaction with nature, trends in the development of environmental education from the standpoint of ecocentric approach; to apply modern practice-oriented learning technologies in the study of environmental disciplines; o organize educational process, which formed the basis for the expansion of knowledge about the world and helped students to make better decisions in the future professional activity. С ourse duration: the total number of hours – 72 classroom work – 48 hours independent work –24 hours credits – 2,4
ExpertiseMethodological and didactic competence Interdisciplinary competence, social competence Know the theoretical foundations of co-evolution of nature and society, the principle of harmonization between man and nature Use a systematic approach when considering issues of human interaction with nature Justify the need to address environmental issues based on the principle of bio- sferical compatibility Organize the educational process in accordance with modern trends in the development of relations in the system "man-nature“ Use methodical-didactic materials to form a view about the causes of the present ecological crisis and the strategies to overcome it Demonstrate the features and benefits of biospherically compatible human activities Develop recommendations for the inclusion of the dialectic relationship between man and nature in the socio-economic and humanitarian courses Consider environmental issues in relation to future careers of students Explain the complex nature of environmental problems and their possible solutions by combining the efforts of many professionals

Course Director: Grechanikov A.V., Associate Professor, VSTU Other team members: Timonova E.T., Associate Professor, VSTU Druk V.Y., Associate Professor, PolesSU, Kovaleva O.V., Associate Professor GSU Improving of environmental education of engineering students on the basis of a practice-oriented approach
Teachers of colleges, professional secondary schools and universities, teachers of humanities and technical disciplines, colleagues who would like to discuss aspects dedicated to didactics of disciplines in the concept of ecological education
General environmental education: the course will be the analysis of the state of environment in the Republic of Belarus, the legal framework for environmental protection and environmental education, structure, stages and criteria ecocentric environmental consciousness. Special vocational scientific education: the course covers modern methods and technologies of teaching used in the study of environmental disciplines, particular attention will be paid to the possibilities of the implementation of practice-oriented teaching methods, allowing to provide a close connection between education and real life. The specific link with the professional activity: the refresher course will enable the target groups to use the knowledge gained during the training of specialists based on the integration of knowledge about the environment and the subject of professional training and in the training of professionals, whose activities are not directly related to planning and environmental management, but nevertheless directly or indirectly exerts a significant influence
To be able to teach special disciplines methodically and didactically correctly in the paradigm of environmental ecocentric consciousness based on practice-oriented approach С ourse duration: the total number of hours – 72 classroom work – 60 hours independent work – 12 hours credits – 2,4
ExpertiseMethodological and didactic competence Interdisciplinary competence, social competence Identify patterns of interaction between nature and society, from the standpoint of ecocentrism Explain the laws and principles of didactics from the perspective of ecocentrism Know the principles and methods of formation of ecological ecocentricconsciousness Differentiate and choose the methods and techniques of training used in the study of environmental disciplines Analyze and assess approaches to the solution of educational problems on the choice of specific forms and methods of training with respect to various criteria Prepare methodological and didactic materials on the topics of the course Develop training sessions based on the didactic principles Relate objectives, forms and methods of training in the design of the training sessions. Use the methods of assessment and feedback in teaching activities Use the principle of a multidisciplinary approach, involving the introduction of relevant amendments to the content of all subjects studied. Develop and propose options for approaches to problem solving methods of teaching special disciplines. Apply special discussion rules under simulated operating conditions. Solve complex environmental and technical issues in the context of work situations
