Baeva L. V. Project Learning in the Modern Tertiary Institution: An Experience in the Application of CDIO Standards for Students Training in the Social and Humanities Fields

(Astrakhan State University)

Abstract ♦ The Worldwide CDIO Initiative was originally adopted by some engineering institutions of higher education. Nowadays in the framework of the Worldwide CDIO Initiative there are more than 100 tertiary institutions located in many corners of the world. CDIO is a trademarked initialism for “Conceive — Design — Implement — Operate”. Thus, it implicates that in the basis of this philosophy of teaching there is the idea to develop students’ skills for engineering creativity and understanding of real processes and needs of modern production. However, this idea of training has turned out to be effective for modern classical universities in general. The application of the system implies a significant role of students’ participation in the production process, and contributes to the development of their new ideas, products and systems from the original conception to the management of their own projects. The purpose of the article is to present an experience of the application of CDIO standards approved at Astrakhan State University in the training of students in the social and humanities fields. A practice-oriented organization of educational process for modern university is topical both in the context of the transition to the competence-based learning model at large, and also for the regulation of educational process in applied bachelor’s degree courses. The application of CDIO standards has allowed the solution of a wide range of the following important tasks: the integration of disciplines and competences during bachelor’s training; the increase of students’ activity and interest in the results of learning through involvement in team projects; the instruction of participants involved in project activities in matters of communication skills and leadership; the achievement of rapprochement between education and production; the development of professional competences and ethics among students through the solution of real socially oriented tasks and problems.

Keywords: CDIO, project training, integrated curriculum, competences, information culture
