Introduction

Significant changes affecting absolutely all spheres of life are so intense and rapid that the system of secondary and higher vocational education has lagged behind on competence issues and no longer able to solve the problem of specialist training in any field of professional activity. It mainly refers to workers in the sphere of general and higher education, first and foremost - to teachers. The teacher does not just have to keep up with advances in science, technology and information, but also advance the quality of education and implement this progress in his professional growth.

  • Pedagogical Aspect: Didactic system of continuous pedagogical education, on the one hand, should reflect all the typical components of educational process: objectives, contents, and methods, organizational forms, learning tools, based on the scientific achievements of domestic and foreign pedagogy. On the other hand, it should be focused on modern educational innovations in its essential characteristics: innovation as an imperative and system characteristics, objective and principle, and the means, forms and methods of teaching. Only with such a multi-dimensional realization of didactic innovation system we can create preconditions for “nurturing” of the teacher as a creative person with a particular style of pedagogical activity and thinking. In the construction of didactic system of continuous pedagogical education, combines the traditional with the innovative, it is important to find a combination of variant and invariant components of the system as an organic relationship which can provide teachers with continual science-based and innovation-oriented training and professional development.

Let us specify some definitions.
