Abstract

The article studies the problem of modernizing the methods and forms of organizing Master's degree studies using the andragogical approach. The objective of the article is to highlight the results of a pedagogical experiment on the implementation of an andragogical approach during the professional training of applicants for the Master's (second-cycle) level of higher education, which is aimed at forming their personality as andragogues. Special emphasis is laid upon the analysis of the key provisions of the draft law of Ukraine “On Adult Education”, which regards the personality of the educational process organizer as a comprehensively knowledgeable and professionally competent andragogue, able to transform significantly the context of didactic relations in the educational services system by replacing the passive role of students as “objects for pedagogical impact” with their new status of active and motivated subjects of their own intellectual and creative development and professional and personal growth. The conducted research has shown that the purpose of the andragogical approach implementation to the professional training of Master's degree holders is to design such a higher education institution with a developmental educational and scientific environment, which is based on subject-subject didactic interaction to encourage applicants to act in accordance with the current or prospective educational situation. To achieve this, subjects who are engaged in professional and pedagogical activities in teaching academic disciplines should acquire the andragogue qualities through gaining proficiency in andragogical culture to be able to perform the role functions of a consultant, tutor, mentor, supervisor, moderator, facilitator, mediator, coach, and adviser. The research has proved that the vast majority of Master's degree graduates (79%) are interested in gaining proficiency in these andragogue functional roles. The results of the experiment have found out that the introduction of an andragogical approach in the professional training of higher education applicants encourages the development of their andragogical culture at high (32%), medium (44%), and low (24%) levels.
