Model of integrated teaching management core courses in a foreign language using ICT
The paper purpose is to reveal the problem of future managers teaching and to describe the developed model of the integrated teaching of management core courses and foreign languages using ICT. The following theoretical and empiric methods have been used in the research: critical analysis of resources, current programs, education regulations, manuals; method of observation, questioning of students and professors to reveal their attitude to different aspects of training for business communication in a foreign language at the higher school, systematic and synthesis methods, education experiment. The object of the study is the process of integrated teaching of professional management disciplines in English using ICT. The subject of the study is the technology of integrated building of professional and foreign language communicative competences using ICT. The topicality of our research is grounded on the urgency of resolving the above mentioned contradictions and the need in investigations dedicated to the implementation of ICT based integrated learning into the management degree program. The practical importance of using ICT in education is providing autonomy, mobilizing students’ learning abilities, creating conditions for individual learning and developing active position in learning activity. Using ICT in teaching subjects in English opens new methodological perspectives for developing both degree and subject programs for future managers. The analysis and comparison with the results of contemporary researches in the field of integrated learning using ICT and the own teaching experience at higher education institution prove the necessity of interactivity of the teaching process to provide communicative interrelation of all participants, self-control and self-correction. The second important characteristic of teaching disciplines in English using ICT is their technical characteristics and didactic opportunities for lectures, seminars, practical classes and individual work. The research has allowed generalizing the experience of implementation of contemporary innovative technologies in the integrated teaching of core courses and foreign languages. The use of ICT in didactic materials provides great opportunities for all participants of the education process, consequently leading to education quality improvement. The developed integrated model of the course programs “Corporate Social Responsibility” and “English for Professional Purposes” using ICT has proved the synergy effect allowing the effective acquisition of professional information on the one hand and the development of both professional and foreign language skills on the other hand, what ensures building the professional competence as a whole. The effectiveness of the model was experimentally proved after the processing of statistical data obtained in the course of the experiment. Considering the overall positive result of our experience we believe that negative factors are to be given a profound research and thorough analysis. In general efficient ICT using requires not only great efforts of the faculty in avoiding the negative factors but the development of the brand new complex approach to the ICT environment. As a conclusion the implementation perspectives of innovative technologies in the professionally training process of future managers are substantiated. The paper provides opportunities of developing the technology of integrated building of professional and foreign language competences using ICT. Such knowledge will help to improve the process of managers’ professional training in Ukrainian higher schools.
