The proposed project in the context of the integration of Ukraine into the European community, designed to solve the problem of lack of awareness of society (especially youth) about the history of development of integration processes in Europe. In addition, to counter the aggressive anti-European information field that has been active in Chernihiv region as a border area (we have borders with Russia and Belarus). There are no academic centers of European Studies in the region. That is why, CHNPU, in order to intensify the transition to European educational standards, proposes a European integration module, which will be teach in one of the oldest historical research institutions of Ukraine – Oleksandr Lazarevskyi Educational and Scientific Institute of History, Ethnology and Law. This will lay the strong foundation for establishing European studies, investigations and fostering international scientific dialogue, integration of local researchers in the European scientific community, and contribute to a democratic society. The Educational Module "The Concept of Europe: From the Idea to Realization" is addressed to 4th year students of the Institute, who will continue studies to get Master`s Degree; and for those of them, who will start an active professional career after receiving a Bachelor's Degree. It should be emphasized that these two youth groups need to gain in-depth knowledge of European integration for fostering international European dialogue; and to see not only prospects for Ukraine, but also opportunities for personal realization and development. To achieve these goals, educational module will be teach using innovative pedagogical approaches such as dialogical method, the problem of modeling, etc. It will cause actualizing of interest in the study of the proposed module topics, develop analytical, communication and research skills among destinators; and promote awareness of European identity of Ukraine.



Пропонований проект в контексті інтеграції України в європейське співтовариство, призначений для вирішення проблеми недостатньої інформованості суспільства (особливо молоді) про історію розвитку інтеграційних процесів у Європі. Крім того модуль призначений для боротьби з агресивним анти-європейським інформаційним полем, яке було активним в Чернігівській області як у прикордонній (у нас є кордони з Росією і Білоруссю).

В нашому регіоні немає академічних центрів європейських досліджень. Саме тому, ЧНПУ імені Т.Г.Шевченка, для того, щоб активізувати перехід на європейські освітні стандарти, пропонує європейський інтеграційний модуль, який буде викладатися в одному з найстаріших історичних науково-дослідних установ України – Навчально-науковому інституті історії, етнології та правознавства імені О.М.Лазаревського. Це закладе міцний фундамент для встановлення європейських досліджень, розвідок та зміцнення міжнародного наукового діалогу, інтеграції місцевих дослідників в Європейське наукове співтовариство, а також сприятиме розвитку демократичного суспільства. Навчальний модуль «Концепт Європи: від ідеї до реалізації» адресований студентам 4 курсу інституту, які будуть продовжувати дослідження, щоб отримати ступінь магістра; і для тих з них, хто почне активну професійну кар'єру після отримання ступеню.

Слід підкреслити, що ці дві молодіжні групи повинні отримати поглиблені знання про європейську інтеграцію для зміцнення міжнародного європейського діалогу; і побачити не тільки перспективи України, а й можливості для особистого розвитку та реалізації. Для досягнення цих цілей, навчальний модуль буде викладатися з використанням інноваційних педагогічних підходів, таких як діалогічний метод, метод проблемного моделювання і.т.д. Це викличе актуалізацію інтересу до вивчення запропонованих тем модуля, буде розвивати аналітичні, комунікативні та дослідницькі навички серед дестинаторів; сприяти підвищенню обізнаності про європейську ідентичність України.
