THE FORMATION OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE COMPETENCE OF ENGINEERING STUDENTS BY MEANS OF MULTIMEDIA
Keywords:competence, foreign language competence, multimedia, Master’s student, Mechanical Engineering, speciality, distance course
The research is devoted to the scientific substantiation of pedagogical conditions and experimental verification of model of the formation of foreign language competence of students in Mechanical Engineering. The author defines the concept of “foreign language competence” as a dynamic combination of knowledge and practical skills. The term determines the ability of individuals to use a foreign language in professional, scientific activities and in social communication successfully. The research represents the model of the formation of foreign language competence of engineering students by multimedia that includes criteria (motivation, reflexive, cognitive activity, practical and technological), and levels of performance (high, sufficient, average, low). The pedagogical conditions of formation of foreign language competence comprise the interrelationship of the humanities and professional disciplines in the training of students, the vocational and academic orientation of foreign language learning, a combination of multimedia with traditional forms of studying, intensification of students’ independent work by means of distance learning. The formative experiment reveals positive changes in the levels of forming foreign language competence of the experimental group compared with the control one. The obtained results confirm the correctness of the hypothesis, according to which the effectiveness of professional training of engineering students enhances if the formation of foreign language competence is carried out with the use of multimedia and under certain pedagogical conditions.
