• PROTECTION OF SOILS AND WATER RESOURCES AS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR IN FORMING PREPARATION TO THE PROJECT ACTIVITY OF FUTURE AGROENGINEERS IN INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION

    Mechanization in Agriculture, Vol. 64 (2018), Issue 4, pg(s) 141-145

    Here are presented the results of scientific researches on the study of the bases of protection of soils and water resources by future agroengineering specialists in higher education institutions. In the educational process of agroengineering training, it is important to develop a motivational and cognitive criterion of preparing the future specialists for the project activity on the basis of fundamental  knowledge of the mechanical and technological properties of agricultural materials such as soil, water, fertilizers, pesticides, plants, shrubs, trees, as well as other additional products and agricultural waste, etc., for the purpose of carrying out the necessary environmental measures that will ensure the optimization of the parameters of technological processes, machines and structures which are being developed, constructed and projected. Innovative pedagogical technology of teaching is developed according to the method of gradually increasing the amount of educational material, which comes as a result from previously learned and mastered material. It is recommended that about 20% of the training program for agroengineering to be directed by obtaining general and special environmental competencies. The acquired special professional skills of agroengineers will ensure the development of project activity on the basis of preservation and multiplication of natural resources.

    THEORY OF PROJECT PREPARATION OF AGROENGINEERS ON THE BASIS OF SCIENTIFIC WORK ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF AGRICULTURAL MACHINERY

    Science. Business. Society., Vol. 3 (2018), Issue 4, pg(s) 145-149

    The conducted scientific researches on the theory of project preparation of agroengineers are based on scientific research on agricultural engineering which were based on regulatory documents, including the Law of Ukraine “On Higher Education”, which states that the educational process is an intellectual, educational and scientific activity, which is being carried out in institutions of higher education through a system of scientific and methodological and pedagogical activities. The study of the influence of cross-cutting, scientifically substantiated sequencing and step-by-step pedagogical technology of training on the formation of readiness for future activities of future specialists in agroengineering was conducted. In a scientifically substantiated system of cross-cutting design of technical means of mechanization, the key stage is the implementation of a professionally relevant for agroengineer coursework on agricultural machines, which students perform at the 3rd year of study at the university. In these scientific studies, the readiness of a future specialist in agroengineering to design and research activities was assessed by motivational-value, cognitive-educational and activity-practical criteria.

    INFLUENCE OF THE TECHNOLOGY OF THE THROUGH STUDY OF AGRICULTURAL MACHINES ON THE AGROENGINEERS’ READINESS FOR THE PROJECT ACTIVITY

    Mechanization in Agriculture, Vol. 64 (2018), Issue 3, pg(s) 91-95

    Here is presented the influence of pedagogical technology of the through study of agricultural machines on the formation of readiness for the future activities of future specialists in agroengineering. Here are analyzed the dynamics of development of professional competences from the first year of study, during the study of the discipline «Introduction to the specialty», and further on, educational practice, constructive and theoretical courses of agricultural machines, course design, industrial practices, etc. Here are given the examples of a set of basic text-based tasks in the discipline “Agricultural Machines”, which deal with soil cultivation, the work of a cutting machine, a reel, a system for cleaning a combine harvester, etc. The factors emphasizing the quality of preparation of agroengineering specialists, development of the ability to perform design functions are highlighted. The issue of diagnostics and criteria of general amount of knowledge about the agricultural machines at the final stage of training is covered.
