  • STEAM AS A FACTOR OF INDIVIDUAL SYSTEMS THINKING DEVELOPMENT FOR STUDENTS
           OF ELECTRONICS SPECIALITY

    • Authors: Yuriy Yakymenko, Yuriy Poplavko, Yuliana Lavrysh
      Pages: 4 - 11
      Abstract: The present paper addresses the issue of teaching electronics as an integrative course at university. One of the urgent demand to universities is to prepare future specialists for solving multi-tasked global problems. Therefore, educators need to employ new teaching strategies and methods. Systems thinking skills are considered as the requirement of the twenty-first century that should be developed at universities. We suggest STEAM approach as a powerful tool to foster the development of individual systems thinking skills in students of electronics speciality. In order to verify our hypothesis, we assessed students’ level of system thinking skills and employed systems thinking tools development during teaching field-related and English language classes to accomplish STEAM as an approach that supports individual types of information perception through technical, creative, scientific cognitive skills.  Our assumption was confirmed by the results of the post-test. Among the skills that were changed: information needs and general resources identification, feasibility and sustainability of solution assessment, root causes identification and perspectives evaluation. We also identified the most efficient practical tools and differentiated them by subjects. Due to these transformations, we are able to develop technological literacy and foster cognitive skills such as creative, critical and systems thinking for problem-solving process.

  • TEACHING ENGLISH TO ADULT LEARNERS WITHIN EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AT
           UNIVERSITY: BARRIERS AND MOTIVATION FACTORS

    • Authors: Yashar Alhasov, Anna Verbytska, Tetiana Kolenichenko
      Pages: 12 - 19
      Abstract: The article aims to conduct the experimental research of the adult learners’ readiness to learn English, investigate adult learners’ barriers to study English and develop the model of English teaching environment for adult learners within university extracurricular activity based on the collaborative teaching strategy. The hypothesis of the research is that motivation to study the English language among adult learners will be increased after the investigation of their learning barriers and work on their minimisation in the conditions of university extracurricular work within the collaborative learning strategy. In order to achieve the purpose of the research, a set of scientific methods was used: analysis, synthesis, complex analytical method, conceptual system method, factual method, descriptive method, questioning, testing, observing, interviewing and generalisation. Respondents were 52 adult learners (age range was from 40 to 55) who were the participants of the Ukraine-Norway project, who attended the course “English for Business”. The respondents were united into three age groups: 40-45 years; 45-50 years; 50-55 years. The majority of respondents (51%) showed a high level of a readiness to continue the English study process after completing the proposed course. The application of the suggested in the article model will minimise adult learners’ barriers to study English, increase the level of adult learners’ motivation to learn English, create a positive learning environment, engage adult learners into the English study process as active participants, promote collaboration and support within the peers.

  • LANGUAGE PORTFOLIO FOR BUILDING LINGUISTIC COMPETENCE IN ESP SPEAKING IN
           STUDENTS’ INDEPENDENT WORK

    • Authors: Andiy Kotlovskiy, Nataliya Mykytenko, Andriana Onufriv, Maryana Salamakha
      Pages: 20 - 24
      Abstract: The study shows that language portfolio is an effective tool which is applied in students’ independent work. We aimed to survey students’ views on the usage of language portfolio; to define the types of students’ autonomy with teacher’s guidance that contribute to successful acquisition of lexical and grammatical competences within students’ independent work; to give recommendations to teachers about using language portfolio for building lexical and grammatical competences in ESP speaking. Thus, a mixed research design was employed. The qualitative research design relied on collecting data about students’ attitude to using language portfolio as a tool of building their lexical and grammatical competences in ESP speaking within their independent work. The quantitative research design was focused on interpreting the results and suggesting recommendations regarding students’ independent work in ESP learning. The research was held at Ivan Franko National University of Lviv during December-February of 2019-2020 academic year. The total number of full-time second-year students who took part voluntarily was 250. Also, five ESP teachers participated in the survey. Within the context of the study, the questionnaire was designed to identify students’ attitude towards learning aims, ways to achieve them, type of teacher’s guidance, practicability of keys, instructions, range of suitable techniques. The findings show that the students prefer relative autonomy and half-autonomy with a firm and relatively firm teacher’s guidance to follow while acquiring lexical and grammatical competences in ESP speaking. Most students admit that language portfolio is an effective tool which promotes significant progress in their lexical and grammatical competences in ESP speaking.

  • REGULATION ASPECT OF LEARNERS’ LANGUAGE LEARNING STYLE IN
           DIFFERENTIATED ESP INSTRUCTION

    • Authors: Oksana Synekop
      Pages: 25 - 31
      Abstract: This study aims to investigate the issue of regulation aspect of learner’s language learning style in differentiated instruction of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) at technical universities. In particular, we defined and characterised the self-regulation levels of information technology (IT) students; outlined recommendations for improvement of students’ regulation while developing listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. To achieve that purpose we used mixed research methods in our study which involved 382 third- and fourth-year IT students. To collect the data, “Self-regulation Style of Learning Activities” questionnaire developed by Morosanova and Bondarenko (2015), was used. As shown by the survey, most learners had a medium level of self-regulation, smaller number of students had a high level of self-regulation, and only some of them had a low level of self-regulation, which implies that students need to develop their regulation skill. Using the descriptors suggested by Morosanova and Bondarenko (2015), we defined students’ self-regulation levels in ESP instruction. To enhance the level of self-regulation, share-regulation and co-regulation in ESP learning the recommendations were given. In particular, since learning can be conducted individually, in pairs, teams and groups, various specifics of students’ regulation in ESP study was reflected in checklists for self-regulation, socially shared regulation and co-regulation. For creating the checklists, the phases of Zimmerman (2003) model and cognition, metacognition, motivation, emotion, and behaviour regulation areas were used. Finally, recommendations were suggested to ESP teachers for improvement of learners’ regulation while developing listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in differentiated ESP instruction.

  • TRANSLATION ASSESSSMENT: IS THERE ANYTHING TO BE TESTED OBJECTIVELY'

    • Authors: Tetiana Korol
      Pages: 32 - 40
      Abstract: Due to the complex and integrative nature of translation competence construct, its free of subjectivity assessment is considered quite a challenging task for modern translation pedagogy. The conducted literature review revealed diverse directions and opportunities to raise translation competence assessment objectivity. In this key, there is a need for the further studies focused on the designing and implementing of objective translation tests. Thus, the given paper aims at the development and verification of objective multiple-choice computerised test in Translation for the Financial Sector, which combines key-based grading procedures and involves latent translation phase encouraging students to translate with the use of particular translation transformations engaging proper psychophysiological mechanisms in order to respond the item adequately. This study has a mixed research design and involves the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the developed test performance and comments on it, as well as word dictation, translation declarative knowledge test and subjective translation exam test results of 82 third-year students of Poltava University of Economics and Trade received during 2017–2020 academic years. The findings of this study reported on steady correlation of the results of the developed objective translation test with the subjective exam ones (0.992). This fact gives reason to recommend its application as a supplementary translation competence assessment tool contributing to the assessment objectivity. Further investigation should be directed to the determination of the functions and place of the developed objective test in the integrated system of translation competence assessment.

  • PRE-SERVICE ENGLISH TEACHERS’ ATTITUDES TO CO-TEACHING

    • Authors: Iryna Zadorozhna, Olha Datskiv, Valentyna Shepitchak
      Pages: 41 - 46
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to investigate pre-service English teachers’ attitudes to co-teaching as a professional development tool and a collaboration method. Two instructors co-taught an undergraduate English Language Teaching Methodology course to gain experience and to model this method for pre-service English teachers. 60 students of Ternopil Volodymyr Hnatiuk National Pedagogical University, Department of Foreign Languages, participated in the study for one semester. Research instruments used in the study are students’ reflective journals, focus groups discussions, and a survey. The students wrote regular entries in reflective journals after each session, participated in focus groups discussions, and filled out a survey at the end of the semester. It was hypothesised that co-teaching would engage learners and enhance their learning, help pre-service teachers to develop professionally, and serve as a model of effective instructional technique for their future teaching assignment. Results indicate the effectiveness of co-teaching in achieving these tasks. We also conclude that co-teaching in pre-service teacher education is an invaluable tool in developing teachers’ and students’ reflective skills and collaborative practices. The findings of the study can be applied in the design and implementation of educational programmes for pre-service foreign languages teachers.

  • USING MACHINE TRANSLATION ENGINES IN THE CLASSROOM: A SURVEY OF
           TRANSLATION STUDENTS’ PERFORMANCE

    • Authors: Alla Olkhovska, Iryna Frolova
      Pages: 47 - 55
      Abstract: This paper outlines the results of the experimental study aiming to explore the impact of using machine translation engines on the performance of translation students. Machine translation engines refer to the software developed to translate source texts into target languages in a fully automatic mode which can be classified according to the algorithm (example-based, rule-based, statistical, pragmatics-based, neural, hybrid) and the level of customisation (generic, customised, adaptive). The study was carried out in the form of a translation test held during the first semester of 2019/2020 academic year (September). The subjects included 48 undergraduate students of the School of Foreign Languages of V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University (42 women and 6 men aged from 19 to 22) majoring in translation. They were subdivided into two sample groups: sample group 1 performed translation from English into Ukrainian with the help of the MT engine while sample group 2 translated the same text from English into Ukrainian by hand. The MT engine chosen for conducting the research was Microsoft Translator for personal use. The research was arranged into the following stages: preliminary (designing the experiment), main (implementing the experiment into life), conclusive (processing the results and interpreting them). The comparison of the students’ average results allowed us to come to the conclusion that the hypothesis preconceived in the beginning of the study was confirmed: the quality of the text translated by the students who received no previous training in post-editing with the use of a modern machine translation engine was of a poorer quality compared to the translation of the same text made by the students without the use of a machine translation engine. The students using the machine translation engine showed the tendency not to treat critically the output of the machine translation engine, thus scoring more penal points than the students translating on their own. The evidence from this study implies the necessity of teaching students to use machine translation in their work and to post-edit texts by means of developing the appropriate cross-curricular methodology of teaching.

  • INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS’ PERCEPTION OF TEACHING MICROBIOLOGY, VIROLOGY
           AND IMMUNOLOGY AT MEDICAL UNIVERSITIES IN UKRAINE

    • Authors: Valentyna Melnyk, Galyna Mikhnenko
      Pages: 56 - 65
      Abstract: The increase in the number of international students at medical universities in Ukraine has made great demands for the quality of instruction in the first three years of study when adaptation of these students takes place. The aim of the paper is to analyse international students’ perceptions of teaching Microbiology, Virology and Immunology (MBVI) at Bogomolets National Medical University and outline the recommendations. A mixed research method was applied; the questionnaire with close-ended and open-ended questions grouped in nine sets was developed. Anonymous survey was conducted with the students (N=104) after completing the MBVI course with English as a medium of instruction. The survey has indicated general satisfaction of the respondents with the course. Insufficient proficiency in English often affects the quality of learning, and a low level of the Ukrainian or Russian language skills create difficulties in their communication and effective integration to the Ukrainian cultural environment. The survey results have shown the positive attitude of the respondents to the lectures with the requirement to have more interactive communication between the lecturer and students as well as have identified the difficulties concerning practical classes and self-study. The recommendations on how to improve academic performance of international medical students have been given. The focus is on increasing and maintaining language skills, consideration of ethnic and psychological features of students from different countries and implementing interactive teaching methods so that effective interaction in the learning environment could be achieved.

      Abstract: Studying the factors of successful acquisition of ESL speaking skills in Ukrainian adult learners, the authors focused on the correlation between emotional intelligence and development of oral communication skills, and, on the other hand, on the growth of these indicators as a result of purposeful inclusion of content-related emotions into activities aimed at the development of speaking and listening skills. Theoretically based on the ideas of emotional intelligence as an important factor in human interaction and guided by the hypothesis that content-related emotions intensify emotional involvement and have a positive influence on the acquisition of oral communication skills, the researchers applied Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test and the English Language Oral Communication Skills Test developed by the authors, to measure the key oral communication skills indicators against a 100 point scale. Experimental teaching of 124 undergraduate students of International Relations during September 2018 – May 2019 proved a beneficial influence of including emotions in the learning activities on the acquisition of ESL oral communication skills, as well as on student motivation and overall quality of student experiences. Significant increments in Emotional Intelligence and ESL oral communication skills in the experimental group compared to insignificant growth of the same indicators in the Reference group allow to establish a positive correlation between the growth of emotional intelligence and acquisition of the ESL speaking skills pursuant to inclusion of content-related emotions into the ESL learning in Ukrainian students.

  • STUDENTS’ PERCEPTIONS OF THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COURSE AT
           TEACHER TRAINING UNIVERSITY

    • Authors: Valentyna Bevz, Oksana Dmytriienko
      Pages: 74 - 80
      Abstract: The article presents the integrated course “The History of Science and Technology” developed for the students of pedagogical universities, majoring in physics, mathematics, and computer sciences. The authors highlight the effective forms, methods and means of teaching the course. The qualitative research methods included observations, conversations with students, verbal and written surveys regarding course effectiveness; the quantitative methods applied testing of students’ progress. 56 students from Poltava V. G. Korolenko National Pedagogical University studying the course “The History of Science and Technology” and 53 students from National Pedagogical Dragomanov University attending the traditional courses, such as “The History of Mathematics”, “The History of Physics”, “The History of Computer Science” were involved in the experiment. The results show that important components for organising science history teaching and future pedagogical activities for students are assessment, developing and using teaching aids, and solving problems referring to history. The survey of teachers showed that the effectiveness of studying the course is mostly influenced by 3 main factors: enhancing students’ educational and cognitive activity in the process of introducing new material (76 %); solving problems referring to history during lectures, seminars and doing homework (62 %); doing individual tasks by students (56 %). The efficiency of the course “The History of Science and Technology” is achieved through: revising previously studied material at the beginning of the lecture; introducing problem-based learning; team teaching; individual tasks, summative assessment. The course “The History of Science and Technology” provides students with integrated knowledge about the development of science as well as the readiness to use historical information in future pedagogical activities in the conditions of STEM-education.

  • GLOBALISATION OF THE UKRAINIAN LANGUAGE LEXICAL SYSTEM: AGE, GENDER AND
           EDUCATIONAL DIMENSIONS

    • Authors: Oleh Semeniuk, Tetyana Leleka, Olena Moskalenko
      Pages: 81 - 88
      Abstract: The article is aimed at the analysis of a linguistic problem of the use of Anglo-American loanwords in the Ukrainian language connected with the English globalisation and transformation into the language of international communication. The authors argue that the Anglo-Americanisms can be transferable to the original Ukrainian synonymous words because there are analogues and one-word equivalents for them. The youth slang is considered as a separate part of the national language, which represents the development of society. Therefore, the authors make an attempt to identify its role in globalisation processes. The hypothesis of the research is that the use of Anglo-Americanisms depends on the age, gender and educational dimensions. The analysis of linguistic behaviour based on empirical data was carried out. In order to achieve the aim of the research, a set of scientific methods was used, namely: analysis, synthesis, comparing, generalisation, questioning and interviewing. The study involved 300 people, 150 women and 150 men. Gender has a certain influence on the degree of the use of Anglo-Americanisms in the speech of youth: young men use English loans more often than young women. The participants were divided into two age groups of 17-18 years old and 19-20 years old. The difference between two groups is not significant. Participants were also subdivided into two groups depending on the factor where they received their education. One group consisted of the students studying in higher educational institutions, and the second one was made up of students from colleges and technical schools. The loanwords are typical of the speech of all the young people regardless of their speciality. The youth slang affects the use of English loanwords in the Ukrainian language. The majority of respondents (64%) showed the increasing number of Anglo-Americanisms in their vocabulary. Most of young people prefer them to the Ukrainian equivalents. The Ukrainian youth slang is full of Anglo-Americanisms and this process is getting more intense

  • DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION IN ENGLISH LEARNING, TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT IN
           NON-LANGUAGE UNIVERSITIES

    • Authors: Larysa Kupchyk, Alona Litvinchuk
      Pages: 89 - 96
      Abstract: This paper is aimed at resolving the problem of inadequate level of foreign language proficiency of students in non-language institutions of higher education and discussing effective approaches and methods to improve foreign language instruction at tertiary schools. An analysis of the problem by means of mixed research methods revealed the need to create positive and motivating foreign language learning environment on the basis of preliminary diagnosis through the evidence-based instructional strategies and assessment tools that make a difference in student achievements. The authors substantiate the expediency of applying differentiated instruction as a means of fostering foreign language learning by students of non-language majors, which was proved by the results of the conducted experiment. 116 Bachelor students of the National University of Water and Environmental Engineering in their first year of study took part in the experiment, which was held in academic years 2016–2017 and 2017–2018. The experiment started with the placement test, the results of which allowed grouping first-year students according to their prior knowledge of English into different groups from A1 to B2 CEFR levels. The differentiated instruction was performed in homogenous groups by means of the level-relevant content and materials, teaching methods and assessment tools. The research findings allowed the authors to contribute to improving the course design, implementing differentiated lessons, choosing appropriate teaching methods and gathering feedback. The conducted experiment also helped draw conclusions on the improvement of foreign language learning under newly created conditions, adding to high rate of productivity and flexibility of learning paths. An analysis of the experimental data showed that differentiated instruction can significantly increase students’ motivation to foreign language acquisition and learning outcomes.

  • STUDENTS’ AND TEACHERS’ PERCEPTIONS OF USING ELECTRONIC
           TEXTBOOKS IN EDUCATIONAL PROCESS

    • Authors: Olga Trishchuk, Nadija Figol, Tetiana Faichuk, Svitlana Fiialka
      Pages: 116 - 123
      Abstract: The research evaluates the effectiveness of using electronic textbooks in educational process compared to printed publications. The advantages and disadvantages of introducing e-textbooks in higher education institutions are determined. The problems that students face while working with e-textbooks are outlined. Based on the literature analysis, the authors claim that e-textbooks are more convenient and are being increasingly used in the educational process. A standardised questionnaire including 17 questions was developed by authors to determine students’ and teachers’ perceptions of using e- textbooks in educational process. Data analysis tools comprise the methods of mathematical and descriptive statistics. According to the survey, users want to get cheap but high-quality e-textbooks, with a high level of production, without errors, and with completeness of information. The price and the quality play a crucial role in decision making. Also, the criterion of e-textbooks friendliness is of great importance, including ease of search, the ability to navigate by hyperlinks, and adaptive layout for different devices. The problem of standardisation of e-textbooks may be the subject of further research and practical development.
