Abstract

The article is devoted to the study of the effectiveness of Academic staff development programme to promote the development of research competence. Mixed method (qualitative and quantitative) was used to explore the problem: the analysis of scholarly literature searching for the term «research competence» as well as modelling structural components of research competence. Research competence is seen in our article as an integrated personal and professional quality of a higher education teacher, which reflects the motivation for scientific research, the level of teaching research methodology, the personal qualities of a researcher, such as innovative thinking, the capacity for creativity and innovation. We have identified the following key components of the Research competence of a higher education teacher: motivational and valuable, cognitive, procedural and active, information, communicative, personal and creative, reflexive; components of research competence form a holistic unity of the results of academic staff professional and personal development. The article presents the experience and results of the implementation of the research module of Academic staff development programme at the Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University. The results showed that participation in the Research modules had influenced much to develop some components (the motivational and valuable, communicative, the personal and creative) of research competence in Academic staff. While learning Research modules university teachers can assess the current level of their research knowledge and skills and take responsibility for their continued professional development.
