Abstract

The article is devoted to massive open online courses as a type of continuing professional development of university teachers. It is emphasized that massive open online courses are popular for professional development of specialists, in particular teachers, because they provide timely information, offer flexible, accessible and convenient learning options, allow students to choose the time and pace of study, save time and money to improve qualifications. It is determined that at the same time online courses have certain shortcomings and limitations, first of all of the pedagogical component: low level of interactivity and social presence of both listeners and teachers of courses; insufficiently diverse course design and teaching and learning methods; ineffective methods of assessing students' academic achievements; lack of conditions for the development of a higher level of thinking. The results of online courses on domestic and foreign platforms for teachers of Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University in 2020, as well as the results of a survey of pedagogical and scientific-pedagogical staff on their attitude to online courses are analyzed. The results of the survey were analyzed and verified with the methods of descriptive statistics. The survey confirmed the global trend of training in massive open online courses of highly qualified specialists in order to gain new knowledge in a particular field of science and discipline and the development of professional competence. One of the important goals of online training was to gain experience in online training, which was especially relevant in the context of quarantine restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey proved the positive attitude of the Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University academic staff to massive open online courses as a convenient and affordable type of continuing professional development.
