Abstract
This article focuses on the problem of forming general professional competencies and skills of journalists in the conditions of digitalization of RUDN University’s additional education. The purpose of this article is to present the possibilities of digitalization of additional education to form general professional competencies at the Department of Mass Communications of RUDN Faculty of Philology. Objectives of the article are to present a brief overview of research on the subject of digitalization of higher education; to identify the main directions of digitalization of additional education programs based on RUDN experience, and to analyze the potential of digitalization of additional education in the context of building general professional competencies and skills based on the monitoring scheme. The research methodology includes methods of the general scientific group, as well as a number of special methods, which allow realizing the purpose and objectives set in the work. Through research, the method of sociological modeling was used within the framework of the criteria proposed by the authors of the article; the general probability sample can make up 300 people: 1st, 2nd and 3rd-year students of journalism at RUDN and in the programs of additional education. The research allowed the authors to conclude that the digitalization of additional education programs will solve some problems of forming general professional competencies (in particular, in relation to the acquisition of skills to work with user content). The authors of the article also come to the conclusion that the digitalization of RUDN additional education programs at the Department of Mass Communications will allow students to more fully master the general professional competencies required by FSES “+++” for the Bachelor’s degree.
