Abstract
The digitalization of all spheres of modern society has led to the widespread use of information and communication technologies in the professional activities of university teachers, which is currently one of the priorities for modernizing Russian education. In this regard, the role of purposeful training and advanced training, which should be based on a thorough knowledge of the whole system of the main factors in the informatization of education, has sharply increased in the system of higher education. This is due to the fact that at present the activities of a teacher of higher education include both activities to build competencies among students and activities to create educational resources placed in the information educational environment, new ways of interacting with students, and the use of information technologies in scientific and research work. The article considers the psychological and pedagogical aspects of the professional activity of a teacher of higher education and advanced training. The article highlights the experience of the Russian regional university in building a system of continuing education for a university teacher in the field of information and communication technologies in professional pedagogical activity in the conditions of an information educational environment. On the basis of an empirical study, in which 1003 teachers of various faculties have taken part (a representative sample was 300 people), it is concluded that targeted training in the field of education informatization affects the motivation and sustained interest in the use of information and communication technologies significantly. At the same time, a high level of cognitive and activity components can be formed only if there is a combination of continuing education courses, high motivation, independent knowledge acquisition in this area, as well as individual additional consultations and targeted support of motivation from the administration.
