Abstract
The article is devoted to using innovative technologies in the process of teaching foreign languages. Due to the fact that currently all industries, system of education, politics, etc. require specialists who are proficient in foreign languages. Innovative activity in education is characterized, at least, by development and implementation of fundamentally new content and technologies of training, as well as availability of qualified teachers who are able to provide and implement this activity. The processes of globalization and internationalization require specialists who are able to extract information from foreign sources, interpret and present it in their native language, and apply it in their professional activities. Considering innovative technologies of teaching a foreign language at a University, the author identifies personality-oriented technologies, professionally-oriented technologies, information-communication and computer technologies, including certain methods and techniques. All mentioned above technologies are aimed at developing a student’s personality and professional orientation and self-realization. Personal-oriented technologies contribute to the development of a person’s readiness for life-long language education and self-education for the purpose of intercultural interaction in various spheres of daily and professional activity. Professional-oriented training involves professional orientation of educational materials and organization of activities that form professional skills in various situations of professional communication. The professional orientation of foreign language teaching requires its integration with specialized disciplines, and the content of educational materials should be focused on formation and development of professional competence. Taking in consideration the fact that modern conditions require practical mastery of a foreign language and digital technologies, and the volume of information is constantly growing, it requires knowledge of ways to transmit, store and process it. Information-communication technologies and computer technologies are an effective means of foreign language teaching, as they contribute to formation and development of the skill of independent mastering a foreign language being studied. Innovative direction in development of the educational process involves shifting the focus from the teaching activity of a teacher on independent productive educational work of a student.
