We relied on a team of professional reviewers and employed the double-blind peer review process.
Education in the 21st-century orients learning technologies to the “free development of a person,” creative initiative, students’ independence, competitiveness of future specialists. A society of any country needs those citizens who are capable of making responsible decisions independently in a situation of the uncertainty of choice, forecasting possible consequences, as well as being capable of cooperation, with a developed sense of responsibility. The effectiveness of educational technologies at all stages of human development is possible only with the implementation of interdisciplinary interaction between various fields of science.
Given the interdisciplinary nature of the contemporary education research, the conference focuses on the two key tracks. The purpose of the track on education and psychology for better human wellbeing is to provide a platform for discussing research results on the following topics: innovative processes in the Russian educational systems; issues of identification, expansion, and management of human resources in education; approaches to and practices of professional developments of a teacher. Also, conference participants are expected to present their empirical research in the field of age, cognitive and socio-cultural psychology; to share their experiences in applying scientifically based methods of diagnosis and counseling; to provide insights into experimental neuro and pathopsychological studies in childhood.
Another key focus of the conference is the cutting-edge research on health and human wellbeing. The discussed problems of the conference correspond to the priority directions of the contemporary educational research. Among the discussed issues on this track are the following: developmental psychology; methods of integrated studies on the problems of training and education in physical culture and sports; cultural and physical development; education management technologies in public health and sports; inclusive education; remedial education; fundamental approaches to solving problems of medicine, human ecology, and human health; as well as experiences, theoretical and empirical studies on the regional characteristics of contemporary fundamental approaches to the formation of a healthy lifestyle and its key factors.
