Abstract

Adult education in the current changing political, economic, socio-cultural, demographic shifts becomes a possible condition for their self-realization, professional development and self-establishment.

The aim of the research is to reveal the socio-pedagogical features of the educational process of adult students studying in the distance learning system of the Pedagogical University through a sociological survey based on studies dedicated to andragogy.

The scientific novelty of the study lies in the fact that, from the point of view of modernity, the factors influencing the education of adults in a pedagogical university are presented in a new way, their socio-pedagogical and psychological characteristics are described, and methodological approaches to the effective implementation of this process are noted.

The analysis of the research results, data processing and their evaluation allows to make the following conclusions:

  • In order to study the educational needs of adult students, it is necessary to use research tools such as oral-written surveys, discussions, self-assessment scales, essays, analysis and evaluation of the results of various surveys.
  • Overcoming the difficulties encountered in working with ICT requires solving a number of organizational-psychological problems.
  • Learners generally do not experience psychological difficulties in interpersonal communication with younger students, they are often more active and encouraged by the supportive attitude of teachers.
  • Their professional and social experience should be taken into account when organizing the education of adult students.

In further studies on the research issue, it is necessary to take into account the priorities of the organization of professional education for adult students to ensure the development of professional competencies, which in turn will meet the educational needs of modern society, social movements, labor market requirements, socio-economic, scientific and cultural developments.
