— The report analyzes the main innovations in the Russian educational system, focuses on the core of pedagogical education, in which a special module on educational work is allocated. We also determined the priorities of educational activity in the conditions of the university and, taking as example the master's degree program "Educational activity in an educational establishment" implemented by our Department of Pedagogy, we showed the role of students' research activities in its successful implementation. In particular, we showed the importance of competence-oriented tasks in the formation of research competencies of students, we determined the practical effect of the introduction of materials of master's theses written at the request of educational establishments of Irkutsk and Irkutsk region, and the career growth of graduates of the program was shown as well.

Taking into account the fact that the master's program "The Art of Education" is being implemented at the Mongolian State Pedagogical University, representatives of the ISU invited colleagues to develop cooperation and professional exchange in this direction.

The conference was held at the Mongolian State Pedagogical University (Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia). The goal is to contribute to the creation of an educational space for the exchange of experience and presentation of promising areas of research in the field of pedagogy.
