Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Nowadays, the changes in the university context confront educators with challenges and dilemmas, which make them seek new approaches to training graduates that will be employable in the national labour market. One of most essential issues is if faculty can meet the demands of the changing educational environment. Thus, in the present paper the authors aim to reflect on the content of teachers' training in the Russian HE; to identify the existing weaknesses, needs and emerging issues in teaching practices and to match them with the best EU teaching practices, as well as to work out some recommendation for developing a sustainable teachers' training model that targets to improve qualification of university teaching staff in educational methods and pedagogical approaches that are considered in the outcome-based and quality assurance context, which impart sustainable education to their students for better employability..
