Practice-oriented case-tasks for the course «Physiology of Higher Nervous Activity and Sensory Systems» for the Master of Arts (MA) students have a significant potential not only in terms of obtaining a certain amount of new knowledge, but also in developing the necessary skills to apply this knowledge in professional activities.
The goal of the paper is the assessment of the case-technology effectiveness in the formation and enhancement of research competences of MA students majoring in «Speech Therapy Support for Children and Adults» (Logopedia) at the Minin Uninersity. Preliminary study of the case-problem was carried out at kindergarten No 2, Volodarsky district of the Nizhny Novgorod region.
The target group consisted of twenty 4-4.5 year old children. In the study we used both theoretical and empirical methods, for example, the method of observation, questionnaries, pedagogical experiment, etc.
Our field study resulted in the making up of a complex of articulation and physical exercises for children with mispronunciation. On the basis of the kindergarten’s study we created adequate case-tasks for MA students, future speech therapists. Also we received characterize high achievements in the formation and mastery of the research competences MA students: 90% reached optimal and admissible educational levels. The Master of Arts students’ feedback was positive.
