Conference. Preference is given to problematic lectures, critiques and conceptual analyses. The lecture becomes a process during which students develop knowledge, provide a motivational component and a general stage of mastering scientific knowledge.

As a rule, a separate course is an element of the lecture course, covering the essential theoretical material of one or more subjects of the discipline. The subject of the lessons is determined by the work program of the discipline.

Classes are taught by scientific and pedagogical workers, as a rule, by professors, associate professors and lecturers. Graduate assistants may be asked to teach individual courses. The department must maintain outlines and theses for all courses.

A practical lesson is a form of training session during which the teacher organizes a detailed examination by students of the theoretical positions of a particular subject of the discipline and forms the skills and skills of their practical application by individually performing the students according to the formulated tasks.
