Abstract:
In modern information society studies are a dynamic planning of educational activities focussed on development of new or changed human intellectual and physical capacities. The growing importance of information (information search, processing, storing, sharing, application) and information mobility promote qualitative changes in the study process – the curriculum acts as a driving force that causes the individual to identify the need to constantly update the knowledge and improve skills.
The new instructions in education significantly impact the person’s possibility to constantly upgrade the skills and competences throughout their lives and re-enter the educational system according to their needs. The study process provides student’s self-realisation, beginning with setting the study aims and objectives to assessment of the results obtained.
No longer is the objective of the study process to give only knowledge but to encourage students for independent, critical, and reflective work as well.
The article examines the innovations at Liepaja University focusing on the expected study outcomes in the study programmes. The article analyses the attainable professional competences envisaged by the study course programmes and student survey results, in which students indicate both the positive professional competence moments in successful implementation of the study process and make their suggestions for improvement of the study
process.
