The article substantiates the prospects and productivity of the culturological approach, in the context
of which culture is considered to be a source of content of higher pedagogical education and as a
method of its research and design. Theoretical deduction of the concept of “culture” allows us to
focus on the definitions that expand understanding of the essence of culture. The relationship
between education and culture, a person and culture is revealed. The application of culturological
approach in modern pedagogy is asserted, which provides a view of pedagogical phenomena and
processes as cultural phenomena, requires certain ways of their cultural description, interpretation
and construction, and focuses on a broad approach to culture and education in the context of general
philosophical understanding. Probable changes in the content of pedagogical education in the context
of the culturological approach, which cause adjustment of educational technologies, are outlined. At
the normative level, it is manifested in the requirements to the content-related component as
“containing culture” and “creating culture”, of the procedural side, which differs in the integrity,
integrative unity of all the components; management of educational and pedagogical activities on the
principles of dialogue and mutual respect; educational space as a culturally appropriate, multicultural
environment; learning technologies as human-dimensional, innovative, value-oriented.
