The relevance of the research topic lies in the fact that Western trends dominate in contemporary the Chinese realistic art, while interest in traditional painting techniques in a realistic direction has practically disappeared. To preserve the national cultural heritage, it is necessary to study more carefully the possibilities of applying traditional ideas in modern realistic painting. The purpose of the study is to identify the features of the traditional foundations of Chinese painting and their applied value for teaching students of modern painting. The objectives of the research are to analyze the scientific literature on the topic, conduct a survey among students to assess the traditions of Chinese re-artistic painting, as well as summarize the results of empirical research. The research methodology includes the methods of the general scientific group (analysis, synthesis, induction, deduction), as well as methods of art history analysis: historical and logical; analogy method; method of formal comparison. In an empirical study, the method of statistical analysis was used, applied using the program Neural Designer, a tool for advanced statistical analysis. The research materials were the results of a survey of 3rd year students (bachelor’s degree). Three groups of students were interviewed, each of which included 25 people: two experimental groups and one control group. The author of the study came to the conclusion that the combination of traditional and modern techniques in realistic painting in the classroom can increase the motivation for learning, develop new technical skills among students studying in the specialty «painting and graphics».

The announced problems did not arise today from scratch. It seemed that in modern society, with its developed system of hygiene, medicine, sanitary and epidemiological measures for the prevention of diseases (prevention, vaccination, etc.), the mass and uncontrolled spread of dangerous infectious diseases that covered not only local areas, but and entire countries, remained only in the memories of the distant past.
But! As it turned out, the existing means of control were not enough, and now a new coronavirus with the code name - COVID-19 is rapidly spreading around the world and the spread of which is determined by the WHO pandemic.
One of the measures to combat the spread of the virus was the isolation of citizens and, accordingly, a decrease of their activity. But the activity of criminals has not decreased - on the contrary, new circumstances give them the opportunity to more effectively carry out their actions. Therefore, the development of a typical psychological (criminalistic) portrait of a criminal with a conditional name - “quarantine”, seems relevant and promising.
Against the backdrop of outbreaks of coronavirus, more and more people do not part with medical masks, respirators. Although the mask provides some protection against infection, it significantly complicates the process of biometric authentication, which complicates the work of even artificial intelligence technologies.

The primary reason for writing this article is a very special date – the 150th anniversary of the birth of academician and Orientalist V. V. Bartold, an event celebrated in Russia in 2019. At the turn of the twentieth century the scholar and humanist wrote: "Under the influence of the Golden East, Wonderland works written by European orientalists, the East of One Thousand and One Nights gradually retreats into the realm of legends; instead, the picture of the actual life of the Eastern peoples unfolds before us, and we find out the reasons that determined the course of their history and their role in the history of humankind.1 " Famous intellectuals and thinkers V. V. Bartold (1869-1930) and A.Y. Krymsky (1871-1942) and their legacy vividly showcase the earthly fate, scientific achievements and spiritual experience of the history of classical Oriental studies in Russia and Europe.
The collections of the Institute of Manuscripts of the V.I. Vernadsky National Library of Ukraine hold 10 letters written by V.V. Bartold addressed to A.Y. Krymsky, while the St. Petersburg Archive of the Russian Academy of Sciences keeps seven response letters from A.Y. Krymsky. Although the extant correspondence covers a period of twenty years, from 1908 to 1928, this article will focus on the significance of letters dating from the 1920s. The legacy of A.Y. Krymsky and V. V. Bartold has great historical, scientific and cultural weight in the history of Russian, Ukrainian, and European Oriental studies.
The article analyzes the unpublished correspondence between V.V. Bartold and A.Y. Krymsky between 1922 and 1928. It contains valuable data which helps reconstruct the main trends of contemporary academic life and improve understanding of existing problems in the field of Oriental studies in Russia in the 1920s. The correspondence of these distinguished scholars showcases their common professional interest in both the state of Oriental studies and the educational system.

Today Russian academic centers, including Kazan Federal University, are unique comprehensive research and education institutions that conduct research on both classical and modern subjects and implement original professional educational programs. In the history and culture of the peoples of Russia and the historical and cultural area of Volga-Urals in particular, Kazan University and its schools of sciences have played an exceptional role. The period from the late 18th to the early 20th centuries was marked by successful development of Asian and African research in Russia and Europe. A cohort of outstanding Russian orientalists, who represented many various ethnic groups of Russia, have provided globally relevant complex philological, historical, archaeological and ethnographic studies in academic and university centers of our country. Oriental studies became an important educational and scientific discipline and area of focus starting from the earliest days of the university community of Kazan. Lecturers and professors of Kazan Imperial University introduced the society to the history and culture of the peoples of both overseas East and the Eastern part of the Russian Empire, as well as expanded the understanding of the cultural legacy of both ancient and modern Asia. The article presents an analysis of the official project developed by the Board of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Empire and devoted to the formation of Oriental studies (including the research of Asian and African languages) in Kazan in the early 19th century.

Research of the Turkic (including Asia Minor), social-political, cultural and ethnolinguistic space of Eurasia is a significant and long-standing tradition of practical and academic research centers of Russia and Europe, including Ukraine. The Turkic (including Ottoman) political and cultural legacy played an especially important role in the history and culture of the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and modern Turkic states. Famous states and societies of the Turkic world (Turkish Khaganates, Volga Bulgaria, the Ulus of Jochi, the Ottoman Empire and other states of the Middle Ages and the modern period), the geographical and historical-cultural areas that were traditionally occupied by Turkic peoples of the Russian and Ottoman empires and Eurasia in general became a subject of academic research done by Russian and European orientalists (experts on Turkic and Ottoman history and culture) of the 19th early 20th centuries.
A. Y. Krymsky made an enormous contribution into the research of the history and culture of Turkic peoples of Eurasia, and any further studies of his rich academic legacy in Turkology and Ottoman studies during the main periods of his work in Moscow and Kiev remain of great relevance.

In the last decade of the 21st century, research on discrimination and violence against women has increased rapidly. Such close attention of the world community to the inequality of women and violence against them contributes to a large-scale international recognition of the need and timely development of scientific approaches that take into account gender issues on a fairly stable basis. However, the problem of the legal status of women in connection with their increasing activity in public life has not received much attention from the point of view of scientific research. As a result, there are no comparative data in this area. Research work with a gender perspective is needed to assess the role and scope of this phenomenon and to draw scientific conclusions, regulations and recommendations for reforms in the adoption of draft laws, social policies and solutions.

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.

The aim of this qualitative study is to analyse the content of randomly selected articles on leadership
and school management published in scientific journals in Turkey, and to determine the descriptive
characteristics, main and sub-dimensions, and general trends of those articles. For this purpose, the
“leadership” and “school management” directories were scanned in Google Academy. The samples
comprised randomly selected 30 articles that were published between the years of 2015-2021. The
content analysis of these 30 articles was based on main and sub-themes. The results revealed that when
the main themes of articles about leadership were examined, the subject of pedagogical leadership,
effective leadership and rotational leadership were discussed more than other articles. In addition, in
the articles related to school management, it was observed that organizational silence and favouritism
emerged. These main themes created some negative sub-themes, such as fear, anxiety, anxiety, and lack
of confidence and alienation of staff. In that case, it was observed that teachers were also influenced by
their self-sufficiency perceptions.

This survey research was designed to notice the impact of age and teaching experience of preschool teachers on their perceptions of Peter Senge’s learning organization concept of five disciplines. The questionnaire was based on Gravin’s tool kit (2008) that was originally being designed for assessing the working of any learning organization. Out of 350 respondents from 10 branches of a private school in Lahore, 300 pre-school teachers had responded back. When analyzed individually, the effect of age and experience about awareness of five disciplines showed a varied response in results but an understanding about Senge’s five disciplines was there in the responses of sample teachers. Data findings revealed that while a comprehensive understanding about all the five disciplines of Peter Senge’s model was not up to the mark, some evidence about their understanding was still commendable because the concept is still emerging in context of Pakistan.

The study tested electronic educational resources recommended and selected for development of language competencies in future teachers. Motivational, cognitive and communicative criteria were chosen as indicators of professional readiness. The research involved relevant methods and forms of improving language competencies and diagnostic methods. Meanwhile the level of the development of professional competencies was monitored with reasonable adjustment of students’ independent work. The choice of electronic educational resources as the main tool of independent work improves the linguistic communicative competencies of students, activates their search, learning and self-organization; motivates to create their own educational trajectory, and improves the academic performance. The use of electronic resources is not an independent technology for teachers’ training; it requires implementation in the educational process. The effectiveness of these methods of organizing the educational process is 25% of the quantitative composition of the experimental groups, so the subject of the study requires development and implementation in the educational field. The effectiveness of application of the results determines practical value of this article. The offered methods can be applied to students majoring in the Humanities, and in independent language study. This research can be used for development of programs and courses in independent, distance and differentiated learning.

This study investigates the correlation between the flipped learning pedagogy in higher education and the acquisition of 21st century skills in the current digitized environment to meet Industry 4.0 readiness landscape. Primary data for this study was collected using a scientifically deployed mixed methods survey research and in-depth interviews from undergraduate students across universities to get their input on what they experienced and perceived as learners through the classroom flip experience. Until today, there has been lack of focus on Higher Education in the literature on an effective pedagogy for cultivating 21st century skills. This is an original research work which presents a holistic view of  what elements  are offered by ‘flipped learning’ as key to the development of 21st century skills and competences considering the demands of the fourth industrial revolution (IR 4.0) from Higher Education Institutions, for creation of a job resilient workforce.  The findings of the study showed that the flipped classroom model was experientially and perceptibly preferred by undergraduates for the acquisition of 21st century skills and competencies needed for industry 4.0 readiness amongst other reasons.  The results of this study have implications for students, faculty and higher education institutions.

Inclusive education in pre-school education is a general policy and practice in European countries, but implementation of the policy varies from country to country depending on institutional, legal factors, funding, access to pre-school education and pedagogical concepts. The aim of the study is to analyze the practice and innovation of inclusive education in pre-school institutions in Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. Features of the practice of inclusive education for pre-school children have been determined on the basis of qualitative and quantitative methodology, content analysis and statistical analysis. The results indicate that there are differences in the inclusive education of pre-school children in these countries. Therefore, the practice of inclusive education in the Czech Republic is very different where children of pre-school age are highly involved in formal education, study in special groups to a greater extent and in completely separate educational institutions, and to a lesser extent in special pre-school institutions. Segregation in the Czech Republic is more intense, and therefore the level of inclusion is much lower. It was found that models of inclusion in pre-school education institutions in these countries can be defined as a model of full inclusion in Poland and Hungary (79.68% and 82.18%, respectively), partial inclusion in Slovakia and the Czech Republic (64.85% and 19.74% respectively). The Czech Republic differs significantly from Poland, Hungary and Slovakia in inclusive education for pre-school children.

Currently, the modern education system is in the process of transformation processes. One of the directions of reforming the education system in Ukraine should be directed at improving the level of professional competence of teachers, their knowledge, skills and abilities. The purpose of the academic paper is to study approaches to the formation of professional competence of present and future teachers under the conditions of transformational processes in education. The following scientific methods have been used in the academic paper, namely: methods of theoretical analysis and description – in order to reveal the theoretical and methodological aspects of the development of teachers’ professional competence in the conditions of transformational processes in education; methods of grouping, comparison and synthesis - to consider the features of the development of professional competence of teachers in Canada and Ukraine. In Canada, the development of professional competence of modern teachers involves the preparation of an exam by educators, which would certify the high level of their effectiveness. Intercultural competence-based teaching methods, introduced at higher educational institutions in Canada, have a positive effect on the formation of professional competences of future teachers. In Ukraine, the key directions for improving the level of professional competence of both present and future teachers should be professional self-improvement, which is achieved through purposeful self-educational activity. The professional activity of a teacher should include love for children, pedagogical foresight, knowledge of the subject of activity, pedagogical tact, innovative scientific and pedagogical thinking. The development of professional competence is a dynamic process of assimilation and modernization of professional experience, which leads to the development of individual professional qualities, the accumulation of professional experience, which involves continuous development and self-improvement. The professional competence of teachers allows not only applying basic knowledge and skills, but it also forms the ability to carry out practical activities in specific professional situations; it provides creative solutions to professional problems and makes it possible to easily navigate in a professional environment and possess a culture of work. The formation of teachers’ professional competence should be carried out on the basis of the general provisions of the system approach and the use of other scientifically sound approaches.

The present study aimed to investigate the effect of Bybee and Synectics on creativity, creative problem-solving, and performance of ninth-grade students in geometry. The research method was quasi-experimental with pre-test, post-test, and control group. From the entire population of the ninth-grade female students of public high schools in Tehran, three intact classrooms were selected by the cluster sampling method, each consisting of 30 students. Then, two classes were randomly assigned to two experimental groups and one control group. In addition, research instruments included Abedi’s creativity test, Basadur’s problem-solving creative test, and a researcher-made geometry test. In order to collect data, at first, pre-tests of performance, creativity and creative solution were performed on the subjects. After performing the patterns in the groups, post-tests of performance, creativity and creative solution were performed on the subjects. Finally, descriptive (the mean and standard deviation) and inferential ANCOVA statistics were used to analyze the data by SPSS software. The findings indicated that using the patterns of Bybee and Synectics on students’ creativity, creative problem-solving, and performance in geometry were significantly more influential compared to traditional teaching methods. The use of educational patterns appropriate to the educational content will lead to the training of creative people.

The purpose of this study was to assess student’s understanding of variable concept. In respect to the
changes of math curriculum in Iran, especially way that variable was introduced in the new textbook,
it is necessary to assess students’ understanding of variable involving these new approaches. The
present study followed an explanatory sequential mixed method design. The subjects of the study
were 7
th, 8th and 9th grade students living in different area of Tehran city. Data was collected from a
written test and semi structured interviews. Our sample was 400 students. Interviews conducted with
15out of them. By analysing data and textbook based on Kuchemann’(1981) and Sfard’s(1991)
theories, students with such training were not recognizing the role of variable in different situation
and often see it as specific unknown. They also made mistakes for simplifying of algebraic expression
and they tried to get solution by joining of numbers and letters.
