Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article emphasises that the documents regulating higher education highlight the importance of teachers’ educational competences. The extent to which higher education institutions themselves set goals to improve the quality of the study process encouraging teachers to improve own pedagogical competences is analysed. The results of the research with participation of the teachers from Lithuanian universities and colleges (n =140) are presented. The participants in the survey expressed their attitude towards establishment of necessary conditions for improvement of teachers’ educational competences. Generalising, it can be stated that a large share of responsibility lies with the HE institution. A lot depends on the personality of the teacher, his/her attitude and willingness to engage in various activities improving own educational and other competences. Thus, a multiple system for improvement of educational competences of teachers has to be created in HE institutions. Referring to the necessity/need to improve their own competences, the HE teachers particularly emphasise the educational competence. Its significance is particularly highlighted in daily activities of the study process. Thus, the research revealed possibilities and problem areas in improvement of teachers’ educational competences.
