University scientists participating in the conference discussed the methodology of pedagogical competence of future teachers, the student’s personal electronic map as a tool for pedagogical control, CLIL technology in natural science teaching, a plan for using seven modules in a new format in biology lessons and a form of organizing independent work of students, ways of collecting samples herbarium and other important scientific and methodological areas of natural science.
Teacher-moderators in Biology NIS Uralsk Panina O.A. and Cristian Zorrilla held a master class for teachers and students on the topic "Features of the use of CLIL technology in Biology lessons." In the master class, CLIL technologies were used, such as “Drilling”, “Taboo”, “Matching”, and “Traffic lights”.
