Several articles deal with concepts related to the realities of various stages of modern continuous education. Among them: "pre-university component of continuing education", "co-construction", " practice in tandem", "cloud technologies", "family open studios", "pedagogical dynasty".

Several authors write on the changes in the training of teachers in the difficult conditions of modernizing society and the emergence of new standards for various categories of educators, as well as the ways of professionalizing the education of future teachers, for whom it is extremely important to act in a team and to reflect their professional activity.
