Transformation of Educational Trajectories of MSU Masters
ZIVA Svetlana Valeryevna

Abstract: In any period of the emergence of a new mainstream in the country’s economy, such as digitalization right now, obviously there is a lack of specialists in this new field, because practice usually outruns the theory, at first. Now we are witnessing this in ICT sector and IT industry. The vast majority of relevant documents and publications indicates that the increase in the number of graduates for the sector is necessary. But the author illustrates through specific examples from the educational environment of the Moscow State University that at the moment there is an underestimated possibility of creating “counter flow”. The way to form a “counter flow” is the development of digital competencies in those students who do not have an ultimate goal in becoming specialists in IT/ICT (#NOTIT). By acquiring such competencies at senior courses or after graduation they will be able to understand each other with software developers and modern engineers better; to perform their work much faster, by solving the part of the task, usually addressed to programmers; to clearly assign the task for IT specialists for further implementation; and, as a result, they will have an increase in their motivation. An important point is the right choice of age in which it is comfortable to receive digital knowledge and skills by specialists (#NOTIT).

Keywords: competencies, education, digital solutions, abilities, digital skills, master degree courses, ICT sector, IT industry, #NOTIT, artificial intelligence development strategy, digitalization, philosophy of education, philosophy of digitalization.
