The article is devoted to the issues of working out and implementing various taks used in teaching undergraduate students and aimed at forming project and research competencies. The article presents the data of the research conducted at the Faculty of Psychology, Tomsk State University (Russian Federation). The research draws on the study of the global educational trends in the stated field, the study of the tasks’ content and students’ work peculiarities. The conclusion is drawn on the necessity of considering activating teaching methods while working out and implementing such tasks in order to activate undergraduate students’ knowledge, their research potential. We see the research competence as the key one in determining student’s academic and professional success and suppose that such kind of education based on research will allow the students to generate knowledge independently to fulfill academic and professional assignments in future

Anahtar Kelimeler: Competencies; project and research activity in university; activating teaching methods; undergraduate education
