Natalia Ruda, Oleksandra Nikolina

Abstract: The article deals with the problem of teachers’ psychological preparation to the blended learning. The readiness of the teacher is one of the main issues that need psychological support and development. The problem of the psychological readiness of teachers to engage in an occupation has always been acute. However, the modern environment forces teachers to adapt to all challenges. One of such conditions was the forced passage to a blended learning. As far as this issue is concerned, the issue of psychological preparation of teachers for all the challenges of today is still unresolved, as well as the role of voluntary self-regulation in the structure of psychological preparation of teachers. The study of the phenomenon of psychological preparedness for the use of blended learning in teachers' professional activities involves concentrating on a number of issues. These factors further complicate the training of psychological preparation. The purpose of the study is to identify the relationship between voluntary self-regulation and psychological ability to work in blended learning. The article discusses the theoretical aspects of teachers' psychological preparation for blended learning, particularly the voluntary component. The article deals with the empirical results of the study of the structure of psychological readiness of school teachers to use blended learning technologies. The research involved 30 teachers of different age and representing different levels of education. A questionnaire aimed at diagnosing the psychological readiness of the use of blended learning technologies is developed. One of the components of teachers' psychological readiness for a blended form of learning is studied - volitional self-regulation, which includes indicators of persistence and self-control and its connectedness with the psychological readiness of the teacher. The study of the volitional component revealed that the levels of self-mastery and perseverance of most teachers are at medium and low levels. However, the results of the study showed that most teachers subjectively define themselves as psychologically ready for a blended form of education. It is submitted that the subjective indicators do not coincide with the results of the objective study. The study has become the basis for the development of a set of exercises to augment the components of psychological preparedness.
