Origination of the Institute, organizational and personnel development of the Institute
The Institute of Pedagogical and
Psychological Sciences of the Faculty of Public Policies of the Silesian
University (Ústav pedagogických a psychologických věd Fakulty veřejných
politik Slezské univerzity, ÚPPV FVP SU) in Opava was created by
division of the Institute of Social Sciences on 17. 2. 2003 into two
independent institutes in gestion of the Faculty of Art and Natural
Sciences of the Silesian University in Opava. From that time, until the
creation of the new faculty, the office of the head of the Institute was
held by Doc. PhDr. Bohumil Koukola, CSc. Since 1. 9. 2008, the head of
the Institute has been Doc. PhDr. et PaedDr. Kamil Janiš, CSc. The total
number of full-time employees of the Institute was 8 and that of
external collaborators, 30 in total. In spite of the effort to extend
the spectrum of pedagogical activities, the number of pedagogical
employees has been continuously decreasing, due to decreasing interest
in teacher disciplines; finally, the demand for employees of the
Institute was reduced. After the new head of the Institute was
appointed, the number of external collaborators was reduced and
professionals from other institutes of the Faculty were involved on one
hand; on the other hand, the pedagogical team of the Institute was
stabilized and the emphasis on their qualification increased. Since its
origination, ÚPPV has been strongly focused on increasing the
professional qualification of all permanent employees of the Institute.
The staff of the Institute was extended by three senior lecturers (doc.
Iljuk, doc. Kalnický, doc. Skopalová), increasing the number of senior
lecturers to the current 5 (including doc. Koukola and doc. Janiš).
