The idea that pedagogical mastery of teacher and his increasing expertise are based on his ability to reflect his own practice is widely recognized in the world, irrespective of the concepts and approaches, which are based on the concepts of teacher preparation. It is showed in this context that fundamental change is needed in aims, means and education processes of future teachers from their perception as science popularizers to experts for complex social and personal development of student (and not only in relation to the group of students with specific problems).
