In the field of training higher educational institution teachers, an era of significant change is beginning. For long, this area has remained the most conservative and was not noticeably subject to changes in society. However, the situation has changed dramatically. First of all, this is due to the rapid development of other areas of human activity, and in particular digital technologies. It is already difficult to imagine a modern society without such technologies, and the main task of a higher education teacher is precisely to train highly qualified specialists with new competencies to solve the challenges facing humanity. Strengthening the explicit link between the needs of society and the objectives of higher education is one of the prerequisites for significant changes in the field of education. The concept of training a teacher of higher education for the future today is largely determined by the development trends of digital technologies. The absence of objective reasons to assume the cessation of the use and development of digital technologies allows us to make an assumption that virtual educational worlds will appear in the foreseeable future, which will become the same familiar environment for acquiring the necessary competencies as higher schools existing in the physical world. This largely determines the relevance of the chosen research topic and determines the need for a thorough analysis of the educational technologies used in the training of teachers. The purpose of this work is, using a combination of analysis, synthesis, idealization and analogy, to generalize at the national and international levels the existing ideas about effective approaches to teaching a higher education teacher, including continuous improvement of competence in his professional field, and modern practice of using digital technologies, and also highlight the most interesting new learning experiences. The necessity of applying the so-called “integrated approach to teaching a higher education teacher” by the authors is proved. The main advantages and disadvantages of using digital technologies are highlighted. Reasonable conclusions are made on the existence of an ideal recipe for combining accumulated educational practices in the framework of traditional education and digital technology.
