The article deals with the conceptualization of pedagogical knowledge in the process of scientific research on pedagogy and education. The author describes the conceptual base as the most important attribute of a methodological research, revealing its basic content units, which include ideological base of scientific research, researcher‘s values, style of thinking activity. The paper convincingly proves that the process of conceptualization of scientific knowledge has a trans-level prolonged character and is not limited to prearranged stage research, penetrating all the contents and stages of scientific knowledge.
The article shows that the results of the conceptualization of the knowledge are embodied in all the methodological characteristics of the work: the object and the subject of research, the scientific hypothesis, theoretical and empirical methods of its verification and forms of interpretation of the results. The capacity for evidence-based conceptualization of scientific knowledge characterizes the level of development of methodological culture of the scientist. Disclosed elements of the experience of the methodological preparation of the teacher-researchers in higher and postgraduate education, realized on the basis of the Tyumen State University and Tyumen Scientific and Educational Center of the Russian Academy of Education. We characterize the capabilities and efficiency of the use of pedagogical ideas of hermeneutics in the formation of the conceptual foundations of scientific research on the problems of education in the context of improving the methodological culture of teachers and researchers.
