Background and Aim of Study: In process of introduction of new requirements and standards of teaching, significant transformations of lecturer and student’s interaction take place. A system of role expectation as to lecturer’s main qualities changes. The aim of the study: to research and justify of theoretical basements of diagnostics of results of forming professional competencies of pedagogues in universities. Materials and Methods: For analyzing special features of language training lecturer’s perception that are important for students of our university we conducted a survey: “A lecturer in foreign students’ eyes”. Students of faculty of construction and faculty of architecture of Kharkiv National University of Civil Engineering and Architecture took part in it. This survey been held in several stages. On stage one foreign students of elder grades had to finish the sentence: “Modern university lecturer should be …” by using their own thoughts. After processing the results of our survey, we made a list of lecturer’s features that are important for students. Students of younger grades had to rank the features from the list we got. Our research has been held for 10 years. We have been using methods of covert surveillance and partial distributive analysis of researched material. Results: For Ukrainian and foreign students image of their lecturer consists of many subjective factors of perception and includes several groups of qualities: personal qualities, that characterize lecturer as a person; professional qualities, that characterize lecturer’s professional level; and social qualities, that characterize lecturer’s communicative skills and his ability to “stay in touch” with students. Conclusions: Effectiveness and optimization of Ukrainian and foreign students’ teaching process depends both on lecturer’s pedagogical masterpiece and on his character.
