Abstract: The pedagogical activity strategic goals are associated with current trends in social development and society digitization. The goal-setting aspect of pedagogical competence is of particular importance in terms of changing demands for education and the increasing diversity of the digital educational environment. The “second digital divide” is clearly manifested in pedagogical activity by sig- nificant differences in the goal-setting of teachers who effectively, creatively apply digital technologies, and activities in a traditional paradigm. Constant updating of pedagogical priorities requires further multifaceted research.
The purpose of the study is to review goal-setting perceptions by school teachers and academic teachers. Research methods: theoretical methods of studying psychological and pedagogical scientific publications associated with the problem of pedagogi- cal goal-setting, as well as quantitative research methods, particularly anonymous surveys. The study supports the conclusion that significant pedagogical goal-setting transformation in the modern educational environment is crucial. The detected problem: the overwhelming majority of teachers do not perceive the importance of digital skills, soft skills and lifelong learning goals. It is required to adjust the ad- vanced professional programs content for future teachers and for academic teachers in sections that contribute to shaping goal-setting skills to reflect the multifaceted capabilities of the digital environment.

Keywords: pedagogical goal-setting; digital educational environment; pedagogical competence; advanced professional programs.
