Abstract: Higher education institutions must provide training for a graduate who has a high level of digital competence. Such training can be implemented in the digital educational environment of a higher education institution. The article de- scribes the essence of the concept of “digital competence”. European and domestic approaches to the study of the formation of digital competence of specialists are analyzed. Teachers of higher education institutions play an important role in the de- velopment of digital competence of future teachers. The digital educational environ- ment requires from them a different approach to the organization of the educational process, the acquisition of new skills and abilities to work in the digital educational space. In this context, it is necessary to develop a strategy for preparing teachers to work in the digital educational environment. The Ternopil Volodymyr Hnatiuk Na- tional Pedagogical University Center for Digital Transformation of the Educational Environment conducted a survey of teachers to assess the level of their own digital competence and readiness to work in the digital educational environment. The au- thors describe the process of implementation of the program for the development of digital competence of teachers at Ternopil Volodymyr Hnatiuk National Pedagogical University.

Keywords: digital competence; digital technologies; digital transformation; digital educational environment; teacher.
