The investigation helped to distinguish challenges to scientific and pedagogical staff of higher educational institutions, the nature of which is the peculiarities of the professional activities of teachers and challenges to the scientific and pedagogical staff of higher educational institutions, the nature of which are the features of the educational activities of students.
