Abstract:This paper characterizes financial investigation training as one of the specific analytical tools used in the training programme preparation aimed to complete the mosaic of anti-corruption activities in the Czech Republic. Necessity to develop anti-corruption activities in practice (including learning, training and education) is formulated as a hypothesis, the validity of which is supported by arguments brought forward by the author. His approach is based on the theory pursued by most of the scientists and researchers regarding corruption as the greatest obstacle to economic and social development. This is so especially because corruption distorts the role of law and weakens the institutional foundation on which economic growth depends. In the theoretical and methodological part, the author gives some very general approaches to solving similar problems by education. He uses additional information published by several other authors and discusses the appropriateness of the methods applied by them. On the basis of established facts, he selects a method and uses the information obtained from the research carried out on the author's workplace at the university. In the text the author assumes that the information obtained from conducted research will serve as another argument to support further improvement and development of new methods to develop newly designed e-learning courses.
By using methods of description the author characterizes various steps required when designing a new course. The greatest attention is paid to the general justification of the practical needs of a new course. Also, the additional steps that are necessary to design a reasonably good course are stated in the text.
The analysis-related discussion deals with an issue whether the education can help to reduce corruption and particular to reduce the intensity of its perception. Final paragraphs of the application section include a proposal for a new modular e-learning training programme in the structure, which was actually used in practice.
The paper was prepared as part of the research made at the University of Finance and Administration in Prague (Czech Republic) called "Current trends in development of financial markets", project No. 7773.
