NU Graduate School of Education and NU Library organised a workshop on scientific research
A workshop on organising scientific research projects and preparing research publications took place on 22 April. It targeted academic staff members, young scientists, master's and PhD students and staff members of Nazarbayev University library. The workshop was organised by professors at the Graduate School of Education and staff members of NU library, they also acted as speakers. As outlined by Duishon Shamatov, one of the event organisers, the workshop aimed to involve master's and PhD students into scientific research work, assist young researchers to learn about research projects of their colleagues from other university divisions and probably encourage new joint projects.
Duishon Shamatov, Associate Professor, and Assel Kambatyrova, Junior Researcher at NUGSE, had given a presentation on research methods and shared their experiences. Together with her colleagues from the University of Cambridge Assel has been conducting research on secondary education in Kazakhstan.
