Moscow Hosts 15th Congress of Eurasian Universities Union

The delegation of Magtymguly Turkmen State University participated in the 15th Congress of the Eurasian Universities Union that took place recently in the capital of the Russian Federation, Moscow. The venue for the forum was Lomonosov Moscow State University. In an interview with our newspaper, the Turkmen participants of the Congress – Head of the Research Department, Candidate of History Murad Hojakuliyev and a leading specialist of the Advanced Training Department Bayramgeldy Annaklychev spoke about the goals of the trip and the issues on the agenda of the forum.

Since its inception, the Union has held 15 congresses in Moscow, Kyiv, Baku, Ashgabat, Kazan, Minsk and Astana.

Digital education system

In the Year “Happy Youth with Arkadag Serdar”, the improvement of the national scientific and education systems and the upbringing of scientifically-educated, highly qualified personalities for the present and future development of our life in line with the best international practices continue through the efforts of our esteemed President Serdar Berdimuhamedov. Today Turkmen young people study, learn foreign languages and different subjects, enrich their knowledge and conduct research at the modern universities and institutes equipped with smart high technologies. We have modern and advanced opportunities to improve the scientific and education systems of our country. Nowadays a digital education system or digital learning has the main place in the world. Digital education is the ingenious use of digital technologies and tools throughout teaching and learning and is frequently known as Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) or digital learning. Digital learning is facilitated by technology that offers students some control over place, time, pace and path. Digital learning is replacing traditional educational procedures more and more each day. 

So choose yourself: being multilingual or not?

Language is a vital part of human connection. Although all species have their ways of communicating, humans are the only ones that have mastered cognitive language communication. Actually, language allows us to share our ideas, thoughts, and feelings with others. There are some benefits of learning a second language. Learning a language strengthens the area of the brain which is responsible for memory, speech and sensory perception. Bilingual people are better at retaining lists, sequences, names and directions. They are also more creative, perceptive and can concentrate for longer.

Beauty, intellect and talent

The final round of the art contest Talyp Gözeli – 2023 took place at the Cultural and Business Centre of the oil and gas industry of Turkmenistan. The organisers of the event were the Ministry of Education, Magtymguly Youth Organisation and the Women’s Union. More than 20 representatives of higher educational institutions of the country took part in the final round of the contest. The main aim of this cultural, educational and patriotic project is to promote spiritual, creative and aesthetic education of young people and to reveal and support young talents. Traditionally, this art contest begins a month before the International Women’s Day celebrations. The students had to work hard to be among the finalists: they outperformed their rivals in the university round and prepared for the final. For several hours of the bright show, the participants demonstrated their knowledge of etiquette and proved that they have incredible grace, artistic skills and creative abilities to the judges, consisting of the famous cultural and art workers of our country.

Education is the Abc of Prosperity and Welfare

Back in the 18th century, the poet-philosopher Dovletmammet Azadi wrote in his work Wagzy-Azat, “Education illuminates the mind with the light of knowledge, the heart with a spiritual view and the body with the power of inspiration.” Today, the wellbeing of the individual, the prosperity of society and the security of the state are formed through the educational system. The ethical content of the educational environment covers upbringing of a person who does not strive to live easily, but tries to live life in good conscience. Therefore, the right to education, first of all, is a constitutionally protected spiritual value. The educational system, as a specific investment in the future, creates a cultural and intellectual image of a person and reveals a positive image of the country. Concern for human capital, conditioned by an increase in the level of education and an improvement in the quality of knowledge, is a civilisational perspective of any state.

Turkmen Participants Win Silver Medals

The representatives of our country successfully performed at the STEAM-Azerbaijan-2022 international festival, organised with the support of the Ministry of Science and Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

In total, the festival brought together about 900 participants in almost 300 teams. It should be noted that the abbreviations STEM and STEAM, which are close in meaning, have been increasingly mentioned in recent years in the context of modern teaching methods based on an advanced and innovative way of learning, which combines science, technology, engineering and mathematics in the first case and adds art and the humanities in the second case, when the letter “A” (arts) is added. This approach is practiced in the interaction of theoretical and applied skills.

A book is a true friend

Since ancient times, the Turkmen people have treated books with great respect and honour. In the work by N. Saryhanov, a single book was exchanged for a camel. Our ancestors always had a great demand for books. Although the libraries in Nisa, Koneurgench, Amul, Dehistan and Merv have not survived, the Turkmen people have created stories, legends, parables, and tales with deep meaning that are easy to remember and retell.
