That is, the panel of the invited participants and their professional level is amazing.
If we talk about the issues raised in this forum, then first of all I would like to note their relevance, an unconventional view. For example, such aspects were considered. “Meaningful education. Point of reflection”. Here, the idea that the role and mission of the university is the justification of the culture of thinking, new Senses and happiness necessary to achieve the ultimate goal of modern education came to light.
“Packaging educational product 4.0: new content and modern design” in this direction it was said about creating the analytical base of the university, the employer in the market, to create a modern educational product 4.0.
The next expert session raised the question “Cities for university graduates, graduates are drivers of urban development, economics”. How to transform the cities in which the graduate was educated?
Well, the topic of the intellectual battle was the question “What REALLY makes students, teachers, employees happy at the university?”.
The forum was held in a fairly free, creative atmosphere, in the form of a visionary lounge, expert session, intellectual battles, master classes. During the break, enjoying a delicious lunch, you could talk with the conference speakers and share your ideas with other forum participants.
Speaking of ideas, the annual competition of project startups was also organized as part of the forum. More than 60 applications were submitted and the best were recognized: “Ling plus”, “SWNP”, “Smart Type” and others.
The International forum “University – the territory of thoughts” has become a dialogue platform for the exchange of experience and innovative solutions in the field of training of future specialists.
