RUDN expert presents a linguodidactic model of the language training of international technical students
May 10-11, 2018, Irina Varlamova, Associate Professor of RUDN Engineering Academy Department of the Russian language, took part in the International Forum «Russian Language in the Paradigm of Modern Education: Russia and the Ibero-American World», an event held on the basis of the University of Cadiz (Spain) in order to promote the Russian language, Russian education and science in Spain, Latin America and the Caribbean, establish and develop international contacts in the humanitarian, natural-science, engineering, technological, information and educational spheres, as well as partnership relations between Russian universities and educational institutions in the region.
The program of the event included the most relevant topics on the issues of humanitarization and internationalization of education, multiculturalism and preservation of traditions, translation problems, and the issues of teaching natural, technical and exact sciences.
In her presentation «Accompanying phonetic course in the context of professionally oriented teaching of Russian as a foreign language» at the session of the Section «Russian Language and Literature» I.Varlamova told about the linguodidactic model of language training for international students majoring in engineering sciences developed at the Russian Language Department of the RUDN Academy of Engineering in the framework of professionally oriented training. She stressed the need to include an accompanying phonetic course in the process of teaching international students outlining the main linguistic methods of constructing this course and selecting language material.
The Forum was attended by academics from 23 Russian and 11 foreign universities in Spain, Nicaragua, Colombia, Cuba and Argentina, including the National University of Colombia (QS 254), the St. Petersburg State University (QS240), the National Research Nuclear University "MEPhI" (QS 373), Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) (QS 373), St. Petersburg Polytechnic University of Peter the Great (QS 401-410), etc.
RUDN mathematicians investigated the possibility of combining 5 GNR technology and WiGig — a high-frequency range that allows you to transfer data at speeds up to 10 Gbps. This will smooth traffic fluctuations in 5Gnetworks and cope with user requests.
Scientists from the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology RAS, RUDN University, St. Petersburg State University and the Tyumen Scientific Centre SB RAS studied the microbial communities from several lakes of the Yamal Peninsula. It turned out that methanotrophs (bacteria that use methane as a source of energy) consume methane more actively in the deep mature lakes of the peninsula than in small thermokarst lakes. In this regard, methane emissions into the atmosphere from the surface of deep lakes are low, and only small (relatively younger thermokarst lakes with constitutional ground ice) can make a significant contribution to methane emissions in the north of Western Siberia. Thus, bacteria perform an important function for the climate balance — they reduce the emission of methane into the atmosphere.
RUDN University physicists have described the conditions for the most efficient operation of long mirror-based variant of cyclotron in the autoresonance mode. These data will bring better understanding of plasma processes in magnetic traps.
