RUDN held the Student Research School 2020 at Foreign Languages Institute

RUDN held the Student Research School 2020 at Foreign Languages Institute

On May 15 and 18, more than 100 undergraduate and graduate students of the Foreign Languages Institute participated in the new format of the Student Research School 2020. The things that rallied the participants included not only the remote format on Microsoft Teams platform, which had already become familiar, but also the presentation of the material in a simple, clear language. The speakers were the students themselves.

The motto of the School was "If you've ever googled anything, you definitely have research potential!"

"There are a huge number of competitions, scholarships, and all that gives you opportunities, and it would be a shame not to take advantage of them", Anna Ulyanova, a second-year student majoring in Psychology and Pedagogics, stated at the beginning of her speech. "We will provide step-by-step explanations of the application process and give beginners some useful tips."

In response to a statement that "science is not for everyone", Daria Lukina (in her second year, majoring in Linguistics) shared her experience of receiving scholarships and winning various competitions, and said: "If you've ever googled anything, you definitely have research potential!" 

It was the form of material presentation that attracted student's attention at "Lingua Slam-2019" held at the Foreign Languages Institute.

Anastasia Martynova, a second-year graduate student in the field of Education and Pedagogical Sciences, called for following the principles declared by Albert Einstein (If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough) and explaining complex concepts in simple language. 

Taisiya Larkina, a post-graduate student (1 year, Education and Pedagogical Sciences) responsible for Student Research Activity at the Institute of Foreign Languages, provided recommendations on writing research articles and finding publishers for them, and, most importantly, talked on the resources for inspiration: "These are articles on topics that are interesting for you and get you involved. You can post it on Instagram, but you can also write a research article."  

 Conferences offer a great opportunity to test one's research before publication.

Aleksandra Uzunova (fourth year, majoring in Foreign Regional Studies) mentioned an additional motivating factor for participation in conferences: "If you have always wanted to visit Vladivostok, it may be worth looking for a conference there. When your two dreams will come true at once, as it happened to me." 

On the second day of the School, all the participants formed two teams and immersed in research over the weekend, after which they presented their research projects. One of those, "Current Issues of Distance Learning," will be the basis for participation in the selected competition, and the second, "Problems of Audiovisual Translation and the Ways to their Solution", is going to be the research material for subsequent publication. 

After the presentations, the teams took a quiz on the material covered called "Find Your Place in Science", and the three winners received symbolic online prizes.

"I hope we were able to dispel the stereotype that science is far from students, and many of them will now think about how to find a research topic which is interesting for THEM, and will participate in the scientific life of the Institute!" Taisia Larkina, who was in charge of the Student Research School at the Foreign Languages Institute, summed up the results of the School.
