On October 25, 2019 Professor Gareth Dyke held an online seminar “Basics of Peer Review: A Student Perspective” for students of the Department of Foreign Languages and Intercultural Communication.
The seminar was attended by graduate students of the department, as well as teachers of foreign languages. The representatives of the Academy’s student government represented by the Minister of Education and Science Akhmetova Dana were present.
Gareth gave the students extensive information on scientific publications, explained the process of peer review, answered students’ questions.
The students noted the usefulness of this seminar: it promotes the development of listening skills and understanding of authentic English speech, which will certainly help them in the upcoming exam session.
This was the second seminar of the guest professor of the IJ and MK department from the academic writing seminar series.
