Today Kazakhstan higher educational institutions - on a way to Research University. The new model assumes serious growth of research activity and complete involvement of the faculty in research activity. Therefore emergence of Research University staticizes a question of a combination of research and teaching activity, and also a transfer research and teaching practices.
How to combine research and teaching activity? What kind of problems are in the transfer between research and teaching activity? How it is possible to build in results of own researches into educational process? How various components of academic "production" (theories, data) implemented into educational process? What is going on with the transfer of their research practices in educational process at analytical informative level? How is it going at institutional level? It is thus important to emphasize that we are not interested in only progressive methodic and techniques of teaching.
Our problem is connected with a question: how to include not objectified components of the academic knowledge (results of own researches) into educational process? How to teach students to perceive a science as not as a set of indisputable truths and ready technologies, but as difficult fight for an objectification? Answers to these questions, possibly, lie in sociology of a science, sociology of intellectuals and/or knowledge sociology.
We invite the researchers representing social sciences (anthropology, political science, sociology etc.), whose academic interests are connected with the designated questions. The main working language – English. A number of sections within school will be presented in the Kazakh and Russian languages.
