Academic Council Meeting
The meeting of the Academic Council took place on March 29. The agenda included the following issues:
- About the results of the work of dissertation councils and the implementation of state budget themes in 2018.
- About the activity of the departments of physical-mathematical and technical profile.
The reports of the chairmen of dissertation councils and the heads of state budget and grant research topics were heard. The work of specialized councils was found to be satisfactory.
Having heard and discussed the reports of the Vice-Rectors for Scientific and Pedagogical Work D. V. Uzhchenko, L. Ts. Vakhovskyi, O. I. Babichev, the Academic Council noted that the teaching staff of the departments of physical-mathematical and technical profile have 34 full-time employees and 14 part-timers.
The departments developed educational and methodological support for academic disciplines, in particular, work programs that are annually updated and approved at the department meetings, teaching aids, guidelines, tasks for individual and independent work; the courses on the university educational portal are updated; in parallel with in-patient training, teachers conduct lectures online.
Since February 2019, the Department of Information Technologies and Systems has been introducing STARTUP with second-year students majoring in Software Engineering and Computer Engineering. At the same time, public information on the educational and methodological support of academic disciplines on the university website needs to be updated; not all courses are updated on time, teachers do not use active teaching methods.
The teachers of the departments of physics, mathematics and technology took part in 42 international conferences and seminars, 5 All-Ukrainian and 3 regional conferences. The research results of the department’s scientists are reflected in 68 scientific publications, including 1 monograph in a foreign language and 24 articles published in the Scopus and Web of Science scientometric databases. 9 patents for invention and 4 for utility model were received.
The departments pay attention to the development of student science. In the 2018 – 2019 academic year, 58 students took part in the I round of the All-Ukrainian Contest of Student Research Papers and the I round of the All-Ukrainian Olympiad in academic disciplines and specialties.
At the same time, the topics and content of educational activities need to be modernized: the work on shaping the corporate culture of Luhansk Taras Shevchenko National University needs to be strengthened on the traditions and history of the university, nurturing students’ pride in their involvement in the historical and cultural heritage of the University.
Among other things, a scientific work was recommended for awarding the Prize of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to young scientists, scientific and educational-methodical works were recommended for publication, the topic of the thesis for the degree of Doctor of Science was approved.
