From the 29th of October to the 5th of November, the Laboratory members together with the sociology students spent a week in Novosibirsk. This was an important milestone in the Mirror Labs project, during which we not only collected data for the research, but also shared the findings of our work with schools. We would like to tell you about the results of the trip and further plans.
In this material, we want to take a bit of time away from the preparations for the expedition to Novosibirsk and tell you about the fascinating career of Maria Malysheva. Once upon a time in the distant 2009 the character of our today's material was enrolled in HSE. From the first course she got involved in SLON activities, was with us in different expeditions, gained experience and...became a good correctional pedagogue. After graduation Maria received additional education and nowadays she enjoys creating an inclusive environment for children with special needs. Her career was far from linear, and our graduate tried her hand at different fields before realising what she does best and makes her day-to-day life happy.In the interview, you'll find a colleague's memories of her university days and her work in our lab, the story of her career path, and helpful advice for students. We are very pleased to keep in touch with our alumni so that we have the opportunity to enjoy their achievements as well.
We continue talking about the achievements of our students and interns!
Since her first grade on the bachelor’s program in HSE, Anastasia Petrova immersed herself in laboratory activities. She was engaged in numerous expeditions, participated in project groups and eventually she worked in a laboratory as a researcher. Having successfully graduated from the HSE master’s program last year, Anastasia entered her PhD this year. She would explore the issue of cyberbullying in collaboration with professors Christina Salmivalli and Claire Garandeau. In this interview, Anastasia shared her insights about the enrollment on international educational programs and relocation abroad. Additionally, she gave some valuable tips for bachelor students, who wants to secure great scientific supervisor and enter the prestigious university
A month passed since we returned to Saint-Petersburg from Novosibirsk. We got so carried away with comparing questionnaires with lists of classes to get them prepared for printing that we didn’t have time to tell you about the results of the trip. Now we’re making amends and are going to tell you how Elephant's second expedition to Novosibirsk went, as well as share plans for the next trip in October 2024.
Masha is a third-year student of the educational program "Sociology and social informatics". She takes an active part in research projects of the Laboratory. It was Masha who every day reported about our work in Novosibirsk and shared the research notes with you!
We’d like to share the wonderful news: Masha has moved to China as a participant of the student exchange programme. We talked to Masha and collected her impressions from studying abroad. Read the article to find out why studying at HSE is similar to studying in China? How do locals feel about foreigners? And where is the «Paradise on Earth»?
The expedition finished in the first half of October, the students and researchers of СЛОН have already returned to their educational and working duties, but continue to discuss stories from the field work. Currently, this is very useful – we are preparing the reports and planning further work. And, of course, we have written this final material on the website for those who follow our adventures.
The laboratory has conducted the expedition after a long forced break. The previous field work of students and researchers of the Laboratory outside the city was organised in the distant 2019 – for obvious reasons, until recently we could not afford such luxury. Fortunately, this year, the tradition of field research is coming back!
Long-awaited meetings were held this week with participants of an expedition organised by the “Sociology of education and science” laboratory in Vyborgsky district of Leningrad Oblast. The expedition was moved from Spring to Autumn, so now we have even more strength and desire to start working on it.
This week we have one more big piece of news. In the staff of СЛОН research lab, there is a new colleague!In an interview, Valeriya Ryabkova tells about her career path - education as a philologist, foreign language courses at the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, master’s degree in pedagogical sciences, and also what she will research in the Laboratory. Spoiler: Valeria’s academic interest relates to methods and strategies in learning.We are waiting for new publications and wish you success! And for those who are interested in how to integrate mobile technologies in the study of foreign languages – Valeria suggests reading several useful articles!
There are several things we like to talk about. One of these is the projects and research of students that they conduct at the Laboratory. We especially like when students can share the result of such projects with each other and with others. That is why we regularly hold local conferences of various sizes and formats.
Something in the world goes on as usual – namely, the Mini-Conference of Demo-Reviews of Рисёрч, which is traditionally held in March. We call “tradition” the 3rd such conference, and hardly can you argue that three years is not a reason to use such big words. From the interview with Alla Loseva, you will learn about how MiC DRoP changes from year to year, and what insights and solutions she uses to make the student learning process more engaging and useful.
