On November 09, 2021, a plenary session of the international scientific congress "Contemporary Challenges and Development of Education in the Conditions of New Reality" was held at the Kazakh-American Free University.
The paradigm of the modern national educational system involves the training of specialists who possess not only professional competencies, but also research skills, the ability to effectively apply theoretical knowledge in a real practical environment. This directs higher educational institutions to strengthen the emphasis on research work, to create an innovative research environment in universities.
The most important component of the international partnership model embodied in the activities of the Kazakh-American Free University is the willingness to share concepts, ideas, resources, experience in the name of achieving the quality of education of its higher school.
