Chronotopic Images of Multilingual Self

by Madina Djuraeva


Abstract

The focus of this presentation is on the temporal and spatial categories invoked in the narratives of multilingual students in Kazakhstan. Using the data collected in internationalizing higher education institutions of the post-Soviet Central Asian nation-state, the narrative inquiry is utilized to analyze the life stories of students on becoming and being multilingual. The Bakhtinian notion of “chronotope” serves as a way to conceptualize multilingual identities shaped by images of space and time within wider processes of socio-economic, political, and historic changes. The preliminary findings suggest that focusing on chronotopes is meaningful in understanding multilinguals’ images of self in local, national, and global contexts.

Abstract

The aim of this study to analyze the impact of university extracurricular activities (ECA) on students` leadership skills. We use two-part (two-sample) primary data collected from foundation course students (CIFS) of Westminster International University in Tashkent in September 2016 and April 2017, respectively. Employing OLS method in our analysis, we find positive impact of ECA on students` leadership skills. We notice lower level of leadership skills among female students from data collected in September 2016, whereas in the second sample we find no significant gender difference. Leadership skills level is higher among students who rents a house in comparison with those who lives with parents. It is necessary to organize a systematic approach that stimulates the integration of extracurricular activities into the educational process, as one source of students` leadership skills development.

WIUT @25 Development Strategy

25WIUT @25 Development Strategy is an ambitious and at the same time achievable plan that articulates our vision for the next 10 years and will lead us to the University’s 25th Anniversary. The strategy is founded on the idea that the university will continue to provide and improve its facilities in a way that our capable and motivated students will be able to broaden their horizons, build up competences and better demonstrate them.
As the University grows and embraces inclusiveness, it is important that the strategic planning ensures that all units work in the same corporate and cultural direction to achieve the University’s strategic goals. To this end, the staff members are invited to carefully study, implement and provide feedback on these development strategies, corporate policies and practices.
WIUT @25 Development Strategy is considered to be a key document in both long-term and short-term institutional planning, providing a focus for the University’s efforts over the next ten years. It is going to act as a strategic guideline for resource allocation to maximise progress and effectiveness of services provided by the University and the departments. The goals set are very conceptual and provide flexibility for the University’s units to collectively implement them by developing their own objectives in support of the strategy.
We believe the strategy is to help colleagues within the WIUT and the external stakeholders to think of the ways they can best contribute to the University’s overall strategic development.
