The enterprise created by a student  from Yanka Kupala State University became the eighth resident of the Science and Technology Park of Yanka Kupala State University

The company will develop websites and provide services in the IT industry.
The corresponding agreement was signed by Alexander Vasilevich, Director of the Science and Technology Park, and Pavel Romanets, a student of the faculty of mathematics and informatics at Yanka Kupala State University. His company plans to develop software that will help more effectively organize activities in industries such as education and medicine.
– I have a long-standing desire to create my own company. And despite the fact that I am only in my second year, I decided to try my hand. Especially as our University provides excellent opportunities for development. I hope that I will be able to successfully combine work with study, because it is equally important for me to master the knowledge that is given at the University, to adopt the rich experience accumulated by teachers, and at the same time to quickly use the knowledge in practice. – said Pavel Romanets.
A sophomore student, Pavel Romanets, had an idea for a business all of a sudden.
As the head of the study group, he decided to simplify the process of communication between students and teachers in the University environment. As a result, Pavel has created a special software for elders, which he is currently testing and plans to offer soon for use in all educational groups of the University. In the process of developing an application for students, Pavel Romanets decided that the creation of such IT services could be widely demanded both in the education industry and in medicine. It is these two areas that the resident company of the Technopark, created by our student, plans to rely on in the near future.
Residents of Science and Technology Park of Yanka Kupala State University can count on various preferences: low rent, tax benefits, as well as the opportunity to get complete and timely information from competent lawyers, economists and other specialists, whose help is especially needed by young businessmen.

The Science and Technology Park of Yanka Kupala State University has started production of multipurpose protective screens for doctors

Hundreds of protective screens, which are created using 3D printers of the Science and Technology Park, are planned to be sent to region hospitals.
Just a few days ago, a trial copy was printed in the Science and Technology Park, the effectiveness of which has already been evaluated by doctors.
– At the moment, about 30 multipurpose protective screens are ready. There are already applications for the production of 740 copies, – said Alexander Vasilevich, the director of the Science and Technology Park of Yanka Kupala State University – since 3D printing is not designed for mass production, within a month we will be able to print no more than a thousand of these protective screens. But even this is a significant help for our medical industry now. It takes us three hours to create a single protective screen. But we continue to optimize the process and reduce production time. The first protective screens created in our Science and Technology Park will be sent to those medical institutions in the region that feel the greatest need to purchase additional personal protective equipment for doctors.
This is a social project for the the Science and Technology Park of Yanka Kupala State University: multipurpose protective screens are sold at cost price. Screens are made of high-quality belarusian plastic. At the moment, all four 3D printers of the Science and Technology Park are used exclusively to help provide the region's medical industry with the necessary protective equipment.

"The Great Patriotic War in the lives of employees of  Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno": Sergey Berkner

Sergey Samuilovich Berkner was born on May 16, 1923 in Bialystok. In 1942 he joined the underground anti-fascist organization in the Bialystok ghetto. In 1943, he joined the partisan group "Forward", was a spy for the staff of the Konstanty Kalinowski brigade.

Since 1962, Sergey Berkner has been a Professor at the Department of English at Voronezh State Pedagogical University. Doctor of Philology, Professor, Sergey Berkner wrote a memoir-historical book "The Life and struggle of the Bialystok ghetto".
From the memoirs:
"At my father's insistence, I was smuggled over the ghetto fence to a partisan unit in the forest. Other prisoners saw this as madness and a deadly risk. Many then believed that somehow they would survive the ghetto, that the Germans sent people from here not to the furnaces, but "to work".
But my father already saw how it would end soon. So he didn't just give me life once-he gave me fate. The partisan resistance itself was a chance to survive. I survived. I met my future wife in the group. And my father died in a concentration camp, where all the inhabitants of the ghetto – children, old men, and women-were taken from the Bialystok freight station. But first he and other underground workers started an uprising in the ghetto. It was an act of dignified death. By the way, they were secretly helped by some of the Germans. We had a friend, the German social Democrat and anti-fascist Arthur Villa Sade. In Bialystok he was officially in charge of the textile mill. Before I left the ghetto for the partisans, I met with Sade. He gave me a Belgian carbine. Already being in the partisans, I appreciated the gift-we had weapons worth their weight in gold.
Before joining the Red Army, more than half of the detachment died. The rest lived in dugouts. Food for themselves was obtained in the villages or captured the German wagon train. Mainly engaged in sabotage in the German rear and helped Soviet prisoners of war.
Not far from our deployment was a small camp for Soviet prisoners of war. We killed the German guards and released 50 people. Exactly half of them went to us as partisans."

Teachers of Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno are actively mastering distance learning technologies

A program of professional development of teachers “University of Educational Innovations: Distance Learning Technologies” was launched at Kupala University.

The program of full-time distance courses includes classes during which teachers and faculty specialists will be shown successful and promising methods of distance learning, as well as projects for creating and using distance courses.
According to the head of the Educational and Methodological Department of the Yanka Kupala State University Marina Kolotsei, distance education technologies have become firmly established in the educational practice of preparing students in most of the University's specialties. Elements of the distance learning model have been most successfully tested by University teachers in mixed and heuristic learning. Very often, classes begin in the classroom and continue in a network form, or, conversely, the interaction of teachers and students begins in a virtual space and flows smoothly into live communication at lectures and practical classes. Classical forms of the educational process are flexibly transformed, modified, become more practice-oriented and in demand by students.
In the classroom, students learn and test options for organizing and conducting online lectures, ways to create interactive learning elements in the Moodle system, get acquainted with the author's methodology for organizing distance learning activities of students using Google services, get practical experience in creating interactive video tasks, learn to use the case method in working with students in remote form, master the technology of conducting heuristic Internet classes, develop sets of computer tests.
During the course, students will act as both teachers and students. Teachers will work on two different platforms — the teacher's and the student's. The new methodological technique will help students not only master their own digital space, but also evaluate the possibilities of students' digital space.
The course program is designed for eight classes, which will be held in March-April 2020 in organizational form. The result of the students' work will be electronic interactive educational and methodological complexes for students.
Among the moderators of the courses are Marina Kolotsey, head of the Educational and Methodical Department, Anatoly Bogdevich, head of the Educational Department at EMM, Svetlana Gonchar, head of the Foreign Languages Department, Lee Jeong-gu, head of the International Business and Marketing Department, Oleg Kolyago, head of the Educational Innovations laboratory, and director of the Grodno State Educational Institution “Lyceum No. 1”, Igor Maslov.
