The pandemic has affected every area of our lives, and University education is no exception. Faculty and students have switched to a hybrid training format: most classes are held in MS Teams. The restrictions and precautions that every student and University employee must observe are still in effect.

To organize a well-coordinated educational process in the Online format at the “Silk Road” International University of Tourism, it was decided to use the Microsoft Teams platform.

This unified, intuitive and easy-to-manage platform allows students and teachers to communicate comfortably, create learning content, and share resources. The platform also allows you to make a call, write a letter, send an online message (chat), or create an online audio or video conference.

One of the advantages of this platform is its integration with the accounts of University students and teachers, which, in addition to participating in online conferences and correspondence in corporate chats, makes it possible to easily and quickly search for students in the database; create study groups, plan meetings and submit completed tasks.

As noted by students of the silk road University, the advantages of using the MS Teams platform include: providing open access to all educational materials, as well as the ability to attach individual tasks on one platform, therefore, it saves time.

The University's teaching staff also shared their opinion. According to them, the convenience of the service is that it organically combines all the functionality of Moodle, with the ability to create online classes, publish tasks, track timely completion and check them, and place training materials for longer storage. At the same time, Microsoft Teams allows you to conduct online classes with an unlimited audience, where students can have live communication with the teacher and classmates via the Internet.

Узбекистан, Ташкент – АН В Самарканде в честь празднования Дня города открыли несколько знаковых туристических объектов. Среди них – новый "смарт-кампус" Международного университета туризма "Шелковый путь", сообщает корреспондент

Настоящих профи в сфере туризма отныне будет готовить этот флагман образования для туристической отрасли. Он был основан 28 июня 2018 года по инициативе Шавката Мирзиёева, выдвинутой на Саммите ШОС в китайском городе Циндао.

С момента начала деятельности университета студенты молодого вуза учились в старом здании профессионального колледжа туризма. В 2020/2021 учебном году молодежь продолжит обучение в обновленном здании академического лицея при СамГУ, где предусмотрены современные архитектурные решения. 

За прошедший период времени здесь велись реконструкционные работы в рамках проекта "смарт-кампус". Интерьер и дизайн нового объекта разработан по стандартам европейских вузов. Реализация данного проекта позволила внедрить электронные технологии в обучение. Компьютеризировано каждое помещение – аудитории, спортивный зал, лингафонные и лабораторные кабинеты и даже столовая.

Здание, имеющее статус "умного кампуса", оснащено по стандартам самых престижных высших учебных заведений мира. Безусловно, что созданные в университете условия и предоставленные возможности, будут мотивировать студентов учиться, работать над собой, приумножать знания, самосовершенствоваться, реализовывать свой потенциал.

Университет уже долгое время сотрудничает с такими высшими учебными заведениями Китайской Народной Республики, как Шанхайским институтом туризма, Хунаньским университетом коммерции, Гуйлиньским университетом туризма, Гонконгским политехническим университетом. Также Международный университет туризма "Шелковый путь" стал частью Альянса университетов Шелкового пути – University Alliance of the Silk Road (UASR).

Вступление в Альянс состоялось в октябре прошлого года в рамках мероприятий UASR 2019 в городе Сиань. Этот шаг вывел развитие международных отношений университета с вузами Китая на новый уровень.

Университет также имеет контракты по программе двойных дипломов с такими мировыми университетами, как Guilin Tourism University (Китайская Народная Республика), Sahid Polytechnic in Jakarta (Индонезия), Sahid Institute of Tourism of Surakarta (Индонезия)

"Китайские университеты очень заинтересованы в сотрудничестве с нашим университетом. По поручению главы государства и договоренности с китайским правительством, в университете работает советник из Китая, который ведет активную работу по налаживанию связей. Китай для нас является стратегическим партнером по привлечению туристов, у нас уже несколько преподавателей, которые преподают на китайском языке, являющимся один из основных языков в нашем учебном заведении", – рассказал вице-премьер и ректор университета Азиз Абдухакимов.

По его словам, если говорить о системе двойных дипломов, то это хорошее подспорье, но не главное для вуза.

"Важнее, чтобы диплом самого университета ценился. Данная система – это такой механизм, который необходим для повышения привлекательности учебного заведения с использованием брендов зарубежных вузов", – рассказал он.

Сегодня университет является одним из самых известных и престижных высших учебных заведений страны и первым вузом в сфере туризма, где предлагается обучение практически по всем профильным направлениям и специальностям бакалавриата и магистратуры.

На факультете "Менеджмент туризма" по девяти направлениям обучаются 530 студентов первых и вторых курсов. В новом 2020/2021 учебном году на первый курс были приняты 384 студента, которые начнут обучение в новом современном здании.

"С начала текущего учебного года по сегодняшний день в учебный процесс вовлечено 12 иностранных профессоров и преподавателей, из которых 4 профессора подписали трудовые договоры до конца учебного года. Заключая трудовые договоры с профессорами и преподавателями нашего университета, мы, прежде всего, уделили большое внимание тому факту, что вузы, в которых они учились, работают и проводят научные исследования, входят в список 1000 лучших в мире", – отметил проректор международного университета Жулибой Элтазаров.

По его словам, учебная программа разработана в соответствии с международными образовательными стандартами ISO9001-2015. В университете введена 5-дневная учебная неделя и соответствующая система обучения 2 + 1. Продолжительность одного урока – 50 минут с перерывом 10 минут.

Today, on October 16, 2020, the official opening ceremony of the new "smart campus" of the silk road International University of tourism took place.

This ceremony was officially opened by the opening speech of the Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Chairman of the State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan for Tourism Development and Rector of the "Silk Road" International University of Tourism A.A.Abdukhakimov, in which he stressed that the creation of our University is a unique case in the history of world universities. The opening of the University was legally marked by the adoption of the Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan No. PQ-3815 dated June 28, 2018. Despite the short term, the “Silk Road” University is already one of the most famous and prestigious higher educational institutions in our country and the first University in the field of tourism not only in Uzbekistan, but also in the Central Asian region.

Also, a solemn speech was made by the Governor (khakim) of the Samarkand region – E.O.Turdimov. In it, he wished success to the University, in particular, to the students, University administration and teaching staff.

Rector of the University – A. A. Abdukhakimov presented the symbolic "key" of the University to the public.

At the entrance to the campus, A.A.Abdukhakimov, E.O.Turdimov, as well as the Chairman of the Samarkand regional Department of the “Nuroniy” Foundation, a hero of Uzbekistan – H.N.Normuradov, cut a red ribbon, which symbolized the solemn part of the opening ceremony of the University campus.

The program of the ceremony continued in the campus building, where the guests were guided tours and presented: an training practical complex, which includes hotel rooms, a bar-restaurant; a conference hall for 250 people, equipped with advanced technologies; University canteen, designed in the style of a cafeteria; a universal sports hall, where University students presented various games: badminton, jumping, gymnastic exercises; and a swimming pool with a demonstration swim.

Tours were also conducted in classrooms equipped with facial recognition technology for both students and teachers, replacing the outdated logging system.

The program of the ceremony was completed with a tree planting action at the main entrance to the "smart campus" of the University, in which the rector of the University – A.A.Abdukhakimov and the governor (khakim) of the Samarkand region E.O.Turdimov took an active part.

In turn, highly qualified specialists will strive to raise the status of the “Silk Road” International University of Tourism to a new level.

The role of the “Silk Road” International University of Tourism is invaluable in the development of the tourism industry, in popularizing and promoting the national brand.

Special thanks to the builders who tirelessly, with invaluable work, reconstructed this building and embodied all architectural ideas in a beautiful and modern structure that will certainly adorn our city.

Within the framework of «Orientation Days 2020», a tree planting event was also held on the territory of the “Silk Road” University, organized by foreign teachers and dedicated to strengthening friendly relations.

Participating in this promotion, the Dean of the faculty "Management of Tourism" Prof. Slawomir Wroblewski noted:

"A person, when planting a tree, comes into contact with the earth, and therefore connects with nature. And those who participate in such good deeds learn to understand and feel nature, appreciate and respect all living things. Planting a tree on the territory of our University is another step towards strengthening the status of the University, like strengthening the root system of a tree."

It is gratifying that today is marked by many interesting moments. First of all, it should be noted that first-year students were introduced to a small but very important part of student life. We hope that students will not only learn important information about academic issues, administrative requirements, and rules, but also gain a first-hand understanding of the General education system from within a multi-faceted society. The orientation Week 2020 event is the best way to start an exciting journey into the world of student life.

We are glad to welcome you, dear students of the “Silk Road” International University of Tourism and wish you success in your studies and researches!
