INTRODUCTION OF ZHANL MAMYKOVA
“I plan to participate in ISA because it is the best platform for the exchange of knowledge and experience on the implementation of important SDG related projects. ISA will permit me to study the experience of digitalisation of German universities and contribute to improving the quality of education in my country.”
Zhanl Mamykova is the director of the Center for Analysis and Data Processing at Kazakh National University. She has been involved in the development and management of university informatization processes for more than 10 years. During the years of her work, many software products that were successfully implemented in the universities of the country have been developed, and administrative and educational business processes have been automated and optimized.
At ISA, she will study the experience of the digital transformation of education at German universities, and she will develop the concept of a university’s digital ecosystem. She plans to issue a report on the results of her research, to develop recommendations for universities in Kazakhstan on modernizing the university’s informatization strategy and ensuring an effective learning environment. In such a concept, she considers important the tasks of digitizing and developing electronic catalogues of scientific information to introduce information accumulated over decades into scientific circulation and make it more accessible. Therefore, she intends to develop an electronic catalogue of the zoological wildlife collection of the Biological museum of her university.
