Having summarized the results of the “admission campaign”, the organizers were pleasantly amazed at the number of people who showed interest in the Flying University proposals in the new school season
Tatiana Vadalazhskaya, the curator of the Flying University, commented on to the "EuroBelarus" Information Service.
- As in the previous year, this year I had some doubts that at least some of the difficult courses of the Flying University would not be very popular with the audience, Tatiana confessed. It seemed to me that the FU last year ran out of students interested in such topics as the system approach, mathematics and philosophy. However, it has turned out that it absolutely didn’t! And this year, no less interest in such courses has been shown. We have received over hundreds of applications on these challenging courses. Such a result indicates, at least, terrible hunger for the intellectual work, for humanitarian knowledge.
Through studying in the Flying University, people want to go back to what they did not understand, did not learn, did not appreciate during school or high school years (eg, it may relate to mathematics). Someone wants to find the impulse to the development thanks to the course of a system approach or the techniques of working with the future. The selection of teachers, who will hold seminars and schools, has also contributed. Such personalities as Michal Anempadystau, Iryna Dubianetskaja, UladZimir Matskevich, Andrei Kazakevich, Ihar Babkou – they are attractive by themselves. Listeners have been attracted by the very situations in which they can talk to, learn something from worthy, interesting, profound people.
It is encouraging to see a large number of people willing to join the work of the Flying University. This year, the organizers are planning to try to continue to breed, to differentiate different types of work, different types of participation. This is done in order to make people assess more or less adequately their strength and what is offered to them. So that listeners, first coming to the Flying University, understood that they have begun a serious and fascinating work.
Tatiana Vadalazhskaya notes that those who have participated in the activities of the Flying University before, now have optedfor more complex and diverse types of work - not just lectures, but also seminars and schools.
- Surprisingly, that about two-thirds of applications are sent by new people, those who have not previously been included in the activities of the Flying University. This year, they have found new opportunities for themselves, and it pleases, stated the curator.
