Scientific and research work
Speaking about the scientific schools formed at the university, it is necessary to speak first of all about pedagogical science. Its active formation took place in the 40-80s of the twentieth century. In these years major historical-pedagogical, didactic, methodical problems of education development were developed in the studies of T.Tazhibaev, R.G. Lemberg, S.A. Sitdykov, A. I. Sembaev, K. Berzhanov, S. Musin, G.A. Umanov, N.D. Khmel, R.D. Irzhanova, G.M. Khrapchenkov, K.K. Kunantaeva, K.B. Zharikbaev, H.K. Argynov, M.A. Kudaykulov, A.P. Seiteshev, T.S. Sabirov and others.
A landmark moment in the development of pedagogical science in Kazakhstan in the 40s was the appearance of a whole group of scientists from the centre of Russia. One of such scientists was Professor R.G. Lemberg. Before her exile to Kazakhstan (1937) 13 years of her pedagogical activity took place in the walls of the Institute named after A.I. Herzen. In the walls of KazPI named after Abai she formed the first scientific school. Pupils and followers of this school were widely known in Kazakhstan prominent scientists K.B. Berzhanov, G.A. Umanov, N.D. Khmel, R.D. Irzhanova, I.M. Kuzmenko, B.R. Aitmambetova, B.I. Mukanova, A.A. Beisenbaeva, T.S. Sabirov, G.K. Baideldinova, N.D. Ivanova, E.I. Shnybekova and others.
The results of R.G. Lemberg`s research, who stood in the 40-50s at the origin of the development in the USSR of extremely topical and important complex general didactic problems of activation of students` learning activities, teaching methods, typology of lessons and optimisation of their conduct through the implementation of logical connection of all links of the cognitive process, are in demand to this day.
The scientific and pedagogical school of Doctor of Pedagogical Science, Professor Khmel N.D. was formed in Abai KazPI (now Abai KazNPU), the theoretical prerequisite for the establishment of which was the establishment of an integral pedagogical process as an object of pedagogical activity, within which teachers and students are subjects of activity. Kazakhstan researchers of this direction were included in the all-union program "Teacher" (1986-1996).
The most important task in the years of Kazakhstan`s independence was the constant search for ways and means of professional training of pedagogical personnel of Kazakhstan in the context of world trends, in accordance with the national, economic, spiritual and cultural needs of the developing Kazakh society. In solving these issues, a significant contribution was made by the research of T.C. Sadykov, A.P. Seiteshev, A.A. Beisenbaeva, K.K. Zhampeisova, G.K. Nurgalieva, N.N. Khan, G.T. Khairullin, A.E. Abylkasymova, E.U. Medeuov, A.N. Ilyasova, V.G. Khrapchenkov, B.A. Almukhambetov, R.K. Bekmagambetova, A.K. Satova, L.N. Narikbaeva and many others.
Over the years of existence of KazNPU named after Abay, scientific schools have been formed in many other areas of science: in philology (Orazbayeva F.Sh., Kelimbetov N.K., Adibaev H.A., Zhanalina L.K., Akhmetzhanova Z.K., Shelyakhovskaya L.P., Zhovtis A.L.), in philosophy and social sciences (Shulembayev K.Sh, Esim G., Sabit M. Absattarov R.B.), in historical science (Sadykov T.S., Koigeldiev M.K., Kuznetsov E.A.), in physical, mathematical and natural sciences (Ualiev G.A., Bidaybekov E.Y., Boos E.G., Bektemesov M.A., Kulbek M.K., Kozhamkulov B.A., Beisenova A.S.). In the field of art and culture formed directions, which were led by famous in Kazakhstan artists: Tolepbai Erbolat, Nurlybaev Muratbek, Narymbetov Moldakul, Vladimir Vlasyuk, Alexei Begov; in the field of sports - doctors of sciences, professors Adambekov K.I., Karakov A.K., Kudasheva L.R., Khlystov M.S. and others.
