The EU funded project “Support for Public Administration Capacity Building in Turkmenistan” continued the organization of the trainings within the “Summer School” events intended to prepare the lecturers of the Academy of Civil Service under the President of Turkmenistan (AoCS) and other project stakeholders to launching of the master’s programme. The second day of the training webinar was conducted in the AoCS’s conference hall with the participation of the project international expert Dr. Albena Taneva.    

Dr. Albena Taneva made a presentation on the topic “Organization, Planning, Structure and Preparation of an Individual Master’s Degree Thesis”. The expert explained the procedure for topic selection, content of the application form, work process on the master’s thesis, and content/structure of the master’s thesis. Dr. Taneva asked participants to prepare a draft document with instructions to be followed by the Master’s degree students while writing a thesis. Lecturers organized an interactive working group, prepared a draft document, and presented it to the expert.  Dr. Taneva shared with the participants her expert opinion on the document, gave suggestions on each paragraph of the document and appreciated their work.

Dr. Albena Taneva continued the presentation with the subtopics “Content and structure of the master’s thesis”, “Related literature and theoretical focus”, “Presentation of the part of the world to be studied”, and “Research results, the final stage”. Then the participants drafted a shortlist of the possible questions frequently raised by the students while writing a thesis and they discussed it with the expert.

At the end of the training, Dr. Taneva thanked the colleagues for the active participation and the project team for the provided opportunity to share experiences and establish cooperation with the AoCS.
