He also told about the peculiarities of studying at Iowa University. One of them is the importance of learning English.

A teacher’s loading consists of academic loading, research work, the work in extension service to implement innovations in business, social sphere, for the youth and children, the participation in programs of lifelong learning.

     A teacher’s loading is 50% teaching, 25% research work and 25% extension service. It can also be 25% teaching work and 75% extension service to implement innovations. This approach enables each teacher to realize their potential, to develop themselves, to be of use to students and the university.
