One of HSE University’s principal academic divisions since 2012, the Institute of Education (IOE) is a leading Russian think tank and center for research, training and professional networking in education.
IOE aims to facilitate positive socioeconomic change by spearheading high-impact scholarship and evidence-based action plans for sustainable reforms in Russian education and beyond. Our team is more than 100 academics with experience in multiple areas of educational research and related fields, including four most frequently cited Russian education scholars and 15 visiting professors.
With a total portfolio of nearly 100 R&D projects every year, IOE’s centers and expert groups pursue a cross-disciplinary approach that harnesses the latest theoretical concepts and applied frameworks in socioeconomic studies, the humanities and data science. Today, IOE is into six cross-border R&D projects co-run with QS TOP 10 institutions, and acts as a supervising member for the vast majority of OECD’s educational initiatives in Russia (ESP, PIAAC, TALIS, etc.).
Our networking agenda is focused on advancing cross-border partnerships and international community integration. A founding member of the Russian Educational Research Association, IOE hosts three annual global conferences on education, publishes two Scopus-indexed academic journals and holds a variety of international summer schools for early-career scholars.
Enrolling over 600 Master’s and 35 PhD students, IOE’s Graduate School of Education offers a wide range of pre-service and in-service programs for researchers, practitioners and administrators that are designed under modern national and global industry standards.
Topics of resilient schools and how such L&D settings can be best created to empower less privileged student cohorts have recently piqued more interest among educational scholars and within broader public realms. Marina Pinskaya, Sergey Kosaretsky, Roman Zvyagintsev and Mikhail Goshin, experts at the IOE Center for Socioeconomic Aspects of Schooling, traveled to Italy’s Bolzano this September to take part in the 2018 ECER International Conference, where they presented about IOE’s research on resilient K-11 settings.
Flexibility and personalization are universally recognized as the key hallmarks of 21st century learning, but how do we go about implementing these principles in practice? At Arizona State University (ASU), which ranks among top U.S. institutions by technology and innovation, it is an advanced AI framework of adaptive learning that reigns supreme, enabling student-centric strategies that are best tailored to one’s personality traits, aptitudes and educational needs. IOE Head Isak Froumin has talked to Dale Johnson, EdPlus Manager at ASU, about what makes this adaptive learning system tick and how it contributes to effective learning.
Can basic income help even out inequality by empowering the less privileged? How should education be overhauled and what skills will become central to the human capital of tomorrow? Is Life-long Learning in fact set to spark a greater momentum for social mobility? Dr. Isak Froumin, Head of the HSE Institute of Education, and Dr. Philippe Van Parijs, a co-founder of the Basic Income European Network, addressed these and other topics of building a sustainable, better future for everyone during a special session held as part of this year’s ‘OSTROV 10–21’ international foresight forum in Vladivostok, Russia.
2018 RHEC Conference to Host IPA Symposium of Early-career Scholars in Higher Education for the First Time
This year’s International Russian Higher Education Conference (RHEC), which is to get underway at HSE Moscow on October 24, will welcome a brand-new venue to promote early-career research in higher education, Innovative Proceedings & Analytics Symposium.
This September, a Memorandum of Cooperation was signed between IOE and GlobalLab, a Russian-based venue for schoolers and teachers from across the globe to build L&D networks and collaborate on various educational and research projects online.
An international research team led by IOE has completed a large-scale study that analyzes how higher education systems have been evolving in federal countries. The resulting volume has recently come off the press at SAGE.
Russian Education Research Association (RERA) has started its membership in World Education Research Association (WERA). All formalities were completed and a membership decision was made during this year’s WERA Global Congress that was held in Cape Town, South Africa in early August.
145 researchers from 30 countries discussed how higher education systems work on global and national levels, and how they are influenced by the processes of differentiation and integration.
As the 2018 CHER International Higher Education Conference was underway at HSE Moscow during August 30 – September 1, we approached several IOE experts in between the forum sessions to ask about the most interesting topics and areas on the Conference agenda.
A recent study by IOE expert Ivan Smirnov shows that students’ academic achievement can be predicted from their ‘digital traces.’
