As one of the key research and teaching departments at the Higher School of Economics (HSE), the Institute of Education trains future leaders, giving them the knowledge and skills to understand and transform education in Russia and around the world. Established in 2012, the Institute has made the HSE a national leader in education reform and research in this sphere. The Institute also works to raise the standards of the HSE itself, helping the university evolve into an internationally competitive center of education. The Institute of Education took its current shape after bringing together the Institute for Educational Development, the Institute for Educational Content, the Centre of Synergetic Anthropology, the Research Laboratory for University Development and the International Laboratory for Education Policy.

Our mission is to modernize and improve the education system in Russia.

The faculty, students, and staff at the Institute of Education engage in a wide range of relevant issues, using an integrated approach to investigate various problems from different perspectives:

• Basic research, applied research, and development studies;
• Expert analysis;
• Consulting on education and education reform;
• Teaching and training;
• Professional exchanges, conferences, and cooperation.

Besides, following regular activities empower us to build professional relationships and promote modernization of education:

• The weekly seminar Current Research and Development in Education;
• Two conferences with Russian experts held on an annual basis;
• An inter-university consortium for institutional research;
• The quarterly, peer-reviewed academic journal Educational Studies.

Holland, a Country of Contrasts and Professionals

Simulation games involve the recreation of various situations within the framework of a specially designed environment. There are many different types of games, but most come in the form of computer simulations used in the fields of medicine, flight training, business, and politics. Simulation games are unique in that they are used mostly in practice; that is, they are constructed and only then is one able to see whether these constructions work or not. To learn how to take a scientific approach towards this topic, Natalia Isaeva, Junior Research Fellow and Doctoral student at the Institute of Education went to the Netherlands to study at Maastricht University.
