Education & Development amid & post COVID: World Bank / HSE Seminar Series
We invite experts to share research findings, ideas, and practices about how education systems can respond to various challenges stemming from the COVID-2019 crisis. While addressing different topics, all webinar sessions include a discussion on implications for policy makers and practitioners.
The webinar series, Education under COVID-19: Problems, Solutions, Perspectives, Research provides a venue for practitioners, policy makers, and researchers to discuss and search for evidence-based responses to the major challenges education faces at the global, regional, and national levels in the context of the pandemic. These challenges primarily relate to economics of education (for instance, estimation of losses in terms of human capital and financing) and sociology of education (how does the institutional landscape changes with the new players entering the field? What could the consequences of COVID-19 be for social mobility and inequality, especially for the underprivileged?). Other disciplines involved may be political science, pedagogy, and psychology.
Distinctive features of this initiative are:
- Concrete topic for each webinar, connected with some practical issue or problem of global importance, but as precise as possible.
- Evidence-based nature of presented materials: each webinar offers novel empirical data, most often quantitative, analyzed through the particular theoretical lenses.
- Leading international experts connected with representatives at the regional level. Voices from different parts of the globe will be connected with global picture and statistical trends.
