Last week’s session held as part of the World Bank–HSE University joint webinar series, ‘Education under COVID-19: Problems, Solutions, Perspectives, Research’ brought together international experts and participants from various corners of the globe to delve into students’ learning experiences amid challenges and limitations stemming from the COVID emergency.
Experts at the IOE Center for Vocational Education & Skills have joined forced with their colleagues at the HSE Laboratory for Labor Market Studies to demonstrate how the link between education and early work experiences of Russian students modifies their future careers and pay. The paper is featured in the latest issue of the ‘Education + Training’ academic journal by Emerald Publishing (UK).
At a recent webinar held as part of IOE’s Year 2019/20 Series on Educational R&D, Ivan Smirnov, Head of the IOE Laboratory for Educational Data Science presented about how students’ ‘digital footprints’ can help leverage our understanding of mental well-being in adolescents and the way it is related to academic achievement.
The Covid-19 pandemic has propelled universities to switch to online learning, which will probably foster the development of online higher education. IOE researchers joined forces with their American colleagues to demonstrate, based on a representative sample of STEM students, that online learning at university can be as effective as traditional in-person training.
HSE has recently entered into a cooperation agreement with the College of Education, University of Iowa. The document has been signed by Iowa University President James Bruce Harreld and HSE Vice Rector Ivan Prostakov. The first R&D outputs from the collaboration are expected to be presented this year.
Students cheat and plagiarize more if they believe most of their classmates to do just all the same. A recent study by Evgeniia Shmeleva and Tatiana Semenova, experts at the IOE Center for Sociology of Higher Education, looks at how factors of learning environment, and specifically the way students perceive the stance towards dishonest practices that their peers espouse, act as modulators of academic dishonesty.
Experts at IOE and Yandex have reported findings from a one-of-a-kind massive joint study that they carried out in association with Stanford and the University of California to evaluate whether and how engaging in practices of e-learning contributes to academic performance in primary school. Completing more assignments online can be specifically of aid in catching up those early-graders who fall behind on math literacy, the study suggests.
