RANEPA experts discuss Russian education development at MIEF 2021
Experts from the Presidential Academy have discussed a wide range of development issues related to Russian education at every level – preschool, secondary, higher and professional development – at the recent Moscow International Education Fair (MIEF). The Federal Methodological Center for Financial Literacy (FMC) at RANEPA Institute for Management and Regional Development presented four unique online courses at the event.
RANEPA Director for Development of International Cooperation and Education Larisa Taradina explained how the pandemic has spurred on international cooperation between universities. “New opportunities have opened up for creating unique joint educational products with foreign partners,” Larisa Taradina said adding that studying in Russia offers a special bonus to foreign students because they can visit various Russian regions with very diverse cultures, climates and natural landscapes. This factor helps many regional universities join the scope of international cooperation.
Boris Ilyukhin, Director of the Research Center for Evaluation and Quality Management Systems at FIRO RANEPA, opened a discussion of the further prospects for Olympiads. He spoke in detail about the All-Russian School Olympiad – the biggest contest in Russia, where participants now compete in person with the use of information technology. According to the expert, in the near future, the School Olympiad will include new subjects – information security and robotics.
RANEPA presented four programs developed by the Federal Methodological Center for Financial Literacy (FMC IMRD RANEPA) at MIEF 2021. More than 1,500 students have already taken these courses. “We have achieved our goal to involve teachers from remote and rural areas, and those who cannot take a full-time course due to their employment, in financial literacy training,” FMC Director Mikhail Chesnokov added.
