Studies in the areas of university transformation and educational
SEDeC studies are practice-oriented and aim to find concrete solutions to challenges in government and corporate structures.
The focus is on analysing and describing Russian and global best practices and on developing recommendations and theoretical reflections based on the Centre's extensive experience.
Our expertise is in two areas, university transformation and educational ecosystems:
- ▌ University Models;
- ▌ Effective approaches, mechanisms, and tools for changes in core university processes;
- ▌ HR, research, education, innovation, and other policies of a contemporary university;
- ▌ The role of universities in regional and national development;
- ▌ Leadership teams from contemporary Russian universities;
- ▌ The impact of major national programmes (Project 5–100, the flagship universities programme) on Russian higher education; national policy.
- ▌ Impact of macrotrends on the education system;
- ▌ Competency model for leaders who create new educational ecosystems;
- ▌ Competencies of the future;
- ▌ Global educational innovators;
- ▌ Lifelong education.
Transforming universities is hard. This is a risky business. There are few successful examples, and therefore they are so valuable. On the pages of "T-universities", experts at the SKOLKOVO Education Development Centre talk about what is happening in global and Russian higher education, how a university manager can win the war over development, and about real change projects at four transforming universities in Russia: Tyumen State University, Tomsk State University, Irkutsk National Research Technical University and the Tyumen Industrial University. What did work out well and what did not? The new always faces challenges, and the cases are described as a sequence of complex decisions, and not as classic success stories.
The Atlas of Emerging Jobs
The Atlas of Emerging Jobs is a compendium of promising industries and professions for the next 15 to 20 years. It helps readers to understand which industries are likely to develop apace, what new technologies, products, and practices are likely to appear, and which new specialisms employers will require.
This study offers a vision of the transformation of the educational system, taking into account a social and demographic factor: the ageing population. The Silver University was written by Alexander Levintov, author of over a thousand works of research and journalism, and the author of several unique courses at Russian universities.
4D Education is a rare deep-dive strategic discussion of education. By questioning the often opaque and old-fashioned consensus on the material to be taught to children in schools, the authors clearly demonstrate the systemic restrictions which shape this material. This analytical survey of the material taught in schools could be an invitation to stay within the existing boundaries, or else a challenge to go beyond them and propose other goals or models for the organisation of learning. 4D Education encourages both of these innovative directions.
The Greenfield Era in Education
The world stands on the threshold of a new wave of innovations, which could dramatically change the existing educational landscape. The traditional educational institutions whose fate is most often the subject of expert discussions can be called “brownfield”: a “zone of educational practice” formed over many years. “Greenfield” education will be represented by new educational projects (educational startups) created on the basis of new technology.
This publication offers a detailed analysis of new technological educational projects and offers five solutions for the development of the Russian educational system.
University Autonomy and Accountability in Russian Higher Education
By Andrei Volkov and Dara Melnyk.
Historically, the Russian State has had a tumultuous relationship with institutional independence. For the country to become again an academic superpower, it is necessary to expand university autonomy to enable independent strategic thinking on the leadership’s part and ensure that universities are accountable to their stakeholders. This article considers the broad issues of university autonomy and accountability in Russia from historical and contemporary perspectives.
