Keynote speech

What have we learned about school education since the pandemic? 

The global challenges faced by the education system and society have given impetus for research aimed at studying the situation and searching for solutions to new problems. The keynote speaker will present the findings from research done by the HSE Institute of Education that pursued answering the following questions: What is important in education, what is the factor of success? What are the losses from forced remote learning? “Every crisis is an opportunity” – who has gained after the pandemic? What is the role of the family; how has inequality changed? What lessons (both positive and negative) have we learned from this experience – what can we do differently now?
