Valeriia Zabolotna, Rector of Sberbank Corporate University, shared her experience and presented her vision of effective education, corporate education trends and existing examples of successful educational organizations. On the example of the University of Minerva and School 21, the participants of the seminar learned that there are courses which already apply modern principles of education construction. Popular approaches to permanent education, as well as the trend of personal learning trajectory with the use of gamification, have been successfully introduced at some educational sites.
From the speech by Vasiliy Klyucharev, director of the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience of the National Research University «Higher School of Economics», the participants of the seminar learned about what affects our brain, and how exactly we must take into account the achievements of neurobiology when preparing educational programs. So, for example, the speaker noted that in Russia at the moment, unfortunately, there is not enough expertise for a comprehensive study of the matter, but, still, there are courses which apply foreign approaches.
An example of this is the «Decision Making» course at Sberbank Corporate University, which is based on the approaches of neuroscience as an instrument and motivator for effective education. Vladimir Solovyov, Managing Partner and Founder of EVERYCO Company, considered the main obstacles to development and education, including: lack of desire and faith, both among trainers and trainees, focus on the development of weaknesses, and the desire to teach, but not to give the opportunity to learn.
