Valeriia Zabolotna spoke about the challenges and trends in modern education. Among other things, the dean noted that while struggling for attention, various information sources create oversimplified content, which leads to cognitive primitivization and clip thinking. One has to create the conditions for a «default mode» which enables the brain to concentrate on the most important decisions and insights. To enable this mode of thinking, It is necessary to defocus for 23 minutes.

Some of the main trends of modern education identified by the Dean of Sberbank Corporate University include:

  • Mobile and multi-channel learning
  • Neuroplasticity
  • Transition to digital personalized training, the use of LMS and real-time video
  • The «Life long learning» paradigm: studying always, constantly, everywhere
