TOMSK, Sep 13 – RIA Tomsk. Rector of Tomsk State University (TSU) Eduard Galazhinsky proposed to create a national initiative in the field of education quality – an assessment system based on the best practices of Russia's leading universities; the idea was announced by the rector on Monday at a round table with Russian Minister of Science and Higher Education Valery Falkov.

The round table was held in Moscow. The research "Quality of Education in Russian Universities: What We Have Learned in a Pandemic", conducted by scientists from 13 universities, was presented there. It contains the results of sociological research, an analysis of the practices of Russian and foreign universities, and factors for improving the quality of education in the context of the transition to a mixed learning model.

"Those 13 best practices that universities collected show that the pandemic has shown unevenness: there is a risk - strong universities become even stronger, and weak ones – even weaker (in terms of the quality of education). We have a proposal to create a national initiative for the quality of education", – Galazhinsky said.

He explained that this is about a certain system, which "in a recommendatory sense will allow any university to build a systematic work in improving the quality of education".

"Communication with students and employers, how to conduct and evaluate the self-evaluation twice a year, which technologies and methods to use, and how to discuss the results within the university – this is the minimum set of steps for any university. The universities included in the Priority 2030 program could support this initiative, and together they could put together a tool that would help improve and maintain the quality system", – the rector emphasized.

Minister Falkov, in turn, supported the proposal: "I think the initiative is relevant and timely. The most important thing is the demand of society and employers. We can see what a large number of opinions (employers) as to whether graduates are prepared or not. Therefore, the initiative should definitely be a national one and should come from universities".

He added that the TSU proposal should be submitted in the form of a document by the end of the year: "It should also be clear to society. We are, after all, speaking in professional language. It should be clear to everyone what is behind the national initiative of the quality of higher education".
