AN ADRESS OF THE ACADEMIC COUNCIL AND SHOLOKHOV MOSCOW STATE UNIVERSITY FOR THE HUMANITIES ADMINISTRATION TO D.V. LIVANOV, THE MINISTER OF EDUCATION AND SCIENCE.
In the modern world the development of the national educational system, the diffusion of modern technologies and youth activities represent the important factor of the economical and political welfare of the country and the impact of our country at the international level.
The actual trends in the world’s educational system (globalization of the market of education, development of technologies of e-learning, such new players in the market as corporate universities, educational corporations and hyperaccessibility of the information and increasing mass media and Internet influence in the educational process and so on) form a fundamentally new environment for the development of the Russian educational system and demand its accelerated adaptation to the new situation and new challenges.
In this regard, it would be important to establish the research university in Russia, whose mission would be active research, experimental and innovative activities in the field of education and technological work with young people. Moreover, such university should become a provider of unique educational programs in these areas not only for the nationwide level, but also for the international level, that would make it as a conductor of Russian "soft power" in other countries.
Taking into consideration the specific characteristics of its mission, it would be more advisable to establish such kind of the research university in Moscow. The university could be built on the basis of the integration of Moscow State Pedagogical University and Sholokhov Moscow State University for Humanities.
The analysis of monitoring’s results of the effectiveness of 2014 institutes of higher education shows both the mutual supplementation of its potentials in some areas and the presence of common problems that can be solved by combining and optimizing its activities.
