Forms of students’ public assistance in state accreditation procedures of educational activities
On March 27, 2018 NAA organized the third seminar on selection of student experts within the federal experiment “Forms of students’ public assistance in state accreditation procedures of educational activities)”. The event was attended by 38 students and graduates from 18 Russian regions.
Elena Efimova, NAA’s Deputy Director, opened the seminar and wished the participants productive work.
The seminars speakers were represented by NAA’s leading staff: Olga N. Kulkova (General Counsel of the Regulatory and Personnel Support Department), Svetlana A. Vekua (Deputy Head of the Department for the Support of Accreditation Procedures), Nadezhda V. Matyukhina (Analyst of the Department for Innovative Development). Evgeny Matvienko, Deputy Director of the Center for Student Programs (Russian Union of Youth – RUY) also contributed to the seminar.
The seminar participants had to undergo several tasks: to do homework, get tested and pass an interview. As a result, the pool of student experts has been enlarged by 29 members representing different constituent territories of the Russian Federation, including experts from Novosibirsk, Lipetsk, Vologda, Omsk, Chelyabinsk, Tula and Leningrad regions, the Komi Republic and the Stavropol Territory. In total, more than 60 applications were submitted for the participation in the seminar.
Additional information: Since 2017 the National Accreditation Agency in collaboration with RUY has been implementing the experiment "Forms of students’ public assistance in state accreditation procedures of educational activities". Under the experiment, a pool of student experts is formed, which will be gradually involved in the state accreditation procedures of educational activities. The experts can include the students (starting from a second year of a bachelor's or a specialist degree) and postgraduates having no academic debts, with experience in assessing the quality of educational services, including the work in the Public Observers' Corps of RUY.
