Экспертиза образовательных программ: концептуальная рамка, методика реализации
The authors of the article examined how educational programs assessed in other countries, explore different evaluation models, identify the specifics of the modern national school and offer their own methodology for the examination of school educational programs, which could be an effective management tool for educational organizations.

To help graduate students write, a new service, Writing Support Circles, was implemented at a large southwestern state university in USA. The purpose of this paper is to share how challenges in the design of this service impacted writing self-efficacy of its participants.
This textbook on Instructional Design for Learning is a must for all education and teaching students and specialists. It provides a comprehensive overview about the theoretical foundations of the various models of Instructional Design and Technology from its very beginning to the most recent approaches. It elaborates Instructional Design (ID) as a science of educational planning. The book expands on this general understanding of ID and presents an up-to-date perspective on the theories and models for the creation of detailed and precise blueprints for effective instruction. It integrates different theoretical aspects and practical approaches, such as conceptual ID models, technology-based ID, and research-based ID. In doing so, this book takes a multi-perspective view on the questions that are central for professional ID: How to analyze the relevant characteristics of the learner and the environment? How to create precise goals and adequate instruments of assessment? How to design classroom and technology-supported learning environments? How to ensure effective teaching and learning by employing formative and summative evaluation? Furthermore, this book presents empirical findings on the processes that enable effective instructional designing. Finally, this book demonstrates two different fields of application by addressing ID for teaching and learning at secondary schools and colleges, as well as for higher education.
Entrepreneurship education is included into the innovative development programs of numerous countries. To start the large-scale entrepreneurship educational process basing on the existing educational system is comparatively difficult, as the latter is aimed at training of standard well-known skills, while entrepreneurship isn’t one of them. Currently many universities in the world. mostly technical are inventing formats and contents of the entrepreneurship educational programs. In the article the relevant programs from 20 leading technical universities in Russia and USA are compared by using the official open information. According to the results of the analysis as well as Anatoly Korotkov’s experience in the relevant field in Russia two possible ways of raising the effectiveness of Russian entrepreneurship educational programs are defined in the article.
The article describes the experience of designing project-based learning courses as part of the educational program "Applied Mathematics" in MIEM NRU HSE. The features of the organization of project-based learning for educational programs for mathematical sciences are considered. The results of the annual survey of employers, concluded that the need for various forms of project-based learning to achieve the learning outcomes claimed by employers. We suppose a sequence of the project-based workshops and seminars, as well as their approximate content. An important feature of the practice-oriented courses in the educational program "Applied Mathematics" is its interdisciplinary focus, including the projects carried out in a foreign language.
The paper discusses the design and implementation of an English for Specific Purposes course offered to 4th-year Linguistics and Intercultural Communication majors at Lomonosov Moscow State University (Faculty of Foreign Languages and Area Studies, 2014). Drawing on a selection of domain-specific texts (authentic research reports from professional journals in the fields of linguistics, intercultural communication, and foreign language education), tasks, and activities, the proposed instructional design (named “Scientific Presentation”) aims to promote students’ knowledge of the field’s terminology and concepts and to facilitate the acquisition and development of professional skills related to their future careers in Linguistics and intercultural communication.

We address the external effects on public sector efficiency measures acquired using Data Envelopment Analysis. We use the health care system in Russian regions in 2011 to evaluate modern approaches to accounting for external effects. We propose a promising method of correcting DEA efficiency measures. Despite the multiple advantages DEA offers, the usage of this approach carries with it a number of methodological difficulties. Accounting for multiple factors of efficiency calls for more complex methods, among which the most promising are DMU clustering and calculating local production possibility frontiers. Using regression models for estimate correction requires further study due to possible systematic errors during estimation. A mixture of data correction and DMU clustering together with multi-stage DEA seems most promising at the moment. Analyzing several stages of transforming society’s resources into social welfare will allow for picking out the weak points in a state agency’s work.
