On May 23-24, 2019, following the Days of the International Academy of Education held earlier this week, the General Assembly of the International Academy of Education took place at HSE University Moscow. The General Assembly provides opportunities for educational researchers, policy makers, and practitioners from all over the world to meet and discuss key issues and problems in education. This was the first time that the biannual meeting was held in Russia. Over the course of two days, Academy Fellows discussed joint projects and publications and provide opportunities for newly elected Fellows to introduce themselves and present their research. Members also took part in small group discussions on a variety of topics, including digital literacy and math education.
