Regular version of the site


Discussion platform is intended as a space for lively communication and conversation about the most pressing issues of teaching. We hold regular meetings for teachers who talk about their experiences, share teaching techniques and life hacks, learn more about each other and about educational innovations.

The goal of our meetings is a continuous exchange of experience within a strong community of HSE teachers.


Our history

In 2017, the “Teach for HSE” project organized its first advanced training program, and even then it became obvious that we had something to talk about, but it was not always possible. Therefore, we decided to create a discussion club about Teaching and Learning.


More than 20 discussions on a variety of topics have already taken place. During the deliberations, many new ideas and even training courses for teachers have been born. Sensitive issues and comments of the participants give impetus to the discussion of new pressing topics.

The discussion platform has become an interdisciplinary field of interaction between teachers. We began to communicate more actively with each other and find out what is happening “behind the door” of a neighboring audience.

We value the private and friendly atmosphere of our meetings, therefore we do not record videos but after each discussion we create analytical reviews that can be found on our website. There we also post a variety of useful materials on the topics discussed.


Come to our discussions to:

  • exchange experiences with colleagues, ask questions and speak out on the most pressing and emotional topics;
  • establish strong professional contacts and friendly relations within the teaching community of HSE;
  • understand how a particular teaching approach fits into your learning strategy;
  • gain new experience in the field of professional communication;
  • propose a topic for discussion.


Meeting place: Professors Club, Pokrovsky boulevard, 11.

We are always happy to welcome new members! If you want to propose a topic for discussion, write or call us:
